We are excited to announce our new Garden to Table Ambassador, landscape designer Dan Mackay.
Dan is one of New Zealand’s most renowned landscape designers, most recently known for his appearance as resident landscape and gardening expert on TVNZ’s
home and garden makeover reality series HOMEmade.
For the past 15 years, Dan has brought his wild ideas to life, all of which are unique and tackled with true enthusiasm. Originally from Timaru, Dan travelled the world before settling in Auckland to study horticulture, landscape design and construction. Nowadays, his talent and passion has made him a household name to many. Dan turned his passion in to a career with the launch of his business Ministry of Ground – an Auckland landscaping solutions company that aims to take a different perspective on landscaping its works renowned for being a beautiful collision between art and practicality.
Dan loves to push the boundaries of landscape design with his innovative ideas. However, his dedication to sustainability is what sets him apart from the
rest. His landscape designs encourage customers to sustain not only themselves but the environment.
In his spare time Dan loves to skateboard with his five children, and tend to his own vegetable garden.
Dan joins existing Garden to Table Ambassadors, Al Brown, and Niki Bezzant, and we are delighted that Dan has agreed to generously donate his time as a Garden to Table Ambassador, despite a hectic work and filming schedule. He has already been a huge hit with students when visiting Garden to Table schools!
