About My Business

Aunts Garden is a small two-person business run by two gardening-obsessed friends who met through a plant swap. Between my colleague and I, we are able to supply locally grown and harvested seeds solely from our own plants, and we test the viability of everything before we offer it. With a lean towards permaculture and eco-friendly, and especially the unique and unusual. We also operate a small wholesale division, from which we grow our plants and supply them in bulk to companies for selling to the public, a small rongoa Maori balm company that supplies a well-known historic missions trust as well as a nationally acclaimed gardening store, and I personally run the koha collective which donates excess fruit, seeds, and seedlings to local community members who are looking to become self-reliant with edible gardens or are fundraising for community or Kura.

Why We Should Win The Peoples Choice Award

Here at Aunts Garden we strongly believe in giving back to our community. My gardening community has done so much for me personally, even going so far as to raise money to help my family with the restoration of our whanau homestead. I also strongly believe that food should be accessible to everyone, we also want to find a way to be more than just a business. With that in mind, I personally run the #kohacollective which donates excess fruit, seeds, and seedlings to local community members who are looking to become self-reliant with edible gardens or are fundraising for the community or Kura.
