The new nursery development at Pourewa was completed in June 2020. The activities on-site will continue to develop and offer an ongoing legacy in terms of the protection and development of the Tāmaki plant collection, as well as the development of a seed bank of Tāmaki species. These collections help support Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei in our role as a key educator, carrier and guardian of knowledge and leader for research around kaitiakitanga, traditional use and practices.

Future development of māra kai and māra rongoā plantings will form a garden which interfaces with the public, as part of the Tāmaki plant collection and as a physical site for hands on education and research. Aligned with this, there will be a dedicated space for rongoā preparation.
