The Ōtākaro Orchard is a collaboration of 40+ organizations to create a hub for local food in the heart of Christchurch. Our 1/2 acre site includes a public food forest, community amphitheatre, and an exemplar sustainable building featuring a social enterprise cafe, HQ for the Food Resilience Network, & a venue for community & public use. As the only community-led anchor project of the Christchurch rebuild, the project is a rare partnership between grassroots community, local & national government, and the private sector to create a 100-year public asset on the banks of Ōtākaro/Avon river.

With design input from over 100 people in Christchurch, help from 380 volunteers, and contributions from 550 Cantabrians, we're raised over $1,000,000 in cash and 350K in-kind from over 42 businesses, we've planted our food forest, submitted building consent, and have entered the final phase of the project! Over the coming months, we need to raise $500,000 to deliver the Ōtākaro Orchard in it's entirety.

Help us bring this project home!

Use of funds

All funds raised here go directly to the Ōtākaro Orchard project, to complete the landscape, building, & other essential costs.
