Welcome to the Friends of the Christchurch Botanic Gardens, Canterbury, New Zealand website

The Friends of the Christchurch Botanic Gardens Inc is a group of people interested in supporting the Gardens (since 1989) and helping to make them a very special place.

We act as an advocate for the Gardens, we give tours daily (September to April), we lead guided walks and arrange talks for the Friends and members of the public.

We also have funds which we can use to support facilities and activities in the Gardens that would not be funded out of usual operational budgets.

Friends are involved in a variety of Projects and Activities including:

  • Horticultural and Conservation Information Hub
  • Volunteer guides
  • Propagation group
  • Regular meetings and outings
  • A quarterly Newsletter and programme of coming events.
    The newsletter gives an update of news about the Gardens and items of interest for plant and garden lovers.
