Become a member of a vibrant group with a common interest in developing this landmark site into ‘a new generational botanic experience’. It’s a great way to make new friends, learn about the gardens and enjoy some physical exercise at the same time.

There are roles for people of all ages and abilities. We need people who can promote the gardens, help with catering, take tours, manage archives, take photos, grow plants…the list is endless.

Join us for our regular working bees – Norma’s sandwiches are legendary! We also run regular propagation days, so come along and learn techniques and tips for growing your plants, stay up to date with our regular newsletter and Facebook page.

Not into the physical side of gardening, recently we have been host to other Friends groups, these get togethers are wonderful social opportunities to meet up with interesting and diverse groups of people from around the state.
