Meet at the parking area near the intersection of Serpentine Ave and Canongate.

You are warmly invited to join Miranda Bellamy, Amanda Fauteux, and Madison Kelly on a plant-focused loop walk. We will walk together as a group for approximately 45 minutes, briefly stopping at plants to kōrero about their lives and their stories.

The loop track is located in the park commonly known as 'Jubilee Park'. A pre-colonial name for the area between Belleknowes and Mornington, which would likely fall over the area of Jubilee Park, is 'Pokohiwi' meaning shoulder and provided in the book Māori Dunedin (1980). This book also offers the surrounding names Te Rara, meaning the rib, covering the hillside of the Southern Cemetery area and Te Au, meaning the mist, applied to the area above Arthur Street School.

This will be an all weather event, so please dress accordingly and wear robust footwear that you don’t mind getting a little muddy. The path we will take is mostly unpaved bush tracks and there will be some slight changes in elevation. Please visit accessibel to view more information about the terrain. Hot soup and a warm drink will be shared at the conclusion of the walk.
