A Message of hope and TIPS from Aunty's Garden

Hi, I'm Aunty Hanui Lawrence. I am from Waipatu and I initiated Auntys Garden at our marae. I have been sharing my recipes with Ngāti Kahungunu Iwi Incorporated for nearly 6 years. I love gardening and cooking. My parents taught me and siblings how to work hard for what we have, and I have always been grateful for the legacy they left for us.


My husband George and our children and grandchildren and even the great grandchildren spend time with me in the garden. A group of dedicated people help to maintain the garden which is great. 

These are extraordinary times and being stuck at home can be quite stressful, especially if you're used to buying kai everyday for your meals. But it needn't be a time of struggle.


Here at Aunty's Garden we have seen our fresh produce fly out of the garden as whānau have gathered in their kai to stock up during these hard times. I want you to know that I am here to help you through. Don't worry. These recipes are all from things you might have in your garden. Stay well everyone, we will get through together. Scroll through some of my recipes to the left. 


Just remember to be kind to one another. 

Scroll down on some of my recipes below to see how easy it is to make a meal from your garden.
