VIDEO 1: Start growing your own Kūmara!

One of the final activities in our journey with Kiri, is to grow our own kūmara.

But we'll need to start growing our tipu (shoots) now, to be ready to plant at the end of October.


Check out how to grow you tipu first in the video below and we'll keep you updated along the way.
