Whether you become an active member or simply wish to support Ventnor Botanic Garden, your membership of Ventnor Botanic Garden Friends’ Society for a modest annual fee will help the Society in its work with the Garden.
As the Community Interest Company seeks to cover the costs of running the Garden with income from entry fees, we plan to focus more on education, while continuing to give money for buying plants and other projects approved by our executive in accordance with the aims of our Constitution.
The current individual membership rate (valid until end of 2014) is £15 per annum. Discounted rates apply for couples and junior members.
