Eye on Nature Whānau Day 2022 is on Saturday 26 March. Watch this space for updates and more details about the programme!
Not only does kai (food) nourish us and keep our bodies healthy, but our relationship with kai also affects the health of the planet. Food security and sustainability are becoming increasingly important on our collective journey to a greener future.
Understanding where kai comes from, how it gets to the table and what happens with food scraps helps us deepen our personal relationship with nature. Kai is also an amazing social connector which brings communities and whānau together.
Throughout Eye on Nature 2022, tamariki and whānau will learn more about...
How food is made, from growing to gathering
How we prepare and eat food, and how food nourishes us
How food gets to
Waste & Recycling
What we do with packaging and food scraps
