Friends of Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Garden
Since 1986 Friends have played a vital role in supporting the development of the Garden.
Friends and Council have built a strong partnership that has seen the Garden grow to become the vibrant and popular attraction it is today.
The relationship between Friends and Council has evolved over decades. During the early days Friends were very 'hands on’ and now they provide more of a support and promotion role. This support can range from involvement in special project working groups and event committees, to preparing grant applications and securing millions of dollars in funding.
Friends care about the Garden, its members and volunteers. They provide regular newsletters, social opportunities and volunteer support.
The Garden is also involved in a conservation partnership with other botanic gardens. The partnerships focus on threatened species found within the southeast corner bioregion. These partnerships include:
- Wollongong Botanic Gardens
- Booderee Botanic Garden
- National Botanic Garden.
Forestry Corporation of NSW
Forestry Corporation of NSW (Forestry) have been committed partners to the Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Garden Project since it started in 1987. It was at this time Forestry provided the 42-hectare part of Mogo State Forest to Eurobodalla Shire Council (Council) to develop a botanic garden.
In more recent years, the partnership has grown. Forestry has made a significant contribution to major Garden projects, which include:
- the barbecue pavilion
- Forest Children’s Walk
- staff and volunteer amenities
- annual sponsorship of our photographic competition and fundraising calendar.
Forestry generously continues to provide the site to Council under an occupation permit. This agreement benefits our community because it provides:
- a significant regional botanical collection for everyone to enjoy
- the conservation and preservation of our regional flora.
