Meet Victor, he is one of the kaitiaki of Harania Stream in Māngere East. He has lived next to the stream since the 1970s and has seen a lot of changes over the years.
Victor is concerned about the impact the many changes happening in the area will have, but alongside ME Family Services, they are trying to preserve the stream. Go to mefsc.org.nz for more information.
Congratulations to Kelly Francis, the Whenua Warrior for winning a Kumara Award for her gardening initiatives.
