Weeds or food?
Join Homer Xu from Gardens4Health, who will speak in Mandarin for Chinese communities in Auckland, about replacing common pest-plants with useful native plants in your garden.
The selected pest plants may be of edible or medicinal value among Chinese communities, but are a threat to our native species. On this walk and talk you will learn about rongoā plants (rongoā translates as traditional Māori medicine) that can replace these pest-plants as an alternative source of food and medicine.
Attendees must register for the event through CCET (Chinese Conservation Education Trust) telephone booking system – 09 303 0633.
This session is organised and funded by the Department of Conservation, supported by Chinese Conservation Education Trust, the Gardens4Health team of Diabetes Projects Trust and Auckland Botanic Gardens, spoken in Mandarin for Chinese communities in Auckland.
