Market Gardener. Ah Go had a small plot on the 'lower reaches' of Tasman Street, Mount Cook, which had a small stream running through it. In 1890, Wellington City Council wanted to culvert the small stream that ran through his plot. Ah Go propsed to the Council that the stream could be shared, to benefit the community, as well as allow him to continue gardening on the plot. His suggestion was rejected, and he was paid £3 compensation in May 1891, so that work on the culvert could begin immediately [1]

Mr. Go's Modern Asian Hawker Restaurant, which opened in late 2016 on Taranaki Street, pays homage to Ah Go's desire for Western settlers and Chinese market gardeners thriving side-by-side.[2]
