Christchurch 2019

Smart Seeds Christchurch is now complete!

A huge congratulations to our Christchurch participants who presented their final solutions at our showcase event. The winners of the Judges Award, ‘Recircler’, will have the opportunity to present their solution again at the Canterbury Chief Executive Forum later this year. Our People’s Choice Award went to ‘Canopy of Lights’.
