Following on from their efforts with Habitat for Humanity last year, some of our Christchurch team recently volunteered their time at the Packe Street Community Garden.
The garden in St. Albans, Christchurch produce and share food, flowers and hospitality with the local community, growing a range of organic, spray-free fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers.
The team cleared weeds, overgrown plants and debris, and mulched several landscaped areas. They found it a change to their usual office-based jobs and enjoyed a few laughs while doing something good for the community.
Last year the team spent time assisting Habitat for Humanity with their stocktake at the ReStore Christchurch branch. Habitat for Humanity is a not-for-profit organisation that works in partnership with ‘families in need of decent and affordable housing’ by helping to build, renovate and preserve homes, along with other valuable initiatives. Habitat for Humanity works towards’ a world where everyone has a decent place to live’ which we think ties in really well with Hampton Jones’s own mission to ‘champion better buildings because better buildings make for better lives.’
