The Green Lab creates urban green spaces that support strong social connections and promote wellbeing in Ōtautahi Christchurch. Our green spaces enable community building and connect people with nature in the urban environment.
We put community, wellbeing and environmental sustainability before profit. We see our focus and impact in the context of the Living Standards Framework.
For us, design is a social process of co-creation and capacity building. Where possible we take a participatory approach that involves end-users in the design and construction of the space.
“The Green Lab is an astounding organisation: besides their unquestionable skills in landscaping and rejuvenating vacant spaces, The Green Lab has demonstrated a great community focus and a genuine community development attitude.”
