The Marlborough Community Gardens are located at the end of Ralph Ballinger Drive off Budge Street and next to the NMIT. The Gardens are at an early stage of development with 12 individual allotments, compost-making facilities, garden tools, taps and hoses and an area to sit and enjoy the peaceful nature of food growing all around you. We encourage and welcome any person or group to become involved who has an interest or would like to get interested in the growing of garden fresh produce and enjoys being part of community activities. The participation by young people is actively promoted and supported. There are many ways of being of a part of this community initiative regardless of how much you know about gardening or how much time you have available for a contribution. Our objectives are best summed up with our Mission Statement: “To Provide a Sustainable Environment for the Development of Smart Gardens with a Valued Community Asset for the People of the Marlborough”.
