2023/2024 Waitematā Local Grants, Round One

LG2420-132

Action Education Incorporated

 

Legal status:

Incorporated Society, Charitable Trust

Activity focus:

Arts and culture

Project: Spoken Word Activation Workshops Empowering Young People using the Arts

Location:

Ngā Puna o Waiōrea - Western Springs College

Summary:

We are requesting funding towards x 20 Spoken Word Workshops for young people within high schools in the local board area (schools listed in ‘Project Location).
Using feedback from young people, we have honed and refined our spoken word workshops to:
1.         Introduce participants to spoken word poetry, supporting their writing and literacy skills
2.         Introduce young people to a creative, affordable, relevant and accessible medium for self-expression
3.         Build confidence and self-esteem while connecting with their collective and individual identities.
We provide these workshops, free of charge and we distribute alongside them our “Spoken Word Guidelines” resource for educators. http://www.actioneducation.co.nz/resources.html.

Expertise:

Action Education is recognised as a leading Youth Development organisation who successfully use creative methods to engage and support diverse groups of young people to explore and strengthen their individual and collective identities. 
With over 30 years’ experience, we have honed our programmes to inspire, grow, and connect our current and future leaders. On average our programmes receive an overall positive evaluation rating of 92%.
In a recent external survey of Action Education programmes (2022) 91% of survey respondents reported that their involvement in the programme had a positive impact on their overall well-being, increasing their confidence around public speaking, and their confidence around writing to express themselves.

Dates:

06/11/2023 - 31/07/2024

People reached:

400-600

% of participants from Local Board

100%

Promotion:

We will promote the workshops through our relationships with schools and coordinate full attendance – around 20 participants per workshop.
We will publicly acknowledge the local board through our Facebook Page, at the Workshop, in our Annual Report and Annual Accounts.

 

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

The Youth Development Strategy Aotearoa says ‘Youth Development is triggered when young people fully participate and that young people need to be given opportunities to have greater control over what happens to them, through seeking their advice, participation and engagement’. Spoken Word Poetry is an art form that’s increasingly recognised as an effective vehicle for young people to understand, who they are in the context of where they are, what healthy relationships look like and how they can be enhanced through using tools such as active listening, communication, authentic expression, empathy and understanding.
Arts continue to emerge as a medium for young people to engage and connect with their peers, feelings and emotions.
In recent survey by CNZ it was found that kiwis believe arts have wide-ranging benefits. The majority feel participating in art activities makes them more confident (67%), helps them to feel good about life in general (62%), and helps them to make friends (58%). 
The workshops often act as a catalyst for young people to start their journey within a thriving youth poetry environment where diversity is embraced, critical thinking is encouraged and young people are actively involved in their own development.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

 

 Waitematā

·     Provide opportunities to connect communities, through creative and diverse arts, sports, events, and community activities

By holding the workshops we are enabled to support and connect communities in an inclusive environment where diversity is fostered and can bloom, where young people can create and connect and are encouraged to speak their truth while being cheered on by their peers. There is nothing more powerful than knowing you are not alone and that you are celebrated for who you are. These are the environments these workshops curate for our young people.

Demographics

Māori outcomes:

·     Māori led - either a Māori organisation that is applying or Māori directed (came about as a request from Māori), Māori involvement in the design/concept, Māori focus - tikanga (practices), mātauranga (knowledge), reo (language), Māori participation - Māori priority group, target group, high representation or Māori staff delivering

All of our staff and volunteers are trained in the Treaty of Waitangi and Maori models of Health such as Te Whare Tapa Wha, Tuakana/Teina and the Takarangi Cultural Competency Framework.
We have high representation of Maori, Pasifika and People of Colour within our core staff, volunteers, community supporters and communities that we serve, who guide our mahi.
We use Karakia, Waiata, Whakatauki, Poroporoaki and Powhiri within our programmes where appropriate. We hold core values such as Aroha, manaakitanga and kotahitanga throughout all of our programmes.
Fundamentally we acknowledge that peoples, such as Maori are taonga who need safe, supportive and positive spaces where they are celebrated, uplifted and; can build, reflect on, and grow their own aspirations.

