Friends of Farnley Reserve

Who we are

A local community group of people keen to upgrade and preserve the Farnley Reserve for the enjoyment of all.  We remove tradescantia and other weeds, replacing them with mulch and native plants.


This site was created in 1998 as a joint project between the Soroptomists (Christchurch) and the Christchurch City Council.  It features art work by Bing Dawe, which is a bronze sculpture entitled ‘Migrating Eels’.


We meet every 3rd Sunday of the month, 10.00 - 11.30am

Bring gardening tools and morning tea, and a sense of humour!
