Kia ora koutou,
Our maara kai has been getting plenty of rain and sunshine over the past couple of weeks. We have caulis, beetroot and lettuces ready to harvest and I’m sure there will be a few weeds to be pulled. You’re welcome to take enough kai for your whānau but please leave the Pā Kids kamokamo in the big patch, and we would very much appreciate it if you could help us with keeping the gardens tidy and weed-free.
We are currently checking and updating contact details for iwi members to help us keep connected to you and your whānau. You may receive a phone call or email from the office over the next few weeks to confirm your details. If you have moved recently or plan to move over the next month or so please let the office know so we can update the database.
The numbers attending the Kanohi ki te Kanohi hui have been declining, and I guess discussing operations can be boring for many. In the new year, I propose we have these meetings at two-monthly intervals with a guest speaker on a topical subject. The first hui for 2019 will be Thursday, 22 February where I hope to have Tina Porou along to consult on Te Pokohiwi. I promise it will be a lot more interesting than me talking about operations.
Have a great week.
