Groundwater levels are important for many in Canterbury especially when there is a drought. Christchurch people enjoy beautiful water from these aquifers and we want to keep it that way. We have family and friends with their own wells near: West Melton (or list here), Weedons and Oxford.

Halswell Quarry Park - the original plan. The Sister City Gardens have made a significant change - good because it accelerated planting of some natives but also bad because it adds many more exotic plants to our environment in spite of my protests and the original plan. It required a new plan for the park. Here's the landscape concept plan.
