Welcome to Friends of Geelong Botanic Gardens

The Friends support and promote the Geelong Botanic Gardens and Eastern Park by providing volunteers who facilitate the Gardens’ Guiding Program and Garden related information, hands-on Gardeners, the Friends' Plant Sale Nursery, Friends’ Library, and an annual program of events for members and the public.

 

Friends of Geelong Botanic Gardens Gift Fund is registered with the Australian Taxation Office to receive donations, which are tax-deductible. This Fund may only be used to support special projects and programs within, and initiated by, Geelong Botanic Gardens. It may not be used to support the Friends or Friends activities.

 

The Friends also manage the Geelong School of Botanical Art where classes and workshops are facilitated at the rear of the Gardens.