Accessible to people with disabilities

Yes - Our work is mainly held at secondary schools and community centres which are all well equipped to provide access for those with physical disabilities. Upon entry into our programmes, we take into account the unique needs of each individual so that we can ensure they are comfortable and can fully participate.

Healthy environment approach:

Promote smoke-free messages

We have a smoke free policy's in place at our workspace, and our work mostly takes place in smoke free environments such as community centres and schools. All of our youth development workers are trained to be able to offer support in smoking cessation.

 

 

Does your project support any genders, ages or ethnicities specifically?

Our workshops attract and support an incredibly diverse range of participants in terms of gender, ethnicity, culture, faith, world view, sexuality and, socio-economic backgrounds. We know from experience that it is through shared stories our programmes can break down stereotypes and give young people a craft to express their voice. We support an inclusive environment where diversity is fostered and can bloom.

Additional information to support the application:

A Volunteer Training had been organized by the Auckland Seniors Support and Caring Group (ASSCG) in collaboration with the Chinese Action Network - Bridging Trust (CAN-B Trust) in October 2022. It received unanimous praise from the participants. Based on the feedback received, it was evident that everyone gained a preliminary knowledge of New Zealand's volunteer culture. They learned about the organization system and services of New Zealand Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB). However, participants also realized that the training was just the first step towards becoming a competent volunteer.

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

1026 Year 13 students who receive the Street Smart Handbook in schools in the Waitemata Local Board will have:
 • A resource which has been developed through listening to what young people tell us they want to support them in this key transitionary time of leaving school.
• Access to key accurate life skills information not contained in the NZ Curriculum, and not misinformation obtained through social media and peers.
• A printed resource, which they, and other members of their family can readily access, as opposed to information only accessible on the internet which is not available to all.
• Contacts and referral details for key Government agencies and community services to support them both now in this time and into the uncertain future in both phone, text, and email.
• Tertiary training and career planning information
• An opportunity to make positive connections with their local Police.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

 

 Waitematā

·     Empower our communities to become resilient

Blue Light’s Street Smart Handbook has listened to young people’s needs and supports 1026 Year 13 secondary school students in the Waitemata Local Board area to make informed and accurate decisions to support their positive well-being and self-development at a key transition time – that of leaving school. Street Smart:
• Covers a huge range of accurate information on issues affecting young people from mental health, drugs, through to vaping and alcohol.
• Focuses on important life skills such as tenancy agreements, driver licensing, budgeting,
and credit.
• Provides upskilling opportunities, volunteering ideas, tertiary training, career services and support
• Contains information not within the NZ Curriculum
• Has contact details for key government and service agencies in their community including phone numbers, text, and email addresses.
The benefits of the Street Smart Handbook for young people are:
• It’s accessible for all young people through its hard copy format delivered to schools as opposed to online which is not.
• Targeted at Year 12/13 students in secondary schools throughout NZ to affected by
inequalities acerbated by the rising cost of living.
• Delivered into schools through Blue Light’s 78 strong branch network creating opportunities for positive police connections
• Delivers up to date accurate information on issues and subjects as opposed to misinformation sourced from social media or from peers.

Demographics

Māori outcomes:

·     Māori participation - Māori priority group, target group, high representation or Māori staff delivering

Maori are a key target audience for the Street Smart Handbook due to:
o Impacts of COVID and cost of living crisis disproportionately affecting Maori.
o Rangatahi Maori lack of access to devices, data or internet.
o Rangatahi Māori, are more likely to not be in employment or training post-secondary education.
o Rangatahi Maori face pressure to leave school, take up employment or provide care for whanau.
Blue Light's Street Smart provides:
- a printed resource, removing the technology barriers
- trusted information on a range of issues affecting both Rangatahi Maori and whanau.
- a support to the engagement of Rangatahi Maori in schooling - information/contact details about groups working with Maori in their community to support them

Accessible to people with disabilities

Yes - Blue Light through providing the Street Smart Handbook online, as well as in a printed format, enables youth experiencing disability choice and flexibility in how they prefer to access the information provided. Blue Light's online version will be formatted so that text to
speech applications can be utilised by and for youth who prefer to have the material spoken to them

