This year in Kaiapoi the 4 September anniversary of
the Canterbury earthquakes is being symbolised in a way which will connect
community in a meaningful way for now and in the future. An invitation is being
extended to the community to the opening and planting day for the Kaiapoi Food
Forest on Saturday 16 September from 10am – 2pm.
A community food forest is one of the green space land
uses identified for the Kaiapoi East Regeneration Area in Waimakariri’s
Recovery Plan. The Plan was approved by the Minister supporting Greater
Christchurch Regeneration in December 2016. Establishing a food forest on
Kaiapoi’s red zone land was a popular request during the community consultation
undertaken by Waimakariri District Council in 2015 and 2016.
“This food forest will be the first of its kind to be
established in the Waimakariri District,” says Al Blackie, chairperson,
Regeneration Steering Group. “It seems very fitting for our community to be
given this opportunity to manage an area of former red zone land and for the
food forest to be the first regeneration project underway for Kaiapoi. The Kaiapoi Food Forest will encourage a lot
of people to visit this area, whether to see what it’s all about, get involved
or just pick an apple.”
The Kaiapoi Food Forest will be managed by a Trust who
will have a Licence to Occupy land with the Waimakariri District Council. The
area of land is approximately 1.5 acres and is bounded by Cass Street, Meadow
Street, Oram Place and a yet to be built new road. The location is near to the
recently reopened St Bartholomew’s Church on Cass Street in Kaiapoi.
The Trust’s values of connecting, nourishing,
educating and inspiring resonate well with people and in a short space of time
they have formed invaluable connections with many local people, community
groups, schools and businesses.

community opening and planting day on Saturday 16 September is available at www.kai.net.nz
