The Cranbourne Friends exist to support the Cranbourne Gardens, Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, by undertaking voluntary tasks and organising activities which enhance community understanding and appreciation of the Cranbourne Gardens, Australian flora and fauna, and generate funds to support Gardens’ projects.
With the retirement of some long-standing and dedicated committee members, the Friends Committee is seeking new volunteers to take over these roles. At the same time, the Committee is taking the opportunity to simplify administration by introducing, in the foreseeable future, appropriate electronic packages and systems that address accounting, bookkeeping and membership functions. If you have skills or experience in the following areas and are interested in joining our volunteer team to assist in the organisation of Friends activities, we would love to hear from you.
