We recently spent a day with Kaikorai Primary School pupils using KEEWAI as a focus point for environmental education around waterways. Second year running the girls were braver than the boys when it came to “who wants to hold a KEEWAI!” Always nice to spend time talking to the next generation about the the importance of water quality and conservation.
The KEEWAI story was recognised as a stand-out in the recently released MPI Sustainable Farming Fund publication celebrating 1000 projects (click on image to enlarge).
