a Conservation Week Event- A Conservation Week walk & talk for Chinese communities

Organised and funded by DOC, supported by Chinese Conservation Education Trust and Gardens4Health

Weed or food?

The aim of this workshop to help Chinese gardeners/ general residents to understand bio-security and biodiversity beyond their home gardens, by identifying a number of most commonly seen pest plants, plus introducing some useful native plants. The selected pest plants may be of edible or medicinal value among Chinese communities, therefore bio-security mind set needs to be reinforced. Hopefully those selected rongoa plants will be encouraging people to appreciate and utilise native plants as an alternative source of those popular but blacklisted plants.

Note: The workshop will be conducted in Mandarin.
