The children learnt about native plants and their healing properties. They used this knowledge to make their own drink using leaves and citrus fruits and then a hummus using the dried leaves. They also had a relaxation session where they had moistened Kawakawa leaves on their eyes while they received mirimiri. This was such a fantastic learning opportunity for our tamariki; strengthening relationships with the community, learning about what our tupuna used for healing and it also links with our current planning around kai. We’d like to thank Leonie and Nick for sharing your knowledge and time. Nga Mihi
