Gathering harakeke

We have been learning about the tikanga for gathering harakeke. We know about leaving the whānau in the middle of the bush and how to cut the outside leaves correctly to look after the plant. Here we are gathering harakeke yesterday. We are going to dry it and use it to bind together the fence for our pa, just like in the olden days.


  1. I look forward to seeing your harakeke on your class pa!

  2. Kia ora Mr Roberts we are nearly finished it cant wait until it is done
