The Gardener

The Pūkaha Wairarapa Garden Tour relies on a great crew of volunteers to ensure a safe, fun and successful experience for our garden tourers. It’s a wonderful opportunity to contribute to the event. 

Volunteers help with ticket checking, parking, and health and safety – all roles are based outside. A volunteer shift is four hours and in return, volunteers get free entry into the garden tour.  To sign up for a volunteer role register your interest here: https://wairarapagardentour.co.nz/volunteers/.
