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.

The National Scout Museum is in the Conference Wing of the building complex at the “Blue Skies” Conference and Training Centre in Kaiapoi – North Canterbury.
It has a permanent display detailing the history of Scouting in New Zealand starting from Baden Powell’s story and his founding of the movement, before covering the origins of Scouting in New Zealand. Kaiapoi features strongly in the New Zealand history of Scouting being where the first Scout Patrol is reputed to have been formed and early camps were held at Woodend where today a memorial cairn is located. There were many unique aspects that were introduced by Col D.Cossgrove (the first Dominion Chief Scout) who taught at the school in Tuahiwi, such as Peace Scouts, Bull Pups, and Empire Sentinels. It then covers the various age group sections and major activities of the movement. In addition to the permanent display, the museum has an extensive specialized collection of a wide array of Scouting material.
Queries and research within the collection is undertaken on request by a team of volunteer staff.
Sunday from 1pm to 4pm or alternatively by arrangement. Guided tours can be provided, also by arrangement.
