What is Ventnor Botanic Garden Friends’ Society (VBGFS)?

VBGFS was formed about thirty years ago to support the aims of the Curator in providing additional funds for innovative planting and education at the Garden. VBGFS gained Charitable Status in 2000. This enables the Society to benefit from Gift Aid, thus raising more funds which go directly to the Garden to assist with the activities set out in their constitution (gardening tools, plants, apprentice training, school trips and work-based opportunities for adults with learning difficulties are amongst many current projects supported by the Friends).

The Garden receives no public funding so the Society’s work is invaluable in continuing to support educational and leisure opportunities for all sections of our community.

From £6 per person (min 12 people paying together). Pre-booked group entry with a guided tours available. Please enquire by calling 01983 855397.
