Women spreading topsoil on sustainable garden bed

Morningside Urban Market Garden (MUMG) builds on the existing skills of migrant and refugee background women to teach them about the business of urban market gardening as we build a social enterprise supplying local cafes and neighbours with microgreens, edible flowers and organic produce. Currently operating across two sites in urban Tāmaki Makaurau, MUMG supplies a number of local cafes and an organic grocer, all within a kilometre of the garden.


Since November 2018, MUMG  has been prototyping infrastructure, systems and curriculum using organic growing practices. Raised beds in upcycled apple crates, a tunnel house, propagation, watering and composting systems are now established and are used to supply local demand as migrant and refugee background women are supported to learn about the business of urban market gardening.

MUMG operates a two-year programme of learning and mentoring. The intention is for the first cohort of women to learn for a full calendar year. They will then mentor a second cohort before taking their skills into their own enterprises. The second cohort will mentor the third, and so on.

The women are encouraged to start their own enterprises before they leave the programme, and produce from these gardens can be sold into the market MUMG has secured. The women also have the opportunity to work in the garden in paid roles.
