//093 Yvonne Thomas, mentor at Auckland Teaching Gardens Trust

November 2, 2021

Yvonne (Ngāpuhi) is a mentor and trustee with Auckland Teaching Gardens Trust. She supports the community with garden plots, gardening courses and supplying kai to food banks. 

We recorded this interview in her garden in Māngere, surrounded by manu and the local community tending to their plots. 

In this episode she talks to us about her upbringing and how society has changed over her lifetime. She shares the importance of growing a garden, not only for sustainability and kai purposes, but also for learning some of life’s greatest lessons. 

Not everything from yesterday is right. Not everything from yesterday is wrong. You take all the good things with you. Like seeds of knowledge.
