Friends of RBGE Committees
All Members of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh are seen as Friends of the Botanics and the local Committees of the four Gardens act on behalf of all Friends in supporting our work. The primary responsibility of these Committees is to organise and run a programme of events with the following aims:
- to ensure the continuing engagement of Friends with RBGE
- to generate income in support of the work of RBGE
- to raise the profile of RBGE and encourage increased recruitment to Membership
Events include monthly coffee mornings, evening talks, tours to other gardens in the UK and overseas and special guest lectures. They also run plant creches at Gardening Scotland and the annual Photography Competition.
The income raised from these events supports many projects in the gardens that would otherwise not happen.
If you are interested in finding out more about volunteering with your local Friends' Committee or would like to help at events please contact the Membership Office on 0131 552 5339 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
