These words come from an article in the Saturday Press 5th March 2011... by gardener... I have adopted them as my Gardener's Prayer.
May our new inner-city have many, many trees
Parks on every block
Wide river banks
Allotments for the inhabitants (of low wooden buildings)
to grow their own fruit, flowers and vegetables
May it not only become the finest eco-city in the world
But may Christchurch's title of "Garden City"
be truly warranted
