Weeding small gardens
After the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011, large portions of Kaiapoi land were purchased by the government. This land is being given back to the community for it to develop into amenities.
Ones of the most popular ideas the community wanted was a food forest.
The Waimakariri District Council invited Brent & Shirley Cairns to head the food forest project.
Their vision is to provide food for the community a place of learning and a place for people to come and gather and enjoy the food.

A community food forest provides an abundance of food for residents and those that wish to visit to gather – fruits, vegetables, herbs and medicinal plants by way of a layered permaculture companion planting system.
Imagine wandering through a flourishing forest where almost every plant is edible and all plants serve a purpose.
The Waimakariri District Council is going to lease 1.5acres of land to the Kaiapoi Food Forest Trust to develop a food forest.
A food forest functions as a healthy closed-loop ecosystem, with each organism playing a role. Each element of the system supports the whole. The many relationships happening in an ecosystem are imitated in a food forest which:
• builds soil and accumulates nutrients
• self-fertilizes, self-mulches, self-regulates
• produces food, fiber, medicine, materials, fodder and more
• Sequesters Carbon, offsetting climate change
• provides habitat for all living organisms
• supports pollinators and beneficial insects
• protects and enhances biodiversity
We want volunteers…if you would like to help please give us a call… or visit during our volunteer days which is most Wednesdays from 4pm till around 6pm
Serving a community on its doorstep is at the heart of what Gulliver & Tyler and the McKinnon Funeral Group stand for. Wendi Keown is a Kaiapoi resident; She and her team at Gulliver & Tyler and Flaxton Park, look forward to being of service to the Kaiapoi community.
