A small community food forest is being established in Lyttelton. It is probably the first of its kind in the harbour which makes it all the more special.
We have developed the preliminary food forest design during the Forest Garden workshop with Robina McCurdy. The design has being enriched and adapted to meet the needs of the local community. Our first community working bee was amazing. About 20 people come to help and the small forest was planted out in less than a day.
There is still an opportunity to be involved, as the forest will require ongoing maintenance until it can support itself. We are also yet to put in herbs and ground cover plants so watch this space for more activities coming up.
The Harbour Co-op was established in 2012 with direct support from the Harbour Resilience Project. Originally founded in order to purchase the local organic/wholefoods shop, Lyttel Piko, the Co-op is now owned by over 170 local households and organisations.
