The Rotary Clubs of Kew, Brighton North and Central Melbourne are the proud organisers of Garden DesignFest. Our aim is to raise much needed money for selected charities and to encourage creative, bold, innovative, versatile, practical, and responsible gardening in Australia.

Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million people who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.

For more than 110 years, Rotary members have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects.  Rotary’s 35,000+ clubs worldwide work to:

• Promote peace
• Fight disease
• Provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene
• Save mothers and children
• Support education
• Grow local economies

In Australia, Rotary celebrated its first 100 years of service in 2021. From the first two Rotary clubs created in Melbourne and Sydney in 1921, Australia now has some 1100 clubs with 30 000+ members.

Whatever your age or interest, your time, energy, and willingness to improve your world are all you need to get involved in Rotary. Connect with a local Rotary club to find more or check out the websites of the Garden DesignFest organising clubs – Kew, Brighton North and Central Melbourne.

Acknowledgement of Country
In the spirit of reconciliation Rotary acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
