2022-06-30 2022-07-14 Gardening Talk | Growing Kai
Calling all green thumbs!
The Howick Historical Village is set in seven acres of landscaped grounds with established native and exotic trees, a large pond and extensive cultivated gardens.
The fruit trees and vegetable gardens showcase a variety of produce all year round and the herb garden and other planting schemes contain edible plants grown by Maori and early settlers to New Zealand, reflecting the 1840s-1880s era of the Village.
Learn more in this informal talk with the Village’s Heritage Gardener, Luke Southern. See the giant pomelos and some of the incredible heirloom vegetable varieties of corn, gourds and pumpkins produced in the gardens over the last few months. Get his top tips on how to get your own homegrown kai on the table! Two sessions available: 30th June 11am, and 14th July 11am. 
No booking required.
