This initiative created an active, sustainable, regenerative eco- learning space at Te Takutai o te Titī Marae (Colac Bay), enabling a whānau member to be the kaihautū of this project. The initiative has developed a partnership with Department of Corrections (prisoners are propagating and growing native plants), local schools come to the marae to learn about the environmental challenges, there is a te reo revitalisation strategy, maara kai, planting days and a native nursery. The investment is to support young members of Ōraka Aparima to understand the natural ecosystems, know how to address the toxins in freshwater, regenerate native forests and improve wai Māori.
