Gardens at sẏd
A taste of real work is sometimes just what a young person needs to make change in their life.
Syd @ the Gardens is one of the Southern Youth Development's cornerstone experiences.
The Trust holds a contract at the Dunedin Botanic Gardens, completing lawn mowing 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 place are the key outcomes for our participants, as well as completing critical work at one of Dunedin's most beautiful attractions.
We appreciate the support of the Dunedin City Council as a key partner with this initiative.
