Market Gardening in Lower Hutt

War Memorial Library Tuesday 26 March, 6:30pm

Lower Hutt was once a major source of fruit and vegetables for Wellington. Many gardens were in Naenae and Taita but in the 1940s they were taken for state housing.

Join our Local History Specialist Clark Stiles for a talk looking at how these changes affected the area.
