Gardens@sẏd is one of the Southern Youth Development's cornerstone experiences.
The tīma at sẏd work in partnership with the Dunedin City Council Gardens team at the Dunedin Botanic Gardens where trainees support the Gardens with lawn mowing, cleaning and hard surface maintenance.
This allows us to provide young people with a first time experience of paid work.
Skill development, work experience and - most importantly - sense of self and connection to the whenua are the key outcomes for our trainees, as well as completing critical work at one of Dunedin's most beautiful attractions.
This programme is limited to a small number of trainees per year. Get in touch with us for more information about how this programme works and how you can get involved.
This programme is only possible because of generous funding from the Dunedin City Council. Whakawhetai ki a koe mo to tautoko.
