Fruit trees possible for Christchurch parks

7:26 pm on 24 May 2014

Christchurch residents could be picking fruit within council parks soon, as two city councillors explore plans for a fruit forest.

Councillors Vicki Buck and Ali Jones plan to put the idea to the council.

Ms Jones says a lot of work, such as putting together ideas and guidelines on what can be planted and where, is already underway.

"I'm putting together a blurb for my council and for staff as well and then we'll hopefully try to move it forward."

Ms Jones says the next step will be going to community boards for their ideas and involvement.
