This year’s Garden Safari

The New World Kerikeri Rotary Garden Safari has been postponed to 20/21 November 2021

Kerikeri Rotarians are disappointed to announce that their annual fundraising event, The New World Kerikeri Rotary Garden Safari has been postponed to 20/21 November 2021, brought about by the heavy rain before and over last weekend. This has presented many challenges with parking, access and the rain damage to many gardens.

The long-range weather forecast sees settled weather ahead to allow the ground to dry out and for gardeners to rescue their displays.

The owners of one property have reluctantly had to withdraw from this year’s event, but there will   still  be 15 gardens for attendees to look at. The organisers hope that locals rally around to support the event on the new date, as the profit is used by the Rotary Club of Kerikeri for its work in the community, particularly with the schools/young people.

The efforts of the gardeners have been excellent and the Club recognises the work that has gone in to present a great selection of gardens for this year’s Garden Safari, and we acknowledge their extended commitment to presenting their properties for you to enjoy.

Tickets are still on sale at New World and 8 other sales points in Kerikeri as per the list on www gardensafari.co.nz. You can contact the club via the website, “contact us”
