About Tai Tapu Sculpture Garden and Native Regeneration Project:
Our mission is to support contemporary sculpture practice in New Zealand and to enhance native biodiversity in Canterbury.

Since Autumn 2010 over 8000 native trees and shrubs have been planted. Our aim is to recreate a podocarp forest of totara, matai, and kahikatea. The garden is also home to rare or threatened native plants of Canterbury. This once bare one-hectare paddock is thriving. It is a sanctuary to native birds and sculpture lovers alike.
