About this project

The Restless Forest is a project aimed at telling a story of what remains of the natural world in Christchurch. This is a collaboration between Greening the Rubble and the Department of Conservation.

The Restless Forest is designed to be mobile, educational and interactive. Each time the forest moves, a new story is written about the journey. There are also downloadable colouring pages to accompany each chapter, and a collectible sticker will be hidden in a geocache within the forest garden.
