What we have achieved in our second year of operation
We have piloted and delivered programmes across six unique sites across the wider Canterbury region, from Little River to Oxford, to four sites within Ōtautahi Christchurch. We also bought Bush Farm to Te Whanganui-a-Tara, Wellington. Most of our sites are on public land (reserves and parks). Two are on private farms.
10 clients for our Chinese Delegation in Wellington in April 2019.
40 enrolled clients for our weekly 'On the Farm' programme for Term 4, 2019.
55 clients (children only) came through our October 2019 school holiday offerings.
57 clients (children and adults) came through our January 2020 school holiday offerings.
Of those, we have about a 70% return rate.
We have developed effective partnerships with seven businesses and independent contractors, who bring their skill set and passion to Bush Farm clients. They range from farmers to crafters to herbalists, to those in the outdoor industry. Each bringing a professional skillset to us.

260 clients have experienced holistic experiences that connect them to their heart, hand and head, over seven sites with caring and passionate practitioners who prioritise wellbeing and treading lightly on this earth.
