Cultivate Christchurch
Event Description

Cultivate Christchurch is a social enterprise that works to reduce youth unemployment by employing young people in an urban farming environment.

We grow produce using organic methods, and sell to bars/restaurants/cafes within Christchurch's CBD and local community.

We look forward to showing you our productive, market garden where we are achieve 6 figures of revenue targets all through our composting service, high quality crops and worm farms.

We employ 10-12 young people and have an 81% success rate of supporting young people off the benefit and into education, employment or training.

We also have weekly open days on Thursdays where individuals and groups can book in to participate in farm tasks. Annually we host around 600 people per year with the majority of volunteers from community organisations and schools.
