Come along and see a Social Enterprise at work.  Steve will show you around the fully functional large scale community nursery. He will share his 25 years at Trees for Canterbury, and you can meet the people, feel the passion and hear the “legends” of where they began and what they have accomplished.

After Trees For Canterbury you will be personally guided via shuttle thru the ‘Red Zone’ and to the historic grounds of Avebury Park and the Richmond Community Gardens. This is a social enterprise regenerating a small part of the ‘Red Zone’, showcasing what can be achieved by the community without heavy reliance on external funding sources.  Your tour of the garden is followed by an afternoon tea in Avebury House to discuss how Avebury has always operated within the social enterprise model.

**Sturdy flat footwear to get you over the bumps and keep your feet dry in the puddles are essential**
