Would you like to spend more time in the Gardens? There are many opportunities for Friends to volunteer at the ANBG, varying from hands-on activities such as plant propagation or participating in the plant stocktake, to guiding visitors around the gardens on foot or in Flora Explorer, to participating in social activities to raise money to support the Gardens, and many more. Read on to discover what the Friends got up to behind the scenes in the last year, and how you can become involved.
Helping the Gardens Grow
We are a diverse group of people who love and support our beautiful Gardens – the world’s largest collection of Australian native plants. We have an extensive program of talks, visits and social events. There are many opportunities for members and visitors to meet, learn, grow and enjoy the riches of this very special place. This website will help you find events that most interest you.
We were formed in 1990 as a community support group for the Gardens. Since then we have raised and spent around $3/4 million on projects in the Gardens and now have 1700 members. And we support the Gardens in many other ways, such as leading guided walks to show visitors the wonders of the Gardens, and hands on support of research programs.
