It is two years since the Mahinga Kai Exemplar was launched in Anzac Drive Reserve by the Avon-Ōtākaro Network, Ngāi Tūāhuriri and Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, the Department of Conservation, and several other groups passionate about restoring biodiversity and mahinga kai. To celebrate our achievements we are celebrating Matariki at the original planting site on Chimera Crescent on Sunday 19 June.

Come along to Anzac Drive Reserve in the red zone to celebrate Matariki. Learn about weaving and making poi out of natural materials, carving, the environment and whitebait, make a little waka out of raupo reeds (mokihi) to take home, grab some hangi and soup for free. There'll be a kids treasure hunt, school art competition winners and the chance to help make a living sculpture. If you feel like helping to plant our orchard and some native trees, bring a spade and your gummies along. There will also be coffee and entertainment!
