Dale and John's garden is one of 23 fabulous gardens featured in the Heroic Gardens Festival 2011.

Auckland’s biggest, most popular and only region-wide exhibition of privately owned gardens showcases gardens with a difference. Primarily a sub-tropical summer festival, there are strong showings of bromeliads, palms and cycads in both suburban, inner city and rural gardens. Also included are organic, perennial borders, farm, orcharding and formal gardens. The fact that all gardeners involved in the event identify as gay or lesbian gives a particular nuance to the event that makes it different from all other gardening events. Additionally, in this festival the owners are also the gardeners and they are on-hand to talk to visitors throughout the weekend.

All proceeds from this charitable fundraising event will go to the Hospices of Auckland. This beneficiary has been chosen by the gardeners. We hope that you will support this event and celebrate our gardens with us over the weekend of the Festival.
