This Matariki adventure gives tamariki the experience of being in the forest, where they will begin to cultivate deep and meaningful connections to their natural environment.
Children will learn survival skills and how to forage, harvest and cook edible native plants found in the ngahere (bush). Led by exceptional instructors who teach kaitiakitanga (guardianship) to children through place based, play based learning experiences.
It is hoped that children will come to understand that the taiao (natural world) will nurture them, and they in turn must nurture the taiao (natural world).
Wet weather gear may be required. This event will go ahead rain or shine.
Proudly supported by the Friends of Arataki.
