Get Involved

Share our passion for nature, help grow our Botanic Gardens, form new friendships or extend your own knowledge and understanding of the Plant world.

Get involved in a variety of ways - join the 'Friends of the Gardens', take part in guided walks and excursions, enjoy presentations and talks, participate in 'on the ground' planting, weeding and watering programmes and share a sense of accomplishment as we create green spaces for enjoyment by everyone, especially our children and grandchildren.
