There are a range of ways to support the Gardens:

Alpine Garden Development Fund

This fund has been established in honour of Roger Good.

In October 2015 the Gardens opened a special fund in honour of Roger Good, alpine ecologist and long-time supporter of the Gardens, for the development of an Alpine Garden. Online donations made from October to December 2015 or donations using the attached form will be directed towards this fund.

Australian alps conservation is of national significance, and the National Alpine Garden project will make a long term contribution to alps conservation and education of this special ecosystem. The National Alpine Garden project will be unique in Australia and provide a range of outcomes relating to education, research and conservation of alps ecosystems.
