Cultivate Christchurch -Bailey Peryman and the Red Zone

Bailey Peryman and Margaret Jefferies introduced me on 22 October to Cultivate Christchurch’s market gardening work with young people….helping Christchurch feed itself. Bailey described the 1000 or so acre Red Zone in the middle of the city, which was leveled by the 2011 earthquake, and which went liquid. Unsuitable for building on, the Red Zone would be ideal for food growing,  parks and for social and cultural facilities. Yet in 7 years, no decisions have been made….so the community and civil society might take the initiative? Have a look at Bailey’s short video about his work, and also his podcast on Steven Moe’s itunes site below….
