Flourish Kia Puāwai wins a Kumara Award

Thursday, November 24, 2022   Posted in: Signatory Notice Board By: Administrator With tags: placemaking, community connection, regenerative communities, awards

Flourish is one of five fabulous placemaking winners in Ōtautahi this year.

We were given a friendly surprise with an award for the mahi we've done with our Regenerative Communities Pilot project in the Tiny Forest aka King George V Reserve. The awards are given by Placemaking Aotearoa for projects that create a deeper connection between communities and their place. We took out the 'Tiakina te whenua, ka manaakitia te tangata. Caring for the land, caring for the people' award for Ōtautahi, Waimakariri, Selwyn region.  

Huge thanks to Maui Stuart and Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke for their strong support and involvement in the project. Thanks to Placemaking Aotearoa for the recognition and affirmation with these inspirational awards. Thanks also to Lotteries Research for funding support to get us to this point in our development. The journey of growing together whenua and people has only just begun. The growing Community of the Tiny Forest will be celebrating the achievement together amongst the flowering harakeke and ti kouka and regenerating totara at our next monthly Give Back Saturday.

These winning projects reflect a range of strategies and perspectives on how to have a big impact on the spirit and connectedness of communities.
