Roimata Food Commons is a community and food resilience project in Woolston, Christchurch.
It started in 2017 with the planting of 60+ heritage fruit and nut trees and over 500 South Island endemic native trees, shrubs and grasses.
The orchard areas are slowly transitioning into food forest based systems that will include a multitude of food producing and support plant layers. We are also excited to be building a new community garden in the commons this year.
However, as the project has evolved over the last 2 years, we have realised that Roimata Food Commons is about our people in the community, and the space invites us to think about our connection with each other, with food and with nature.
Everyone is welcome to visit Roimata Food Commons, it is a public space.
