Saving NZ's heritage seeds

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:19 pm on 15 May 2020

The Koanga Institute is a charitable trust that works to save New Zealand's heritage seeds and plants. 

Over the past 30 years, the Institute has collected and saved hundreds of not only heritage vegetable seed lines but also heritage fruit tree lines.

We speak to Kay Baxter, who co-founded the Institute with her husband Bob.
