Members of P.I.P.T.A (Primary Industries Polytechnic Tutors Association) visited the Hereweka property recently as part of their annual national conference. Over 40 conference delegates from around the country spent time on the Peninsula and the Harbour Cone property was organised as part of their field trip. The delegates all have roles in teach primarily horticulture and agriculture in polytechnics throughout New Zealand. The field trip was an opportunity for the delegates to learn more about the property as both a working farm and as an important cultural and ecological restoration area in the region. The delegates were impressed and this was helped by a sweltering hot day that made Hereweka and the Peninsula really shine.
