2023 Become a friend social

Being a Friend of OGV links you to a network of fellow garden lovers by offering opportunities to come together with the ‘OGV family’.

As a friend you will receive two-for-the-price-of-one entry garden passes to two gardens, and a discount card to some of Melbourne/Victoria's most prominent nurseries both suburban and regional (see list below). You will also be invited to become involved in the many and varied aspects of the opening of gardens, organisation of events, assisting at plant fairs, garden shows, etc.

By becoming a Friend of OGV you will be helping us with our running costs and to maintain our giving program.

We aim to gift around $45,000 each year from funds generated by our activities and Friends’ subscriptions.


Annual Friendship Subscription fee is $35 expiring on 30 June each year.*

* Subscriptions received from April to June in any year will expire on 30 June in the following year.
