Last term some Year 9 students visited Manaaki Whenua (Landcare) to learn about Ngā Hekaheka o Aotearoa – our fungi. We got to view many amazing fungi, to see how the national collection of NZ fungi is stored and to bring some edible fungi back to school to grow. Some students even got to eat them.
