About this Event
Tutor: Kelly Francis – Kaiwhakahaere, Whenua Warrior

Kelly Francis, (AKA Whenua Warrior) is on a mission to feed, teach & empower communities via māra kai. Kelly will share with us her insight and experience of Maramataka and how you can incorporate this teaching into your everyday through practical tips and guides.

You will also take away a Maramataka dial so you can apply the knowledge in your own garden.

The Māori lunar calendar is called Maramataka, which literally means the turning of the moon. It marks the phases of the moon in a lunar month.

Each night, which typically marks a day, was given a name and over time each day/night was accompanied by information guiding fishing, gardening, and other activities in the natural world. During a typical lunar month, some days are noted as being favourable for resource harvesting, whereas other days are known to be unfavourable.
