Kelmarna Community Farm asking for help to survive

From Afternoons, 1:15 pm on 23 May 2024

Central Auckland's Kelmarna Community Farm have been feeding the community and bringing the joy of gardening to urban residents for forty years.

But the 4.5 acre farm is in danger of having to close its gates as their funding system is under immense pressures due in part, to the loss of a major grant it had been receiving for the past 6 years.

Sarah McFadden joins Jesse to talk about their issues and what they're asking the community to do to help them.
