A Māori Food Sovereignty Handbook

By Jessica Hutchings

Māori food sovereignty is the practice of ensuring food-secure futures for whānau, independent of multinational and national food systems and in harmony with Te Ao Tūroa (the natural world). It is about whānau having access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food that is produced locally and free from chemicals, pesticides and genetic modification.
Award winner: Best non-fiction book ~ Māori book awards 2016


“Food sovereignty begins in seed sovereignty…It grows from the land and its biodiversity. Growing food is growing diversity and freedom, it involves rejuvenating the seed and the soil, it rejuvenates culture and community. In Te Mahi Māra Hua Parakore Jessica Hutchings shows how to grow food sovereignty. Read it, share it, live it”.

Resilience & Regeneration

Our veges are grown locally on our farm with no harmful sprays/chemicals inside our greenhouse, or outside in one of our classic 25m long garden beds. Happy herds of sheep, cows, and chickens are grazed in the pastures nearby, working as part of a regenerative system that nourishes the underground soil microbes, and giving back to Papatūānuku.
