The Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens was formed in the 1970s by a group of enthusiastic members who were passionate about the gardens. The Friends organise fundraising events to raise money for the gardens and support specific projects. The events, ranging from fashion shows to plant sales, have raised money to allow the Friends to complete the refurbishment of the lily pond in the glasshouses and install the fountain. Keep an eye on the events page for their upcoming events.
The Friends are a small committee that meet three or four times a year to discuss fundraising initiatives. They are always looking for enthusiastic members with new ideas. Members would be expected to support all of the upcoming.
If you are already a Member and would like to join our Friends please contact Rosemary Radford, Chair of the Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens.
