EcoMatters Environment Trust, 1 Olympic Place, New Lynn


All Ages

Ticket Information:

  • Koha- Rongoa Maori: $0.00

Let’s learn a bit more about some of our native plants, how to correctly identify them and a bit about how Maori use them for healing. You will get a chance to taste some remedies and learn about the philosophies that form the backbone of Rongoa Maori (Maori Healing).

Donna Kerridge is a respected traditional Maori medicine practitioner of Waikato Tainui descent. She has recently been appointed to the Ministry of Health’s Natural Health Products Advisory Committee and is also a contracted negotiator for the national collective of rongoa Maori practitioners, Te Kāhui Rongoa.

Donna believes fostering a mutual respect for traditional Maori healing principles and knowledge alongside contemporary medical practices offers the potential for enhanced well-being for the people of Aotearoa. Learning and sharing the stories of her native land and its ecology is an opportunity to promote the healing of both the land and its people.

Entry by koha. Registrations essential.
