About The Event

NOTE: Due to the weather forecast the dates have been changed to Thursday 20th June and Friday 21st June.

Fanchastic Events collaborates this Matariki with Ngapeke Permaculture. We are incredibly delighted to extend an invitation to you all to our special Matariki light trail event, which will be taking place over the 21st and 22nd June.  The gates will open at 6pm and close at 10pm on both evenings. Admission to the event is free, however, we will be accepting gold coin donations (KOHA), which can take the form of a contribution such as a pack of seeds, a plate of Kai, or a gold coin donation: 

As the proverb goes, "TO RAURAU TŌKU RAURAU, KA ORA AI TE IWI" - "Your contribution and my contribution brings wellness to the Iwi."

"The shed" nearest the car park at Ngapeke Permaculture -will serve as the location for Matauranga, where a sharing of knowledge will take place, creating an opportunity for us to feast together as a prosperous learning and growing community.

We are excited to confirm the participation of the Pearanui Trust youth group, who will be offering various kai for sale as part of a fundraising initiative. 

The Pearanui Trust is dedicated to nurturing and empowering young people, providing a holistic and culturally sustaining program and environment to develop Rangatahi to reach their full potential through core values that they uphold as the foundation to flourish. We humbly invite you to support their admirable mission by purchasing kai at the event.

We express our sincere gratitude and appreciation for the contributions towards our upcoming Matariki event that will connect the community through the illumination of pathways of Ngapeke Permaculture, and how fitting it is, that each swale is in fact representing the stars of Matariki. This year we are illuminating 4 of 7 Whetū : Waipuna-a-rangi, Hiwa-I-te-Rangi, TupU-ā-Rangi & Mātāriki, and It is heartening to see the multiple community efforts to bring the community together and celebrate our rich cultural heritage.

We would like to assure you of our full support and cooperation in ensuring the success of this event. The preservation of the permaculture block and the well-being of the families attending the event is of utmost importance, and we are committed to upholding the guidelines set for the event, including the prohibition of smoking and drinking on-site.

We believe that this event will not only serve as a delightful cultural experience for the community but also as a platform to promote unity, understanding, and the preservation of our environment. Please do not hesitate to reach out if there is anything we can do to assist in making this event a resounding success.

We are looking forward to your presence at this enriching gathering and hope that you will join us on this beautiful journey.

"Mauri Aroha, Mauri Ora" - The Team at Ngapeke Permaculture & Fanchastic Events.
