Pi Mahi - Working Bee

This Pī Mahi working bee day we are working on the ngahere rongoā (medicinal forest) and ngākina (gardens) maintenance and development. The mahi generally includes removal of weeds, planting, moving mulch, lifting and digging.  It is physical and dirty labour so you need to come dressed in long pants, solid boots and sun or rain protection.  Ideally you'll be able to bring your own gloves and some gardening equipment too!

Please bring any appropriate equipment that will help us to complete our task faster and please bring a plate for shared kai. Let us know via email if you'd like to join us so we can have an idea of numbers to plan the jobs - kiaora@teherengawakaoorewa.co.nz . You don't need to stay for the whole day, any help would be wonderful.

Please feel free to pass on the pānui.

Nāu mai haramai.
