In 2015 The Dunedin Lebanese Community generously donated a gift to the Dunedin Public Libraries to establish a Digitisation Centre at the City Library and develop this archive ‘Scattered Seeds – He Purapura Marara’. Our aim in bringing you this site is to collect the memories, mementos and stories of the people – individuals, whānau/hapu, ethnic groups and cultures – fruits of the seeds scattered on the four winds from all over the world, that have landed here, taken root and come to call Dunedin home. This archive will develop and grow in perpetuity.
