Māori medicines take root in school's

'living classroom'

Students at a Manawatū high school are learning about traditional Māori medicinal plants by growing them first hand.

Rain didn’t dampen the spirits of about 20 students of Feilding High School who put on their gumboots, took up shovels and braved the wet on Wednesday to plant rare native medicinal plants in their school reserve.

It is part of a project being rolled out by native forest restoration advisor and conservationist Gavin Scott to develop a rongoā (traditional Māori medicine) area at the school reserve.
