about us

The Australian Garden Council was launched at Parliament House in Canberra, on November 25th 2015, prompted by a number of federal MP's to promote gardening and gardens across the nation. The profile of gardening has been too low for too long. Until November 2015, gardening had not been mentioned in our national parliament for more than 25 years, despite being a more popular pastime than anything else across the country.


  • Improving awareness and participation in gardening, particulary among young people
