Linwood Tiny Shops Village is a collection of small buildings set in a landscaped garden which hosts community-led activities, workshops, shops and a cafe since opening in February 2019. Creating Tiny Shops Village was a collaboration with Christchurch City Council who funded and supported the work, and Te Whare Roimata who operate the village as part of a wider programme of community development projects in Christchurchs’ Inner City East.
The Family Recovery Garden Te Oranga Rā is a garden to bring public awareness to the family and community issue of addiction and recovery. Re-designed and built in collaboration with Odyssey House Christchurch, the garden opened in April 2017 and has been operated and maintained by the residents of the house. Prior to 2017 the space was known as Places of Tranquility.
