Canterbury Community Gardens Association

About

What is the CCGA?

The Vision

“Strengthen and nurture existing community gardens, and support new initiatives, in order to build strong communities and encourage these by respecting and fostering human and environmental diversity.”

 

The Canterbury Community Gardens Association is a networking organisation for community gardens, promoting the growth of new and existing initiatives.
CCGA is a group of community gardeners and supportive individuals who are working together to promote and strengthen community garden initiatives in Christchurch.

CCGA is a signatory of the Healthy Christchurch Charter and the Avon Otakaro Network Charter.

Community gardens are social centres that produce food and promote self-sufficiency. They play a vital role in communities by bringing people together and breaking down social isolation. They are also valuable educational resources, places for people to build confidence and develop employment related skills.
