The lockdown provided a very unique opportunity for He Kākano community nursery manager, Jordie, in lending the time to create a resource for schools, marae and community groups in the form of a native seed collecting guide. Fortunately Te Aho Tū Roa were really keen to collaborate, so Kawiti and Jordie set out to create both and english te reo Māori version.
This resource covers tikanga, ecosourcing, a few of our favourite riparian species and a seed collecting calendar at the back. We are stoked to announce they are fresh from the printers, but also freely available through the links below.
Special thanks to the Toimata Foundation for our first printing run and everyone who helped with this awesome project.
