Planting BellbirdWe are a group of Christians from a variety of churches around Christchurch who are keen to connect our faith with our enthusiasm to care for God’s creation. We typically meet on the last Sunday of the month at Whare Ora (8 Athleston St) for discussion/speakers/action on particular issues. We also are involved in helping the City Council with reforestation and pest control at Kennedy’s Bush. Every second Sunday of the month, we do a circuit walking around the fairly rugged bush, checking bait levels, and occasionally help with tree planting and maintenance.


The possum line bait has been relocated to Victoria Park. One of the lines (KL) no longer has anyone doing it, so we need to find a replacement one or two people who can share the responsibility is ideal. Please get in touch if you’d like to give it a go – I (Steve) find it a very enjoyable walk and sometimes take my 7 & 9 year old kids. Phil the park ranger can give you a guided tour and fill you in on lots of interesting info. You need a reasonable degree of fitness to do it.