Healthy environment approach:

Promote smoke-free messages, Healthy options for food and drink, including water as the first choice, Encouraging active lifestyles including movement or fitness programmes

Street Smart's provides information to young people on how to make informed choices to enhance their positive well-being and self-development and contains sections on Healthy bodies, including information on the dangers of smoking and vaping and how to quit. This section also contains information on healthy eating and eating disorders. It has links and contacts to agencies who can help support youth, their families and community members if they experience mental illness and if they need support or questions around healthy and sustainable lifestyle choices

 

 

Does your project support any genders, ages or ethnicities specifically?

Blue Light is a youth focussed organisation and Street Smart has been designed to support young people aged between 16-19 as they transition from secondary school into employment, leaving home, entering into training or tertiary education.
While no specific gender diverse groups have been targeted, nor are they excluded. Over 100,000 young people participate in Blue Light's programmes and activities annually making diversity and inclusion practices a priority. Our work-place policy and procedures
reflect our commitment to diversity and inclusion.

 

Financial information

Amount requested:

$3591.00

Requesting grant for:

Printing costs for Street Smart Handbooks to be distributed to 1026 Year 13 students in Waitemata Local Board secondary schools only

If part funded, how would you make up the difference:

Street Smart is funded on a school by school basis through different community funding groups so our project will so go ahead elsewhere but if funding reduced or no funding received from the Waitemata Local Board then fewer or no Street Smart copies will be
printed for students in the Waitemata area.

2023/2024 Waitematā Local Grants, Round One

LG2420-108

Charlotte Museum Trust

 

Legal status:

Charitable Trust

Activity focus:

Community

Project: Event Activity Programming

Location:

1a Howe Street Freemans Bay

Summary:

We require funding to establish and run a programme of events and activities at the museum. These would include exhibits/events/activities and workshops that support and encourage our diverse Rainbow Communities to proactively engage with each other, including cross generationally and intersectionally in a safe inclusive space. We hope to create a busy active community space that encourages engagement and participation by our communities and is supporting our artists, creative community and those researching/studying topics in LGBTIQ+ topics.

Expertise:

Up until covid-19 we ran a programme of workshops and activities. In the last few years we have held exhibits and been involved in activities and events on a regular basis. This has included exhibits, film screening and pop up museums for Auckland Pride Festival, exhibits and history talks for the Auckland Heritage Festival, making history zines for the Auckland Zinefest, and having a regular rooster of exhibits at the museum.

Dates:

01/11/2023 - 31/10/2024

People reached:

1200

% of participants from Local Board

75%

Promotion:

We will market and promote all our events and activities through our newsletter, website, social media and network with other Rainbow organisations to promote all our events and activities. Being apart of festivals run by other organisations also enables us to use their marketing channels.  We will acknowledge the boards contribution by putting the logo and a written acknowledgement on any printed materials and online via social media and our website and include in the marketing of events.

 

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

Each activity event and/or workshop will be planned for and marketed to our wider communities to encourage an inclusive and diverse audience to participate. We will also reflect this diversity in the facilitators, artists, creatives and researchers involved in our programming. This will ensure that we are reaching out beyond our current audience and engage/support participation and engagement by wider communities, especially those who have not engaged with us before.
This will benefit our communities by encouraging them to use a safe and inclusive space.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

 

 Waitematā

·     Provide accessible and inclusive opportunities and services that meet the needs of our diverse communities

As one of the very few rainbow spaces that is not a bar or nightclub nor have a 'party' focus or entertainment venue we have a unique opportunity. We will be able to offer a variety of events and activities reflecting our diversity and that create opportunities for our diverse communities to be engaged with positive identity affirming content in safe and inclusive space. We know that Rainbow Communities are disproportionately represented in the impact from COVID-19 - especially in areas like mental wellness and feelings of isolation and lack of connection or sense of belonging. And this is exasperated by the going issues faced by our communities such as minority stress, stigma, discrimination and homophobia. Our communities need spaces that encourage connections and interaction with each other and that can foster a sense of community lacking elsewhere and in other aspects of our lives.

