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.
Pourewa Māra Kai Whānau Distribution.
Every week we harvest vege’s from our māra kai at Pourewa to distribute to whānau.
Next whānau pick-up is on Tuesday 15 Dec from 1pm at Pourewa Reserve (entrance closest to Z Petrol Station). We ask that you bring your own kai bags and only take what you need as it is first in first serve.
Koha mai! Volunteer today at Pourewa.
Stay tuned to our platforms for more on how our whānau and community can get involved…
