Topic: Community Gardens

Topic type:

Christchurch and Canterbury have a strong network of over 30 community gardens as well as other groups promoting food resiliance.

 Most of the gardens are supported by the Canterbury Community Gardens Association with help from the city council under the Community Growing Together, Christchurch City Council  Community Gardens Policy (2013).

More recently networks such as Sustainable Otautahi Christchurch, and groups such as the Christchurch  Food Forest Collective and the Kā-Pūtahi Community Orchard have begun operating.

In 2014 the council adopted the Christchurch City Council Food resiliance Policy to support these initiatives.
