Whenua Warrior specialises in Mahinga Kai, Community Engagement, Environmental Conservation and Preservation, based on hua parakore principles and matauranga maori. Whenua Warrior draws from matauranga maori – solutions our Tupuna had and lived māori experience to inform, advise, empower and grow kaitiaki to protect taonga tuku iho. We are committed to nourishing communities, nurturing connectedness to the taiao and prioritise kaitiakitanga. We work with whanau, hapu, iwi, marae, schools, local and central government, supporters and all who are committed to making positive change for the wellbeing of our people and our land.
The purpose of maara kai is to have the ability to produce sustenance for your whanau and collectively for your hapu. Maara kai starts with the soil and ends with our puku being full. We draw on traditional food growing and medicinal practices that contribute to community and whanau leading happy, healthy and cultural lives.”
