Botanical Gardens.

The Friends of the Christchurch Botanic Gardens have been supporting the Gardens since 1989 undertaking activities and providing services that benefit the Gardens.

Friends are involved in a variety of activities including:

Volunteer guides, providing:

  • Daily walking tours of the Gardens starting from the Museum entrance. See tours for more information. 
  • Special interest tours or talks of the Gardens on one Saturday each month. See events for more information.
  • Special tours for groups by arrangement.

Propagation group
Teams of volunteers work in the Friends' glasshouse propagating plants.


Quarterly newsletters are published online highlighting plants and garden features of seasonal interest with contributions of an historic or general nature and comment from the Garden's Curator.

All funds raised by the Friends go towards special projects in the Gardens.
