Tahuri Whenua hui at Hinetapora, Ruatoria

Well hosted by Tawhai McClutcie and whanaunga, many of whom are members of the East Coast Organic Producers Trust (ECOPT), Tahuri Whenua continued to fly the flag of Maori horticulture.

Richard Hunter discusses added-value in kumara with a range of products from the Japanese market, including kumara flour, noodles and liquer (20%...).

Field trips to two local growers gave insight into crops and methods on the East Coast. Below is Fraser Taiapa displaying his adaption for weeding kumara.
