PARTNER WITH US TO CULTIVATE THE COMMUNITY

Help us to ensure successful and vibrant futures for our young people in Canterbury.

Cultivate Christchurch is a charitable organisation, so all profits go back into supporting local youth and the community. We are growing the sustainable revenue we generate through produce sales and currently more than 50% of our operating costs are community-funded. We rely on grants and donations to offer training and employment opportunities to local youth. 

 

We currently generate the funding required to provide 10-12 (20 week) internships per year and only eight of our youth internship places are supported by government funding with a shortfall per intern. This is where we need your help! Have a look at the options we offer below and help us ensure the future of our community.

SPONSOR A YOUTH INTERNSHIP

There are currently 4000+ young people, aged 16-25 in Christchurch who are not engaging in any form of education, employment or training (EET).

 

Without positive transitions into EET before the age of 25, they are at a high-risk of welfare dependency, mental illness, crime and causing harm to themselves and others. With the support of the community, we grow skills, provide meaningful work experience and employment opportunities for young people in an urban farming environment. 

Talk to us about becoming a sponsor and

enable another young person to enter an

internship at Cultivate - $11,340 covers one 20-week internship.

"Cultivate is a programme that is many things to many people. Some know it for the production of sweet tasting healthy organic vegetables; some as a place to get their own seedlings for their own gardens. I know it for the way it gives life to young people, helps provide them with new meaning for life and fills them with hope.”

OUR FUNDERS & SUPPORTERS

 It takes a village to raise a child - Cultivate is no exception from this. We would not be where we are now without many people helping us out, chipping in, offering us pro bono work, financial support, advice and guidance.

 

We want to take the opportunity to thank everyone that has supported us throughout the years and who enable us to drive our mission as well as all the people and organisations that continue to support us.