Demographics

Māori outcomes:

·     Māori participation - Māori priority group, target group, high representation or Māori staff delivering

We plan to increase participation of takatāpui by providing space for takatāpui artists, creatives, facilitators and researchers to run activities/events and to directly provide input and feedback on our programming at the planning stage. It is essential we do not assume or anticipate what takatāpui community wants and that we do not put undue pressure on takatāpui staff to be 'the voice' for a much wider, diverse community.

Accessible to people with disabilities

Yes - We are in the process of building wheelchair accessibility at our new premises and have already added such things as hand rails for safer use.

Healthy environment approach:

Promote smoke-free messages, Healthy options for food and drink, including water as the first choice

The museum is a smoke and vap free environment even in our outside spaces. We provide non-alcoholic drinks when we host events/activities. When we host we provide non alcoholic beverages such as tea coffee water juice etc and snacks like biscuts, chips and vegan and GF options.

 

 

Does your project support any genders, ages or ethnicities specifically?

No - we intend to provide a varied programme that will engage and support inter-generational and inter-sectional connectivity. 
 
The programme will be inclusive but targeted towards rainbow communities.

 

Financial information

Amount requested:

$4924.00

Requesting grant for:

We are requesting funding to cover the costs that the museum will incur to run this programme - the increase in utilities for being open extra hours; the sundries for hosting such as tea coffee toilet paper and hand towels; for marketing/printing costs to promote; materials needed for creative activities and workshops and for the purchase of specific equipment like chairs and tables that will enable use to host.

If part funded, how would you make up the difference:

Yes - we will amend our plan to fit in with whatever the funding outcome will be. For example we will be putting on an exhibit for the Auckland Pride Festival but how this will be done and what activities we run as part of pride is dependent on the funding.

Community Groups Feeding the Homeless Incorporated

 

Legal status:

Incorporated Society

Activity focus:

Community

Project: City centre community fridge

Location:

139 Greys Ave, Auckland Central

Summary:

The project is a community fridge in the city centre to provide food for homeless people and others in need. The fridge will be located at 139 Greys Ave in the ground floor corridor of the Kāinga Ora building, alongside a Pātaka Kai. It will be a place where people can leave food that they do not need and those who need food will be able to access it. The fridge is intended to continue in place for many years, as long as it is needed.

Expertise:

Community Groups Feeding the Homeless volunteers were very involved with the community fridge that Love Food Hate Waste / Auckland Council set up in Griffiths Garden and which ran for 3 years until October 2019. Our members were on the roster to clean and stock the fridge and some of us did this on a daily basis. We have been supporting groups that feed homeless people in Auckland for 5 years, including Sunday Blessings in Waitematā and Waka of Caring in Manurewa. Auckland Council has for 18 months funded a coordinator supported by our group and reporting to both CGFH and Auckland Council. The coordinator is a member of the CGFH committee.

We will write a thank you letter to the local board and include a notice on the fridge to say that funding from the local board has enabled the fridge to be funded.

 

 

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

Vulnerable people in the city centre will be able to freely access food without having to prove their eligibility or need. They will be able to take what they need at any time the fridge can be accessed. People who have food suitable for the community fridge that they do not need will be able to place it in the fridge instead of throwing it away. City centre cafes, restaurants and food outlets will be able to send their leftover food to the community fridge, so that it is not wasted. Organisations that have excess food after their events will be able to deliver this food to the community fridge. People who cannot provide enough food for themselves and their whanau will have a source of food that is easily accessible.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

 

 Waitematā

·     Provide accessible and inclusive opportunities and services that meet the needs of our diverse communities

Summary:

Vibrancy and excitement a Christmas to remember in our local hood brining together the distinct villages of Grey Lynn and the businesses precincts to become unified and cohesive underpinning our drive for increased membership while concurrently increasing the recognition of Grey Lynn as a distinct business district within the City Fringe.  Our objective is to delineate the area by lighting selective trees marking the area; running a high profile celebration of Christmas windows and lights within the Grey Lynn area through  reward and recognition.  Reward emerges through substantial prizes for the best Window decorations/lights in businesses and value add/engagement through recognition that the Business Association can do so much more for the area if we collaborate

