This two hour workshop will provide a peek into the world of Rongoā Rākau; Traditional Māori Plant Medicine. We will explore a selection of native plants and discuss key philosophies, principles and processes of Rongoā Māori.
There will be an opportunity to taste a remedy and to make a balm suited to the colder months that call in the rise of Matariki - the Māori New Year.
