Māori gardens

This is a sketched reconstruction of Māori gardens near the mouth of the Washpool River in southern Wairarapa, about 600–700 years ago. The forest had been cleared from the river flats, and stone walls were built to provide shelter and divide the land for growing kūmara (sweet potato).
