JOIN THE FRIENDS

Who are we?
The Friends of the Wellington Botanic Garden formed as an Incorporated Society in 1990 to promote and support the development of the Botanic Garden, to raise funds and support Garden projects, and to foster public interest in its educational, historical, cultural, recreational and scientific functions.

What we do
The Friends work as volunteers to guide walks and host events in the Garden, organise bulb sales, arrange lectures, social functions and displays of historic and heritage interest, maintain a register of the Memorials in the Garden, raise funds and assist Garden Management with a variety of Garden projects.

Main current projects are the installation of permanent downhill path markers made of New Zealand-designed glass ceramic mosaic pavers in a rata design, and provision of support for fund raising for the Children’s Garden, a major development currently under planning.

You’ll see footprints of the Friends around the Garden. Recent projects we have implemented include the placing of directional and interpretative signage in the native bush remnants, the renovation of the Joy Fountain, the provision of entrances to the Pinetum, the renewal of many of the path markers and the maintenance of the “butterfly garden” on Druid Hill.
