Living Streets-hosted innovative project, Greening the Rubble, is celebrating its first year in Christchuch with an award from the Civic Trust. Several mini parks are complete, others under construction, by a growing team of volunteers.
Living Streets and helpers turn Earthquake damaged land into parks.
