Many different people from around Aotearoa / New Zealand and also around the world have contributed to the growers collective in various ways.  In particular we have hosted students at all levels of study, researchers with an interest in Maori horticulture and ethno-botany, and a wide range of associates or affiliates.

Some of them are introduced here........
