Changing South: How do you grow the good stuff?
Buildings once stood where lettuces now thrive, in the centre of our second biggest city.
They produce more than vegetables here - they’re growing opportunities for young people.
As part of a series Newsroom is running over summer, Christchurch documentary-maker Gerard Smyth takes a look at Cultivate Christchurch - an urban farm attracting nationwide attention.
The series, called Changing South, looks at life the South Island – the people, the places and how events like the Christchurch earthquake have had a lasting impact.
