Friday Night Takeaways

Friday Night Takeaways 

 Fri 11 March:  5-8pm 

Station Square, Newmarket Railway Station

Aucklanders are invited to visit Station Square in Newmarket (cnr Remuera Road and Broadway) on the evening of Friday 11th March to get a takeaway of a different kind - a cutting for their garden or pots from the Suburban Floral Association's collection. The event is part of their 'alternative gardening project', Shopfront and the Letting Space public art programme.

The Suburban Floral Association have been striking cuttings from flowering shrubs encountered on their suburban outings as part of their project. Anyone who visits Shopfront on this evening will be invited to take away a cutting for their own garden from another’s – be it hydrangea, hibiscus, philadelphus, viburnum or buddleia.

Given Newmarket Station is on Shopfront's doorstep, Letting Space and the Association are encouraging the public to take the train to Station Square for Shopfront events. Go to www.maxx.co.nz for train times.
