Social capital: Our green spaces enable and promote social connections and community building. Our participatory approach empowers people and enables collective action among groups in society. This approach also supports positive social contacts and the development of support networks.
“[The Green Lab was] an integral part to help with the set-up of Kairos Free Store. They transformed the space to create a sense of community and inclusion. They brought life to an empty space, and in turn have created opportunity for customers to come along, enjoy the space and contribute to the maintenance. I often find volunteers come and help tidy and water the gardens. This in itself has contributed to their belonging and purpose at Kairos. The team were a dream to deal with and so professional. They believed in our kaupapa and helped us achieve the vision of creating an intentional community.”
