Porourangi Tawhiwhirangi IV NTOTW 17 11 2021

Kai boxes, support of marae through fencing, landscaping and planting – along with merchandise and growing hemp and medical cannabis are just some of the projects that Porourangi Tawhiwhirangi coordinates on behalf of the East Coast Cannabis Company and the Mahi Atu Trust. He spoke with Erana about how it all started and how it’s going. Growing a maara by the maramataka provides opportunity for rangatahi and students to learn how to grow kai and give back to whanau and kaumatua in our community.
