- KŌHUNGA + TAEORE HARAKEKE -


Restore and uphold the mana and ancestral traditions of Maniapoto native harakeke varieties, while ensuring the mauri of these taonga is maintained with the knooowledge and history of the land and its resources.


These harakeke are native varieties of Maniapoto, they are well-known to hold the silkiest, white muka fibres. These varieties are diminishing in the Maniapotot/Waikato. Our goal is to eco-source over 200 plants from existing pā harakeke within the hapu and multiply that 200 into 2000 within a 3 year timeframe.. Once we have reached our goal we will distribute the 2000 plants back into the Manipoto area to whānau, kōhunga, kūra, businesses, marae, reserves, parks etc.

Our native sand daphne that has been recorded as declined in 2004 and now extinct. We have been researching and experimenting with Toroheke actively for the last 5 years. Our goal is to protect and preserve the remaining plants on the west coast, while planting new plants across the entire west coast of North Island.
