Kakano Cafe and Cookery School
Date: October 2015
Our Role: Site access and landowner negotiations
Kakano’s goal was to bring healthy and nutritious kai to the people of Otautahi. They celebrated the whenua /land, culture, education opportunities, community and most importantly whanau/family. Kakano had the belief that food can heal, and sharing it together can heal us as a community.
A cookery school was located within the café and was transformed in the evenings and weekends to cater for basic to skilled cooking abilities. Kakano also ran seminars, workshops, te reo lessons, and hosted guests to showcase what community has to offer.
