Matariki Tu Rākau Grant

September 29, 2021

The Matariki Tu Rākau Grant is still open for 2021 applications, and 2022 will be their last planting season with the grant, so they are encouraging people/schools to apply as soon as they can.

MPI/Matariki Tu Rākau also just released a video to promote planting in schools. It features an Enviroschool in Hamilton, Maeroa Intermediate. The video shows a recent planting day, where students collected seed, propagated seedlings in their shade house and planted to form a new outdoor classroom at their school.

The Matariki Tu Rākau supported this planting which commemorated Rob Begbie, a teacher and stalwart of the Maeroa School’s community.

The video can be viewed below on YouTube and in these locations:
