Friends of the University of Dundee Botanic Garden

Charity description

Friends of the University of Dundee Botanic Garden logo
The Friends supports Dundee University Botanic Garden by raising funds, promoting public awareness of the Garden's scientific role and providing a focus for informed discussion on matters of botanical interest.

The Friends was established in 1971. It is run entirely by volunteers. Its income comes from annual membership and other donations.

A twice yearly newsletter contains articles of botanical interest, including reports on special projects to which the Friends have contributed.

In return for their membership donation, Friends enjoy access to the Garden throughout the membership year (see below) and receive invitations to lectures, informal talks and excursions.

The membership year runs from 1 June and memberships fall due for renewal on 31 May each year.

Located in 9.5 hectares of south facing, gently sloping land in Dundee's west end by the River Tay, Dundee University Botanic Garden features many species of indigenous British plants as well as representative collections of important plants from all continents of the world. There is a visitor centre and cafe on-site.

Dundee University Botanic Garden is rated a "4 star" visitor attraction by Visit Scotland.

Charity No: SC011808
