Bring a spade and your gloves to help with expanding the area we have already planted. Having a few old buckets for watering would be great too.

If, like us, you love to see a native lowland forest and wetlands for all of Christchurch to use, for free, be sure to let Regenrate know you support us and our vision. The more support the better!
Our vision is to transform the Avon River Red Zone into a vibrant, city-to-sea native forest park along the Avon-Ōtākaro River.

We believe this land should be returned to nature, creating a ribbon of green from the the town centre to New Brighton. A forest park would provide a setting for sensitive recreation, a catalyst for regeneration and tourism, protection from flooding and pollution and enhance our city. It will also create an ecological paradise for native flora and fauna and a clean, green forest park to be enjoyed by all. We advocate for a simple, common sense approach that works with nature to remediate this land for the good of the community and our natural environment. Our forest park proposal is low cost, low impact with huge benefits and returns both directly and indirectly.
