Garden Volunteers

If you would like to join the team working tirelessly to put this wonderful event on then we would love to hear from you!


Every garden in the festival requires at least two volunteers to ‘look after’ the garden and be stationed at a table at the entrance to each garden.


You will be required to put on your best smile and welcome visitors to the gardens, check/issue wristbands, collect/sell tickets, hand out programmes and generally be a fabulous ambassador for the festival.


We have two shifts per day in each garden each day – Saturday morning 9.30am – 1pm, Saturday afternoon 12.45 – 4.30pm, Sunday morning 9.30am – 1pm, and Sunday afternoon 12.45 – 4.30pm.

On arrival you will be able to meet the designer and walk around the garden and as a thank you for your help you will be given a ticket to visit one other garden in the festival of your choice.

Do it with a friend or meet somebody new! Choose the suburb or the designer you’d like to be with, the day or time that suits you best and get in touch with us. We’d love to hear from you.

Please use our form below to apply, or email our volunteer coordinator Deb Hardy, Vice-President GDSNZ, Joint-Chair Auckland Garden DesignFest on