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

Grey Lynn is a distinctive are with a very diverse heart.  This project is about linking the community up and creating a sense of engagement and distinct spectacular which will become part of the Grey Lynn fabric.  Member of the community already decorate houses this is about really growing a business's support engagement strategy right throughout the community.  Starting with the retail premises first we think we can build a challenge between our distant villages and villages and precincts.
the proposed rainbow seat and lighting up of the trees is about celebrating the diversity and inclusion - the trees designate the area.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

 

 Waitematā

·     Increase prosperity and resiliency of locally owned businesses

Grey Lynn has massive potential whether it be in the creative community, natural health and raw foods space; environmental sustainability; digital design but is hampered because of a lack of cohesiveness and identify.  This project is designed to unite the disparate interests of precincts and villages together by lighting key trees which will ultimately delineate the Grey Lynn business precinct area.  Our vision is of a massive display of lights and designs where every business can promote visually its goods services and product offerings in the context of a Christmas theme. The visual aesthetics of the event is designed to bring Aucklanders to Grey Lynn acting as a magnet much the way Franklin Road use to do.  It's about colouring, orchestrating and generating excitement and engagement. Its also about celebrating the diversity of the area with the intention of  formally uncovering a rainbow seat which has been approved by AT as painted in the rainbow colours.
 
Encouraging the participation of businesses to decorate their premises requires more than just a conversation - there needs to be a catalyst. In this present environment we need to capture their imagination and convey to them quickly the value add of our proposal. In our view this is best achieve achieved  through incentivisation to participate.  we would do this through increasing membership growth.  The incentives or prizes would only be available to members of the Association. Hopefully this will trigger other businesses to engage and participate through recognition and reward.
 
The vision is to light up the villages of Grey Lynn and reward the best lighting display through a Celebrity and people's choice. these two prizes would be financed by the GLBA and envisaged to be substantive such as a night at the Zoo or dinner for the team - again the prize money would be reinvested in the businesses of GL. Financial resilience for our businesses would be delivered via: competition village/precinct against another village/precinct based around the lighting theme developed with the trees; a sense that the vibrancy of Grey Lynn will change if businesses collaborate and work as part of the business association; businesses will understand the direct benefit to them of working collaboratively  - it is considered to be the most tangible evidence we can give them of the possibilities associated with a much stronger business association - the strong signal will be around the power of Grey Lynn working together.

Activity focus:

Environment

Project: Modelling regenerative egg production at Kelmarna v.2.0

Location:

Kelmarna Community Farm, 12 Hukanui Cresent, Ponsonby

Summary:

Our layer hen project, version 2.0 aims to build a truly regenerative, low-carbon model for egg production,. It will be developed in partnership with our community through a CSA retail model, in which members invest in the project for a season, in exchange for a weekly share of eggs. 
 
The project will utilise waste products from local industry, insects and perennial plants grown on-site to reduce the proportion of industrial feed grain required. 
 
We will gather data throughout the project to measure the reduction of carbon emissions with our regenerative model, and test viability of the project to be profitable mini-enterprise. In the future we aim to share learnings with other organisations to explore open sourcing our successful methods.

Expertise:

We have experience running CSA’s. Specifically, we have been operating a Market Garden CSA scheme with 20 customers receiving a weekly veg box currently. We also have Soil Factory, our community compost service where we compost for over 100 local residents under a model very similar to CSAs. 
 
Kelmarna employee Sarah Moss-Baker has been managing the project since March. She analysed key learnings from the previous version of the project, and designed this new version 2.0. She has worked with chickens in previous workplaces, and due to being part of the Kelmarna team in another role as Market Garden Manager has been familiar with the initial development of the layer hen project since our Paddock Development implementation in 2021.

Training and capability building for volunteers - 25 hen helper volunteers will tend the hens, learning more about regenerative egg and hen farming.
 
Local economy - creating a local supply of eggs keeps money circulating in our community and creates an additional part-time role for a beginning hen farmer.
 
Community engagement with food production - the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model allows community members to deepen their understanding of a sustainable egg production model and seasonality of supply.
 
