Join the Friends

...& help the Garden grow!

The Friends of the Cambridge University Botanic Garden was started over 30 years ago and the aims of this vibrant support organisation remain the same: to support and champion the Garden and its work.
As a Friend, you will be able to enjoy this 40-acre haven, as often as you wish, without paying any further admission charges. You will receive invitations to join trips to other gardens, to come to lectures given by specialists in their field, and enjoy exclusive and out-of-hours social events.

We will keep you up-to-date through three newsletters each year full of pertinent Garden news and you can also sign up to receive twice-monthly email bulletins detailing what’s looking great and what’s in flower in the Garden to help you plan your next visit. We hope that, as a Friend, you will also be encouraged to get more involved through volunteering, perhaps with guiding or helping with education workshops.

Most importantly, as a Friend, you will be supporting one of the world’s leading botanic gardens in its vital research, education, horticultural and conservation work.
