Corporate Support

We welcome the opportunity to work with the corporate sector wherever possible. A major collaboration with local company, Donarbon, has seen the successful redevelopment of the Glasshouse Range to explore the drama of plant diversity. Support from law firm, Mills & Reeve, enabled us to begin work on a special Schools’ Garden.
These collaborations not only involve financial support, but can actively involve the company’s employees in the project through volunteering and work days. To discuss a potential collaboration please contact the Development Officer via our Enquiry Point during Monday-Friday office hours (9am-1pm / 2-4.30pm) by telephone on 01223 336265, or by email at

The Garden also offers a Corporate Friends scheme. For an annual subscription, the Corporate Friend enjoys advance news of events and activities at the Garden, benefits from special Corporate Friends events and receives a designated number of admission cards for their staff to use to gain entry to the Garden. We know that Corporate Friends admission cards are well-used, and the benefits of a burst of fresh-air and exercise during the working day are well-attested.

Annually, the Corporate Friends make a valuable contribution to supporting the work of the Botanic Garden through patronage of the Corporate Friends scheme. To join, please download the Application Form to the left, or request an application form via our Friends Office by email at
