Sowing the seed for Māori to grow food

From Country Life, 7:27 pm on 17 May 2024

It's early autumn and we're heading to a tunnel house - heaving with late harvest tomatoes and a flourishing vine.

It's part of a māra where whānau are getting their hands in the soil and finding out how to grow food in their own backyards with the help of Pounamu Skelton.
