We need your help

The Friends of the Christchurch Botanic Gardens Inc. are advocating for the restoration of the earthquake-damaged Mona Vale Edwardian Bathhouse.

Edwardian Bathhouse Restoration Project

We have submitted a request to the Christchurch City Council to bring the repairs forward from 2029 to 2025 on the Councils’ Long Term Plan.

The Friends have begun a fund-raising campaign to assist the Christchurch City Council to repair the Bathhouse in 2025. The campaign was begun in March 2023 with a very successful Edwardian Garden Party at Mona Vale Homestead when $50,000 was raised for this purpose.

We still need your help so that the Bathhouse can be repaired.
It will be used to house a collection of semi-tropical plants and include a specially designed fountain; a place where the public can enjoy a cup of coffee, hold small group meetings or hire for boutique functions.

Please help by donating to help bring back this iconic building to former glory.

Direct donations to the Bathhouse Restoration Project can be made online by internet banking, or by cash or eftpos at the Kiosk.
