Educational Programmes

Educational Activities at Earthtalk

Tanya and Charmaine are commited to life-long learning themselves, and every day learn something new or share knowledge with guests and workers.

We can organise appropriate learning opportunities for students of organic horticulture and sustainable land management.  We continue to support a range of community members and others who seek help with personal, family and employment issues, or with strategies for institutional change.

During the last few years, we have run a variety of workshops here, usually at the request of particular groups, on food processing, land development, Treaty of Waitangi, leadership and mentoring.  Charmaine is available for speaking, broadcasting, mediation and facilitating organisational change.

We’re very flexible in what we can offer – if you think we might be useful to you, talk to us: Tanya or Charmaine at 09-2351375; earthtalk@awhitu.co.nz
