The Waitai Coastal-Burwood-Linwood Community Board is committed to encouraging the growth of localised food production. The Board’s active and ongoing support for activities and initiatives that build strong and resilient communities is a priority.
We are also keen to support and grow our relationships with local primary schools championing the next generation to grow their own food, and nurture their environment, themselves and others.
In partnership with the Canterbury Horticultural Society, the Edible and Sustainable Garden Awards programme within the Waitai Coastal-Burwood-Linwood Community Board area is a wonderful way to acknowledge and celebrate those local residents, schools and communities that are passionate about their gardens and their bountiful harvests.
