Manaaki Whenua, Manaaki Tāngata
This is your chance to connect with our beautiful campus and with others and increase your knowledge of tikanga Māori (sustainable practices) while enjoying time outside.
Taking care of the land brings wellbeing to our communities
Our wellbeing is inextricably linked to the wellbeing of our environment. This manaaki whenua working bee is an opportunity for us as a Unitec Te Whare Wananga o Wairaka whānau, to support our own wellbeing through connection to the whenua (land).
By helping to take care of our wāhi tapu, our sacred spaces here on campus, you will learn about Te Waiunuroa o Wairaka (the natural spring named after Wairaka), rongoā Māori (medicinal plants including harakeke) and the biodiversity which the healing waters of Wairaka sustain.
