Description:Audio recording and transcription/translation of Mary Clara explaining how to make a garden. Synopsis: If you want to make a garden you will tell your brothers and sisters and your mothers and fathers that you have some work to do. First you will go to the bush and make a clearing. On the first day you must clear the undergrowth, and the next day you can return and chop down all the big trees and cut them into small pieces. You must wait one or two months for the sun to dry all the vegetation and then you can go back and burn it so the area is totally cleared. Then you must go around to different villages and collect what you would like to plant in your garden, such as yam shoots and taro shoots. You will prepare food and take it to the garden and leave it in the shade of the trees. The men will dig and the women will plant. When night comes everyone will go home and if there is still more work to be done they will return the next day. Once all the planting is done you must wait however many months for each plant --- between six and nine months --- and when it is ready you will gather up your family again and take baskets to the garden to harvest the vegetables.
