Sanctuary Garden  Waingawa Quarry, Masterton


In January 2010 I revisited a favourite past project – a Sanctuary Garden. Set in the midst of industrial mayhem at a Masterton quarry, the 20 m diam. circular design represents the elements Earth, Air, Fire and features a Living Stone Water Sphere. The garden was offered as conciliation for Mans’ plunder of the Waingawa River bank and now,10 years on, provides a place of peaceful tranquility and an obvious source of pride for quarry staff (and me :).

We all deserve a Sanctuary Garden, somewhere tucked away from prying eyes where we may quietly reflect, remember loved ones, read an uplifting book, or meditate in the nude if we so choose. The size and style matters not, only that it is your place of serenity and comfort.
