Welcome to the first post about our food forest in Kaiapoi

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.
