“Mamakan led us on a beautiful, informative and uplifting walk through the grounds of the school bringing a variety of native plants and trees into respectful focus. The preparations made from flowers, foliage, and stems were exquisitely thought through and presented. I've been excited to have and pass on little bits of my learning already.” Michaela Hendry, Teacher
“The Art of Foraging walk was a creative experience that both myself and my daughter thoroughly enjoyed. Mamakan's facilitation brought through a strong sense of reverence for beauty and connection for these plants and trees on the land. An experience of joy, wonder and magic that enabled us to enter into a deepening relationship and receive some of the gifts that these plants offer to us if we just allow space and time.” - Amanda Hookham-Kraft, Regenerative Practitioner, Interior Designer | Director
“It felt like a very full experience that was well put together. The weaving of the Maori and Scandinavian mythologies was quite unique. I loved the thoughtful and artistic attention to detail in the presentation.” - Susanne Cole, Ngahere Teacher
