Sustainability, biodiversity, art, culture and bringing old practices back to daily life is all happening in Walmer Reserve.

The Albert-Eden Local Board has allowed Kahui Kairaranga o Tamaki, a harakeke weaving group, to manage Walmer Reserve in Pt Chevalier (read more).

The Kahui is growing harakeke for weaving and bringing along appropriate kawa to manage the reserve for the Board. “It’s a great opportunity to see what can be achieved through true partnership, using old techniques and fostering use of the park by our community. I hope it can become a model for other parks in Auckland” says Margi Watson of the Albert-Eden Local.
