Christchurch South Community Gardens
Situated at 188 Strickland Street , Sydenham , the gardens have developed since 1999 into a multi-purpose community resource. Feel free to drop in at any time to look around and see what is going on. There are many opportunities for participating – contact us for more information. Christchurch South Community Gardens are operated by the Christchurch South Community Gardens Trust. Haere mai.
We had a great time meeting locals and visitors at the gardens at Winter Matariki (harvest) day.
If you are interested in volunteering, gardening, composting, sustainability, transition initiatives, doing research, or working on a trust or simply meeting new people, then drop in or contact us.
We have regular gardening activities at 188 Strickland Street. Tuesday Thursday, Wednesday Saturday 10-2pm
The garden runs 3-4 market days each year to promote the range of plants and produce available, and to get to know the community. There are always tasty garden treats and the ever popular lucky visitor pickle basket prize!
The Gardens produce a quarterly newsletter which is available by email. Send us your email address and we’ll add you to our circulation list.
