Wheelchair accessible garden tours

From Afternoons, 1:15 pm on 25 November 2022

Being wheelchair friendly isn't always a consideration on a garden tour  but it's something organisers of this weekend's Auckland Garden DesignFest are out to change.

They've introduced a traffic light system for the 18 professionally-designed private gardens which will be on display, to let wheelchair users know just how accessible they are.

And for the first time the tour will include a very special garden created specifically with wheelchair access in mind.

Debbie Hardy is the Chief Organiser of Garden DesignFest, she talks to Jesse.
