"Garden for Wellbeing" St Heliers
The first 'Gifted Garden' which started the movement. Garden owner and designer, Panda Warren of Pandeia Te Taiao began this garden's journey in 2006 with a passion to blend wildlife, food and wildlife habitat. In 2020, the garden began to host 'Garden for Wellbeing' workshops in partnership with Olivia from Lush Greenery Gardens.
Gift-the-Garden began in 2021 in response to requests to help replicate principles and features from this garden.
On a south sloping quarter acre section, Garden for Wellbeing has been designed to capture water, grow soil and provide as much habitat as possible. The heart of the garden is a copper water feature where the birds gather each evening to bathe before they systematically remove 'pests' from every leaf in the garden.
