The Auckland Garden DesignFest (AGDF) is a biennial event initiated by the Society and run as a joint venture with the Rotary Club of Newmarket. Its purpose is to showcase the work of garden designers and to raise funds for three children’s charities. Gardens featured in the DesignFest which were designed by members of the Society are profiled here. In some cases other members had considerable design input e.g. lighting or plant design.

The third Auckland Garden DesignFest held on 14-15 November 2015 was a huge success. We are thrilled at all the positive feedback we received. You also helped us to substantially increase the amount raised for our charities. Thank you.

The next DesignFest will be held in November 2017 with dates announced nearer the time.
