(Noun: To blossom or come to fruition) “Poipoia te kakano, kia puawai - Nurture the seed and it will blossom”

In this edition of Puāwai (our new look Elderberries magazine) we honour servicemen and women whether returned or serving, and commemorate New Zealanders who’ve lost their lives to war.

Among other updates, you can learn more about Council’s collaborative partnership with local iwi to encourage and support young rangatahi to study in the environmental sciences and engineering fields.

And, for those who prefer to read or listen in online, this is the second edition of Puāwai that features digitally on our website and via email. 

We hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoy creating it for you.
