Mangakahia Garden Ramble

This local community fundraising event is organised and run by the Complex Committee biannually with the last event being held on Sunday 21st November 2021.

NEXT EVENT: November 2023

The funds raised go towards the ongoing maintenance and development of the Complex to continue to meet the needs of the local community of the Mangakahia Valley and beyond.

Approximately 10 local gardeners open their gardens up for the day offering information, entertainment and inspiration for the home gardener. A great day out for all ages.
