Willard Home is a perfect spot for everyone who loves a spot of gardening or even soaking up nature’s energy by simply sitting in the garden.

The residents of this Palmerston North home open opened their very own community garden in November 2018.

The garden boasts large lawns, smooth paths for easy access, raised vegetable and flower beds, established trees, a compost system, a children’s garden, a greenhouse for raising seedlings and even a chicken coop shared by the neighbouring school.

Residents enjoy spending time in the garden, picking flowers for the home and harvesting vegetables to eat and gift to the community.
