March 22, 2015

The Mālama Kumu met local farm owner Sarah Smuts-Kennedy, who hosted them for an afternoon of making compost, fresh lunch from the garden and bee hive checks. The also visited Mahurangi Regional Park, where they collected limu for compost, and found a few shells along the way. “We felt right at home,” Eliza commented.

In the evening, the Malama Kumu crew climbed up Mount Eden in Auckland to watch the sunset. There, they met with storyteller Pita Turei to learn about the mo‘olelo of this sacred place.
