each garden and find out more about their design history and inspiration. This year, there is also the special 'Behind the Scenes Tour' at Amber Garden Centre.  This is an extra cost of $15 per person, and tickets are limited for each time slot.  These tickets can only be purchased on the website

The Gardener

The Rotary Club of Cambridge is part of Rotary International, an international service organisation.

The purpose of the club is to bring together business and professional leaders in order to provide humanitarian services, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and advance goodwill and peace around the world.  The members of the Rotary Club of Cambridge work together to provide in-person support, and also to raise funds to support these purposes, including the annual Bookarama, Charity Dinner, the Taste Waikato cookbook and the Rotary Cambridge Garden Festival.
