Annora : I am from Auckland and I always knew that the Chinese market gardeners grew most if our vegetables on the fertile hills just south of the city but I did not know the Gocks story of saving the kumara. And I did not know how recently the racist policies against the Chinese were law. What a loving, dedicated salt of the land couple.

mapOoni : Hahah Chinese people with New Zealand accent, absolutely charming.

Ale : Reminds me of Dr. Seuss

Via : I want someone to love me like that : *Lovely couple.* ♡♡♡ A good example for how people give back to society, when they are happy and passionate in their life.

nidia lopez : So adorable. I love this! And the way it was presented is very unique!

bow hunter : I'm a kiwi and grow my own veg backyard these people are awesome and as a native of Aotearoa these are the kind of people we do want here this makes me feel proud to see them do so well and live for the sake of living rather than working a desk job so to speak. my mum has 3000 acres here her and my brother farm sheep and cattle she is 90 just last month . she has had an incredible life and story of experience and knowlege .I am the youngest of 11 mum and dad have 29 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren . dad is 91 and still works 1 day a week as an accountant . just a thought if you are looking for your next story. lol. worth a try.😎

Onigbajamo : "Chinese people were not allowed to buy land..." I didn't know that. Would like to hear more about it.
