Discover this garden in the heart of Auckland. Developed by volunteers, Eden Garden has become an award-winning destination with beautiful plant collections that always provide something in bloom.  Use of eco-friendly methods to control weeds encourages a thriving bio-diversity to encourage native fauna, geckos, wetas, insects and butterflies supported through a butterfly breeding programme.

Funding has been badly affected due to COVID-19 and we need support to keep our Garden open and ensure families can continue to celebrate the lives of loved ones.  Support can be given through garden entry, memorials, room hire and bequests.
