Six Rotary Clubs joined forces in 2020 to help Hohepa Canterbury turn wasteland into a beautiful space.
The Rotary Club of Riccarton brought together clubs from Lincoln, Hornby, Papanui, Cashmere & Christchurch Sunrise Rotary to support Hohepa to create a Pathway and a Reflection Garden.   The boundary stream had become overrun and unusable following the Christchurch earthquakes. 
 
After much planning and fundraising within Rotary, more than 50 Rotarians gathered over two weekends armed with gumboots, wheelbarrows and spades to plant a living greenspace.  Together they created a beautiful asset with long lasting benefits for the community.
 
The result will further develop into a natural reflection space for new activities such as market stalls and seasonal events like carol singing.
