As nepa, Jerry Norman (Te Rarawa) recalls his mother as a provider for her whānau. He had twelve brothers and sisters whilst their whānau took in nine children as whāngai. At one stage he remembers over twenty five people in their whare in Ngataki.

Utilizing the taiao to provide and sustain the whānau without a overwhelming need to rely on supermarkets. Norman says "we need to revive those traditions of growing kai for sustainability."
