Everyone Welcome at
Te Pā o Moki Marae Taumutu
ESAI and the Whakaora Te Waikēkēwai Project would like to invite you to attend a morning workshop to discuss mahinga kai values around Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere. Our speakers at the workshop will include:
- Sophie McGregor from the Whakaora Te Waikēkēwai Project who will give an update on their project and some history on Taumutu.
- Steve Carrick- will discuss his role as Pou Mātai Kō at ECan.
- Channell Thoms- will present on Kākahi (freshwater mussels), Kēkēwai (freshwater crayfish) and other important mahinga kai species found in the area.
- Sylvia McAslan will discuss mahinga kai considerations for FEP’s.
It is hoped that this workshop will help to bring attention to the aligned beliefs between farmers and iwi relating to the protection of land and water and how we can all work together to continue to improve the health of the local ecosystems in the Ellesmere area.
Farmers joining this workshop can receive an attendance certificate which can assist in reaching FEP goals and audit reporting.
As part of this workshop Te Taumutu Rūnanga will be offering morning tea and a light lunch.
There will also be an opportunity for those attending to have a walk around Te Repo Orariki following kai.
Bookings are essential for catering purposes so please contact Jo to find out more and book your space.
