OGV was launched in 2015 and is a not-for-profit organisation that opens beautiful private gardens for the community to enjoy. We actively promote the benefits of gardens and gardening and support horticultural, educational and community projects through our Giving program. Some of the proceeds from our garden openings are donated to various charities, of a garden owners choice.