Education - Kelmarna’s existing programmes of education and community engagement will leverage the project as another avenue for engagement and education about regenerative, low-carbon egg production, seasonal, local food supply and how our model is different from the standard, carbon-intensive models.
 
Community resilience - growing food locally with short supply chains builds our local resilience, in the face of future global shocks.
 
Strengthens and complements Kelmarna's other activities - links with our regenerative paddock management plans and our aims to showcase diverse methods of regenerative farming in the city.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

 

 Waitematā

·     Support Waitematā being a low carbon community

Our aim is to develop towards a truly regenerative, low-carbon model for localised egg production under a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) scheme. 
 
We will test and model using more closed-loop and locally sourced feed options, reducing the need for industrial chicken feed grown and transported in from elsewhere.
 
It will be partially financed via sales of the eggs - primarily through a CSA scheme, where our local community will make up-front seasonal payments for a regular supply of eggs. 
 
The scale of the project (54 hens initially) will enable more volunteers and members of our local Waitemāta community to participate, gaining knowledge of regenerative, low-carbon farming systems and sustainable agriculture. The project will also raise awareness of, and increase access to regeneratively farmed eggs. 
 The development of this project will open up a plethora of diverse educational opportunities for schools, community groups and volunteers to engage with regenerative agriculture and food sovereignty. This could also provide a gateway into engaging with other regenerative projects we run across Kelmarna Gardens. 
 
Our project contributes to a low-carbon community through three major aspects outlined in more detail below: 
 
1) Local and closed-loop feed sources:
 
The biggest carbon set-back with any commercial egg production operation is feed supply. Current conventional egg production is completely dependent on a high-input system of grain imported from off-farm sources, often from overseas. Industrially-grown commodity grain has substantial damaging climate impacts, ranging from heavy fossil fuel usage, to soil carbon loss from tillage and pesticide use, to international transportation. 
Our chicken operation has the explicit purpose of developing and refining systems to source nutritious chicken feed in sustainable, low-carbon, waste-reducing ways, and to share knowledge about this model as we develop it. 
 
We have identified there is an opportunity within cities, where food ‘waste’ is abundant, to utilise this resource. Our model will reduce the need for industrial chicken feed grown and transported in from elsewhere by between 25-50%, thereby minimising the amount of carbon emissions generated in our operations from feed supply.  
 
We will test and model using more closed-loop and locally sourced feed options, including:
Okara recovered from Chalmers Organics tofu processing
Grain recovered from local organics stores + Serious Popcorn
Fish heads + frames from Kai Ika
Whey recovered from Jersey Girl Organics milk processing
Black Soldier fly larvae grown onsite by Common Knowledge Insect project
 
We will also utilise the continuous access to green plants at Kelmarna within the paddocks and silvopasture areas on the farm.
 
2) Community Supported Agriculture & Farm Shop sales:
 
We will establish a CSA model for most of our egg sales, enabling our local community to secure a supply of fresh local eggs in exchange for paying a seasonal subscription. We will sell any additional eggs through our existing farm shop. Direct-to-consumer sales models like these improve transparency and trust in the food system, and are also known to reduce trading-related greenhouse gas emissions from transport, storage, display, and packaging of produce. After 1 year we expect the project to cover its own costs and create an ongoing supply of low-carbon eggs for the Waitemāta community to access. 
 
3) Knowledge sharing:
 
During this grant-funded period the development and key educational metrics of the project will be shared with our community in diverse ways. Kelmarna’s existing programmes of education and community engagement will be the platforms for this. For example school group visits, volunteers, therapeutic gardeners and event visitors will gain opportunities to learn about regenerative, low-carbon egg production, seasonal, local food supply and how our model is different from the standard, carbon-intensive models.
We have begun (and will continue) networking with other aspiring poultry farmers and regenerative community farmers/projects/marae in Auckland to assess interest in sharing the model more widely and better understand the needs of other projects. 
Looking ahead to years 2 and 3 of the project (ie beyond this grant funded period), we see the potential for our regenerative egg production system to provide a teaching model for aspiring small-scale farmers to participate in, learn from, and apply to their local communities elsewhere, much like our vegetable growing operation has done over many years. 
 
