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. 


We have provided Bush Farm's services to seven different client groups. We have delivered programmes to preschoolers,  5 - 8-year-olds,  5 - 12-year-olds, adult and child, adults-only, and a group of international Chinese families.


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.
