Membership and Donations

Membership and Donations are two valuable ways to support the Summerland Ornamental Gardens and make sure they continue to be a vibrant and inspiring place to visit. The Gardens showcase the importance of ornamental horticulture, natural and man-made landscapes as well as heritage preservation in our communities. By becoming a member or making a donation, you keep us growing!


Members of the Friends of the Summerland Ornamental Gardens join and support a dedicated group of volunteers who augment the work of our two employed 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.

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.
