Visit the Gardens
Kelmarna Gardens is a space for everyone, open seven days a week through the pedestrian gate at the Hukanui Crescent entrance. Our Shop hours are Wednesday - Friday, 10am - 4pm, though you are welcome to walk around outside of these times.
Feel free to wander the grounds and enjoy the peaceful country environment. You'll find chickens, vegetable gardens, a pony, a food forest, beehives, worm farms, compost making, and native trees and flax.
The gardens are maintained by Garden Manager Adrian Roche and a team of volunteers, with the support of other community groups. A number of groups and volunteers have their own plots, and often cook meals, with the vegetables they’ve grown, in an onsite kitchen. Staple food grown includes potatoes, pumpkins, courgettes, sweet corn, salad plants as well as medicinal plants and herbs. Seedlings are germinated organically on site in the glass houses.
As Kelmarna is a sensitive space where food is grown, please be mindful of the vegetables and walk with care.
