Welcome to Wild Medicine

Here at Ridge Road Gardens our family, Rob, Kristie, Moss and Fenn are creating a place where people can come virtually or in real life and learn how to be healthy in mind, body and soul.

Wild Medicine to us, embodies living a life less ordinary and living on purpose.
We live on an amazing property and we want to share it with you. As we transform it we will teach others how to live in a sustainable fun way.

We host open days and run workshops on many different ways to bring goodness into your lives. All of these are run with a strong community focus.

If you would like to stay in the magic for longer, book a couple of nights at our beautiful glamping bus.

You can join a workshop or stroll the renowned Iris gardens, ponds or baby Native plantings and spend time with some lovely animals.

Ridge Road gardens is only open for workshops and dated Open Days

We look forward to meeting you or seeing you again!

To get you started on the path to goodness we have our free NZ specific Vegetable Planting Guide right Here!
