We are looking forward to hosting a variety of courses on site at Te Whare Oranga o Parakai in 2017. 

We will add course details to the website as they become available, so be sure to check our Classes page to find out what educational opportunities are being proposed. 

At this stage we'd love to hear from people interested in learning Te Reo Maori and Small Business Management.

South Kaipara Harvest & Artisan Christmas Market - Sunday 11 December 10am-1pm 

Stallholders and Performers Wanted! 

We're extending an invite to all local growers, food producers and craftspeople to book at stall at this week's Harvest Market at the special price of just $15. 

We'd also love to hear from performers who can provide entertainment to keep our market-goers in the festive spirit. 

Contact Market Organiser, Helen Frampton e: foodrevolution@thrivekaipara.org.nz or 09 420 2628. 

If you can't have a stall, then please come and enjoy the market atmosphere as you sample and stock up on locally made supplies and put a dent in your Christmas shopping! 

Our always popular Kids' Kitchen Classes are held during the market. There are three sessions at 9am, 10am and 11:30am. These classes fill quickly, so secure your child's spot early by emailing Keryn at kitchen@thrivekaipara.org.nz. From ages 3+, $5 each. This month we're making Candy Cane Truffles. 

During the market, our Te Whare Oranga manager and volunteers will be on hand to discuss upcoming courses and educational opportunities. If you are unable to get along to the Market but wish to explore educational opportunities at Te Whare Oranga this year, please contact the Manager on 09 420 9983 between 9am-1.30pm, Tuesday–Friday.
