What’s on



This year we planted over 420 Fruit Trees into Schools, Community Groups and public spaces, not only do we plant the trees we make sure they are looked after and we work along side the groups to establish Orchards, Food Forests and diverse systems.

Next year we aim to distribute 500 fruit trees and 1000’s of native pollinator plants, we need your help to do this.

You can do this by contributing to our Give a Little campaign or by emailing admin@ediblecanterbury.org.nz
