The Gardens Story
Just because we don’t have enough on our plate (excuse the pun!), we recently decided to embark on a journey to grow spray free food on our farm.
It’s been an amazing journey so far…In August 2020 we started to clear and prepare the area of land we wanted to use and started to grow seedlings in our nursery. Plots and Beds were then formed. November 2020 we had our first mini harvest of salad greens and radishes.
Welcome Rock Gardens is a unique bio-intensive market garden located in Southland 45 minutes South of Queenstown. We are growers of spray free veggies and salads using natural growing methods and only hand powered tools.
Welcome Rock Gardens is a micro-farm using a bio intensive cropping system. Based on low-tech, high-yield methods of production it uses an area of land approximately 1/4 of an acre.
We are a sustainable small scale farm, using unique food systems to produce high quality produce to our local communities. Our methods focus around bio-intensive, spray free, human scale natural growing procedures to build soil structure and life.
We are caretakers of the land and want to improve its condition for the future and increase productivity in a healthy sustainable way. We wish to create a place and produce that other people can share and enjoy and ultimately benefit from in some way.
