Membership and Marketing

Join the Marketing Group. This group is just part of an exciting range of volunteer activities and events the Friends run for their members. The Friends support the Botanic Gardens providing financial and volunteer support for projects and events. Love the Gardens? Join the Friends! 

The Membership and Marketing Committee (M&M) of the Friends of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne is responsible for maintaining and increasing membership of the Friends and publicising Friends' events. This includes supplying the media with information about the Friends and their activities. The M&M also maintains the Friends' advertising pod in the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne Visitor Centre, keeping it up to date with posters about their forthcoming activities.

M&M committee members attend Friends' events to welcome attendees and help 'spread the word' about being a member. This includes the Friends' tent at Plant Sales (located in the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne) where friendly committee members hand out information about the Friends and help sell merchandise.

The M&M are also responsible for negotiating the large range of member benefits and organising the list of businesses who support the Friends by providing discounts.

The monthly eNews bulletin is issued by this committee and is a regular reminder of what's on plus special up to date member information and opportunities. The Facebook page and website are also maintained by this committee.
