What we do
MUMG is a market garden that sits in the heart of Morningside. We grow microgreens, edible flowers, and fresh produce for supply to the cafes in our area – all organic.
But that’s not all we do.
We upskill migrant and refugee background women in the business of urban market gardening. Each year we have a new intake – for women interested in creating micro-incomes from their gardening skills and growing food for themselves, their whanau, and the community.
Social connection and skills are at the heart of that- and through our training programmes we offer pathways which build on existing skills as women settle in their new communities in Tamaki Makaurau.
We rely almost entirely on grants and donations to stay alive in the community. So we’ve come up with ‘Friends of MUMG’ – for locals who believe in what we’re doing.

The Minani family have always been farmers. In their homeland of Burundi in Africa, that’s what everyone has always done. Olive Minani joined the MUMG team in 2018 to better understand the growing conditions in Aotearoa, so she could share her love of growing organic food for her whanau and community.
“Being a part of MUMG has helped me meet local people and make friends, showed me how to manage the seasons, and what to plant and when in New Zealand”
Olive shares her range of delicious organic produce at a selection of local markets each week, stop by for a chat the next time you are at Wesley Market, Te Puna Market, or Otara Market or click and collect from the farm gate.
