Ōtākaro Orchard

Sustainable Building in Edible Park

Ōtākaro Orchard is an exemplar site for a 21st-Century edible garden city, creating a beautiful urban oasis that also grows tonnes of food for the community each year. They’re also building a social enterprise cafe with sustainable building features including rainwater harvesting, greywater recycling, composting toilets, solar panels, green roof, adobe brick wall and a building dashboard to showcase the building performance.

SIFT funding will help Ōtākaro to include a number of sustainable design features in their new building.
