The Friendship Garden is in a corner by the New Lynn Community Centre. It is well maintained, even though we had a long and dry summer, and the rainwater barrel is undoubtedly dry. When I visited the other day, I found this lineup of stones – I wonder what they were counting.
A few months ago I spoke to some of the people working in the garden. They are members of the local Chinese community. New Lynn is one of the suburbs with a high proportion of Asian population.
