PROJECTS BASED AT MASSEY UNIVERSITY


From the beginning of Tahuri Whenua there have been annual projects aligned to Massey University in Palmerston North, sometimes also in association with Lincoln University in Canterbury, which relate to a range of crops and topics and which have contributed to the maintenance of plants and seed or led to occasional workshops or hui. 


The following links include photos and reports of some of these projects and also introduce some of the students involved.
