Community Gardens - Sustainability - University of Canterbury - New Zealand

Welcome to the UC Community Garden Homepage

The community gardens here on campus aim to be creative and relaxing places on the University campus - a time and space out from work or study. Anyone is free to wander through the gardens and for those wanting to get more involved, come along to one of the regular gardening times at either garden to meet others, take part in some hands-on gardening and learn new things. No previous gardening experience is necessary, and volunteers get to take home their share of the fresh produce collected that day!

There are two community gardens; Okeover Community Garden and Dovedale Community Garden. Okeover was established in 2002, while Dovedale was established in late 2010.
