Just to clarify is it a traditional samoan umu or maori hangi? while they are similar methods of an earth oven the food added can vary. Thanks and we look forward to joining at the events.

Thanks for your comment.
It will be a maori hangi. Make sure you have booked with Cheryl at the Permaculture Trust if you are planning to go.
