Connecting Friends of Botanic Gardens groups around the UK

The Friends of Botanic Gardens Forum (FBGF) was set up in 2019 as an association to bring Friends groups around the UK into closer contact with each other to share experience.  The Forum recognises that each of the Friends groups operate within different working, financial and management arrangements at their own locations, all have similar aims.

Aims and objectives

Our aims and objectives are to:

  • support the wider interest of Botanic Gardens
  • encourage information exchange and sharing of experiences
  • engage with the international family of Botanic Gardens
  • share experience of funding opportunities
  • organise seminars that support Friends groups and Botanic Gardens activities
  • foster a skills-sharing network between Friends of Botanic Gardens.

We currently have twenty members around the UK.
