|Your membership in the non-profit organization called the Friends of the Summerland Research Station Gardens is a critical part of keeping the Summerland Ornamental Gardens a vibrant and inspiring place to visit. Members are the backbone of this group, joining or supporting a dedicated group of volunteers who augment the two seasonal gardeners. The combination of members, volunteers and employees all working together has provided a team that has continually brought the Gardens to higher levels.
Annual Memberships in the Friends of the Gardens (FOG) is $25 for individuals and $40 for families. There is also a Sustaining Business Membership of $100/year, and a Life Membership for a one-time payment of $750.00.
Knowing that you've helped maintain the Gardens is just one part of your
membership. Each year members are invited to the Annual General Meeting, where, surrounded by other keen gardeners or aspiring gardeners, birders, and outdoors enthusiasts, a knowledgeable speaker brings a wealth of inspiring visions and ideas to the attendees.
In addition there are other special events and volunteer opportunities, including the annual Spring Planting day, Weeding Wednesdays, Plant Sale discounts, and invitations to other special events.
Members also receive the Friends of the Gardens Newsletter, highlighting new happenings in the Gardens as well as ideas that can be useful in your own garden, provided by the many experts who are already a part of the Friends.
