Community gardens are springing up all over the country, in all ways, shapes and forms. Lynn Freeman visited Kapiti coast gardener Hannah Zwartz who's involved with helping people wanting to start community gardens and is also researching different models of community gardens here and overseas. Joining Hannah in the conversation is Sarah Adams from Wellington City Council who works with people wanting to set up gardens on council owned land.

Charlotte Smith is one of the people behind the established Devonport Community Garden and Peter Buchanan chats about Dunedin’s very new Bathgate Park Community Garden set up by GrowSouth.