We are collaborating with Go Well Consulting to utilise their expertise in mapping the carbon footprint of specific activities. We will apply their methodology to our egg production systems to enable us to measure the carbon footprint of our eggs. They will provide us with a report detailing the volume of greenhouse gases (CO2-e) a single egg produced at Kelmarna is responsible for emitting, and a methodology for tracking how our emissions are reduced with different feed inputs over time. This information will be particularly useful when communicating the impact of our operations and sharing knowledge about low-carbon food production models to our wider community and beyond.

Demographics

Māori outcomes:

·     No Māori outcomes identified

 

Accessible to people with disabilities

Yes - Kelmarna is a long-established centre for therapeutic gardening, which we provide for
people with identified mental health or intellectual disability needs. As a result, we are very
experienced in supporting people with intellectual disabilities to participate in our activities.
 
Our project will also be accessible to many people with physical disabilities. As a farm
site, there are parts of the site that are not accessible to people with all types of physical
disabilities (for example wheelchair users would not be able to access all areas of the site).
 
However, we are committed to working with individuals to enable participation wherever
we can, suited to their individual needs. Physical disability should prove no barrier to
participating as a CSA member, Farm Shop customer or hen helper volunteer.

Healthy environment approach:

Promote smoke-free messages, Include waste minimisation (zero waste) messages, Healthy options for food and drink, including water as the first choice, Encouraging active lifestyles including movement or fitness programmes, Encourage the reduction of carbon emissions or increase community resilience to the impacts of climate change*

Smoke-free: 
Kelmarna is a smoke-free site at all times. 
 
Encouraging active lifestyles:  Participating with agriculture and gardening is an active experience, using all parts of our bodies, and is proven to have significant health benefits (both physical and mental).
 
Waste minimisation:
By using waste products from other industries (fish, tofu and grains/pulses etc) for chicken feed, as well as plant greens and insect protein from onsite at Kelmarna the project will be reducing waste and sharing these solutions with our community.
All packaging for the eggs will be reused and egg boxes when no longer fit for purpose can be composted onsite.
Within our organisation more widely we teach and share information about a host of waste minimisation methods - including composting, worm farming and bokashi use. We train our volunteers in these techniques and systems, so that they can put them into practice at home, and create a culture of resourcefulness and low-waste living.
 
Encourage the reduction of carbon emissions or increase community resilience to the impacts of climate change: 
Reduction of carbon emissions is the central focus of our project achieved by utilising waste products for feed supply and then reducing the need for industrial grains grown elsewhere.
Emissions are also reduced by producing eggs so close to where our people live and eat, removing almost all transport and refrigeration emissions.
Our CSA and onsite Farm Shop provide direct-to-consumer retail outlets (as an alternative to supermarkets), which can support further education and behaviour change towards dietary and purchasing choices that create fewer greenhouse gas emissions. 
Additionally, Kelmarna more broadly has a strong track record of seeing people who have engaged with our work encouraged towards more sustainable, low-carbon lifestyles. 
In October ‘23 we are rebranding our organisation and updating our website (funded by AC climate grant) to improve access to and understanding of our work. This will enable us to reach a wider audience and share more information about regenerative urban farming as a community-based solution for mitigating climate change.
 
Healthy options for food and drink:
Eggs are a healthy, nutritious food source, which should be eaten as part of a balanced diet. They provide a good vegetarian protein source. 
Alongside the egg production, Kelmarna grows seasonal vegetables and fruit. These are also retailed via a CSA scheme and our Farm Shop, and form a key part of our work in educating the community about healthy, mainly plant-based diets.

Requesting grant for:

This version 2.0 of the Layer Hen Project draws on learnings from a preliminary crowdfunded project with 30 hens in 2022 (more info in attached Strategic Plan). We have designed version 2.0 to resolve the initial challenges, giving a greater chance of success. 
Funding enables us to expand to a viable scale, with contributions towards a paid coordinator role, training, and a proportion of feed and equipment costs. We see this as a great opportunity to invest in scaling and developing the project in a robust and sustainable way, delivering community action on climate change for years to come.

