Christmas can wait - it's two weeks until Love Your Mountain Day! The programme has been finalised, this week flyers are hitting letterboxes around Mt Eden, and the event listing will appear along with the image of people around the crater rim in the upcoming OurAuckland mini magazine.
I'd like to highlight three particular activities on the day:
- a landscape drawing workshop led by Paul Johnston, chair of Eden Arts (for which prior registration is required - see programme)
- a display and discussion forum hosted by Bernadette Papa, Director of the Auckland Weavers Network, on the importance of conserving native species for customary Māori weaving arts
- a mau rākau demonstration at Government House grounds by Malcolm Kerehoma.
See you there!
