Raumati Workshops

This year’s workshops at Kāpiti College involved two themed Sundays: Winter Wellness & Home Hacks and Love Food Hate Waste.

Winter Wellness & Home Hacks involved an Alchemy of Tea workshop with herbalist Daisy Wood, a Kawakawa Soapmaking workshop with Anne Marie O’Brien and a Permeable Paving, Rainwater and Greywater workshop with Ben Thompson and Hannah Zwartz exploring how to prepare your garden and home for more extreme weather events.

The following Sunday’s “Love Food Hate Waste” day included a DIY Beeswax Wraps workshop, a cooking demonstration focused on reusing leftovers, a preserving workshop and a Zero Waste My Pantry demonstration by the Rubbish Trip duo, Hannah Blumhardt and Liam Prince.

In between, the newly formed Raumati Village Community Garden group hosted a compost making workshop and tool sharpening session at the site for their community garden at Weka Road.
