Friends of the GC Regional Botanic Gardens

“Friends” undertake many honorary activities to promote and support the Gardens by conserving the regional native plants to increase the biodiversity of the region. They are advocates and partners. Their roles include leadership and inspiring the community, planning, planting, propagating and gardening.  They also keep busy fundraising, coordinating events, education and visitors services such as guiding and children’s programs.

Friends are involved in a range of technical aspects as well.  These include assisting with Plant Collections, Records and the Herbarium. They are also involved with creative activities like arts and crafts and floral arranging using Australian native plants.
