The first of our Creative Summit discussions, will focus on this special piece of land, its past, present and future. Te Rito Gardens provides opportunity for people to learn the “life skills of growing food and acquiring an income in a sustainable ways”. It is an outstanding example of successful, innovative community practice, and is surrounded by other community and health organisations. An important site for Ngati Toa, the iwi have recently had this land returned to them under the Waitangi Tribunal and are currently in discussion with a property developer for its development. From so-called ‘lunatic asylum’ to psychiatric hospital, Porirua Hospital has had a deep impression on Porirua and the way we consider the value of people.
