Come and see a thriving urban farm operation in the centre of Christchurch City, where you will find a serious, highly functional, reliable business that is sophisticated, fun, joyful, and producing exceptional quality food offerings and community services.

We begin with a special lunch provided by Can Do Catering – one of the city’s newest catering social enterprises. Then you will tour the space, and you can either choose to soak it in or jump into the mix with the friendly Cultivate farm crew who will find you something hands-on to do that suits you and you best!

Next we walk to the nearby site of the exciting new Otakaro Orchard project which illustrates the next chapter for food resilience in Christchurch. Building on the work of Cultivate and many others, you will hear about their journey to sustain their collective work in the coming decades. Successes, failures, and global best practices.


This is an easy walking tour which takes you to two locations within the central city
