Welcome to the Christchurch South Community Gardens
Situated at 188 Strickland Street, Sydenham, the gardens have developed since 1999 on a CCC site into a multi-purpose community resource thanks to the generosity of Christchurch South Community Gardens Trust board and staff, local residents, CCC, funders and volunteers.
Our goals are:
- to grow food together as a community
- to beautify and to improve the environment
- to increase our gardening knowledge with a cooperative setting.
There are many opportunities for participating. We can offer:
- Work experience for a wide range of social service clients
- Workshops on home composting, pickling, preserving, general horticulture, seed saving, garden craft
- Opportunities to participate in community events
- Opportunities to become involved in the Christchurch South Community Gardens Trust Board
- Programmes for school groups
- Speakers and tours for garden groups/clubs
- Research opportunities for students
- NCEA Unit Standard Assessments
- Plants and fresh produce at low/no cost to the community
- A friend environment to share and to learn.
