This is a whaanau friendly event. Dogs are welcome! Parking available at Manurewa High School.
We will be aiming to serve the hangi at 5pm. Please make sure you register for a hangi ticket so you don’t miss out! If you are keen to help out with the hangi making process please email Levi on [email protected]
About the Maara Kai
A 1.6 acre paddock located in the heart of Manurewa next to Manurewa High School and adjacent to Manukau Super Clinic is being transformed into a community and educational urban farm. Plans for the garden include an education garden, a productive market garden, a healing rongoa garden, a food forest, a worm farm and a community garden with communal and allotment areas to provide wholesome and nutritious food to the Manurewa community. This large community garden will nurture the community surrounding it, and be based on biodynamic, organic and Maatauranga Maaori practices, including rongoa (healing) and traditional Maaori planting practices, guided by Maramataka (the Maaori lunar calendar).
