Magnolia Garden Open Days

37 Proctor Road, Poroti, Whangarei


Dates for 2024 to come.
Catherine and David Davies-Colley have again offered to open their magnificent Magnolia Gardens to the public this year to support the I Have a Dream Charitable Trust.
These extensive gardens are beautifully planted with hundreds of magnolia trees all of which will be in full flower at these open weekends. Come along and support the I Have a Dream Charitable Trust and help our year 13 Dreamers get to their trip of a lifetime to Rarotonga in 2023
The Gardener

I Have a Dream is designed to produce positive outcomes for the children involved, their whānau and the communities they live in. By offering the services of a consistent caring adult (a Navigator) for up to 15 years of their schooling life (within our Dream Partner Schools). Our Navigators provide mentoring, tutoring, life coaching and support for our Dreamers. We instil values of higher education, career aspirations and life success, and we ensure every child has the resources, opportunities and networks they need to succeed.
