The first harvest from Christchurch’s Agropolis Urban Farm is ready to eat this Saturday. On Saturday, the group will run a morning of workshops open to anyone – seed raising, composting and shed building. At midday,everyone will stop working and enjoy a giant salad harvested from the gardens. Agropolis Urban Farm has many benefits for the city of Christchurch, including composting organic waste from inner city hospitality businesses, as well as the ground preparation, sowing and planting, harvesting, cooking and distribution of the produce. They hope to develop a ‘garden to plate’ experience and are involved in assessing Christchurch’s food resilience – an important part of city planning. Agropolis Urban Farm is found at 154 High Street (former Poplar Lane area) and on Facebook and was part of the Festival of Transitional Architecture.
