Northland Society of Arts owns and operates out of Reyburn House, a category two historic listing and the oldest pioneer settlers house in Whangarei. Nearby is Riverside Art Studio, where various art classes are held. This Charity based society aims to promote visual art in Northland through exhibitions and training.
We are currently in need of people who love gardening. The gardens are well established and there is always work to be done; weeding, planting, watering and more. We have a large number of flowerbeds around the gallery and art studio. The Heritage Rose people are helping with the 100 roses on a regular basis but more support is needed.
You could join the other volunteers every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month (at 1.30pm) when the Heritage rose people are there gardening. The volunteer gardeners meet as well every 3rd Saturday of a month at 10am in the Reyburn House Gardens.
We’d love to have you join us!
