22 October 2022, NZ: The trophy recognises excellence in Māori horticulture and is open to individual Māori running horticultural operations, as well as other entities such as Māori trusts and incorporations.
“What a great privilege it is for the horticulture industry to be associated with the Ahuwhenua Trophy, and showcase the tremendous mahi that Māori are doing to further our industry, as well as their own iwi and whānau,” says HortNZ President, Barry O’Neil.
“The inaugural 2020 horticulture competition highlighted an intrinsic commitment to the whenua, awa and people. I look forward to the coming year as once again, we work together to promote passion and good practice, as the kaitiaki of Aotearoa.”
Ahuwhenua Trophy Management Committee Chair, Nukuhia Hadfield says for the finalists there is not only the prestige of winning the competition but the added benefits of high-quality feedback they receive on their enterprises.
Entries for the Ahuwhenua Trophy close 5pm, Friday 9 December 2022
