We are keen to help you reduce waste. Para Kore focuses on working with marae, but we also work with organisations, businesses, kohanga and kura. Email or ring us if you would like a short presentation.
Para Kore is about embracing our tikanga of caring for Ranginui and Papatūānuku. Para Kore kaupapa believes landfilling or burning rubbish from our marae is a waste of resources and is harmful to us all.
Para Kore supports marae using organic waste to regenerate Papatūānuku by making compost, creating healthy soils and growing our own kai.
