For the season of celebrating the Maori New Year, signalled by Puanga and Matariki whetu, we are offering two Seed-bomb making sessions for tamariki/rangatahi.

These sessions are related to two whetu in particular, Tupuanuku and Tupuarangi, of the Matariki Constellation/Kahui Whetu. We will make acknowledgements to these whetu as part of the session.

Bring a container to take away your dirt bombs for throwing in your garden at home.