If part funded, how would you make up the difference:

We could get by with $7,759 of funding by sacrificing the cost of training, and some time in the establishment phase of the project.

Cost of participation:

There will be a cost to buy eggs in the CSA and Farm Shop in order to contribute to the longevity and viability of the project. Eggs will be priced to reflect market rates for organic eggs. However, there are no costs for volunteers to participate. Our volunteering programme is easily accessible with few regulatory or commitment barriers. General public/visitors can also see the project in action because Kelmarna is free to access 7 days per week for general visits.

.It was so beautiful to see Comet coming out of the car, say hello to so reassuring to know that he knows exactly why he is there. I was really impressed today at how quick both of them got the hang of each other.  Comet was tuned in and doing exactly what he needed to do with the harness. 
Working with the wheelchair was a bit more challenging as they were both learning to measure each other.  Colleen is such an inspiration. As I said, a real privilege to be able to help her gain even more independence.

Project: SEVEN WONDERS

Location:

Toi Ora,  6 Putiki Street, Grey Lynn, Auckland 1021

Summary:

Summer Community Arts Project with Toi Ora/Nightsong. Entitled SEVEN WONDERS - led by leading arts professionals - working in a collaborative/resilience building-style to explore storytelling/theatrical form with members of the Mental Health Community, It will also deliver dedicated mentoring/professional development support for the new drama tutor, Ricky Didham, at Toi Ora. Traditionally Toi Ora has stopped providing services over the summer break. Mental health is not something that takes a holiday - so Nightsong is working with Toi Ora to bring a new and dynamic proposition to the 'business as usual' calendar. With the view of legacy in future years (either directly with Nightsong or other partners). All the expert artistic team share alignment with the kaupapa of community building.

Expertise:

Nightsong has led/partnered on a number of successful community projects. These include various collaborations with Mixit (refugee Arts Project), Project Lightbulb (3 project residencies in lower decile schools - including Tangaroa and Otahuhu Colleges), Korowai Manaaki (Youth Justice - Wiri) ,The Depot Artspace, Young and Hungry, a collaboration between ATC, Marvellous Theatre Group (elderly community) and Pt Chevalier Primary and also as workshop leaders in various education spheres. Additionally many of the team have their own expertise - such as Virginia Frankovich (co-lead) who is not only a very talented maker - but is currently completing her MA in Creative Arts Therapy and Community Arts Facilitation (CAT) at Whitecliffe.

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

Challenges with mental health are common. Trends indicate it is on the rise and effecting more and more people. There has also been an escalation in demand for mental health services post covid. The programme is designed to allow each participant to be a valued collaborator - contributing at their own capacity. The project's provocation is developing ideas about things the individuals already draw positivity from. We look to amplify this in a group setting. The value of arts in this area are proven. Self esteem will be built as well as resilience. Though the process of creating a shared experience over time is the primary driver - we will share the work to whānau and a supportive audience to build a kaupapa of achievement, self-worth and pride. The outcomes will benefit the community involved, but also lead to a growth and revitalisation of Toi Ora's drama programme,. The project is designed for legacy and expansion of services in the longer term.

 Waitematā

·     Provide accessible and inclusive opportunities and services that meet the needs of our diverse communities

Toi Ora is an award-winning community arts trust providing a creative space and learning opportunities for people using mental health services and residents in the Auckland District Health Board areā and is based in the heart of the Waitemata Local Board area, Over the past couple of years Nightsong (also based in the Waitemata Local Board area) has been partnering in developing/strengthening their performance arts offerings with theatre to support vulnerable NZ'ers participation in the arts with experienced artists and mentors. Nightsong has held short workshops & consulted with the team. We were set to run a more extensive summer workshop at the start of 2022, but this was cancelled due to COVID.  The plans have continued to develop & it has been decided to give focus to a larger scale summer project. In part due to the fact Toi Ora’s offering currently only aligns with term times – which means the mental health community who use Toi Ora as a support have a hiatus over the Christmas/Summer period. However there are also great advantages, such as having the run of the building, great support from
