Free pizza at the Community Garden Open Day!

Te Ngaki o Waiutuutu (Waiutuutu Community Garden) is having an open day, and you’re invited!

This is a great opportunity to explore and learn about UC’s beautiful community garden, meet some like-minded people, and be the first to learn about our upcoming workshops. We’ll be firing up the rocket oven to make some yummy pizzas, along with sharing some other yummy kai. 🍕

Drop in between 12pm – 2pm on Friday 23 February.

Our garden is located just off Engineering Road, along the Waiutuutu stream pathway. Learn more and see a map for how to find the garden here.

Save the Facebook event so you don’t forget!

Free bike skill workshops

Want to start biking to uni?

If you haven’t been on a bike for a while or want to take your confidence and skills to a new level, then our free bike skill workshops are for you!

Sessions range from covering the basics such as how to fit a helmet and use gears correctly, to helping you travel through intersections, and navigating on-road cycle lanes in busier traffic.

The workshops are completely free and held on and around UC campus during lunchtime. Loan bikes and helmets can be provided on request.

Three sessions are coming up for our UC community in March:

  • Tuesday 5 March, 12pm – 1pm
  • Tuesday 12 March, 12pm – 1pm
  • Tuesday 19 March, 12pm – 1pm

Registration is essential as spots are limited. Please contact chloe.sutton@canterbury.ac.nz for more details and to register your interest.
