Kaitiakitanga: The Maori Concept of ‘Guardianship’ in Regenerative Agriculture

Kaitiaki Farm is an exemplar permaculture farm outside Whanganui, New Zealand. The worn out former horse property prone to erosion and slips is being transformed into a resilient, productive organic farm offering high quality food to the local community and world-class education programs. The work is guided by the Maori concept of ‘guardianship’ – Kaitiakitanga.
