Since its formation in 2014, the Friends of Abkhazi Garden Society has been helping to fund Garden-related projects, while keeping a watchful eye on this unique urban oasis.

In 2018, Friends bought a new chipper for the Garden, so that garden waste can be turned into nutrient-rich, water-conserving mulch for the garden beds. We also funded the building of a low dry-stone wall up the driveway.

In 2019, Friends plan to spend more than $5,000 on projects like rebuilding the alpine bed, as well as tools (including a much-needed leaf-blower), plants, bulbs, and lawn maintenance.

We invite you to become a member of the Friends, for a fee of $20 per year. Membership fees and donations help to support the Garden. Note that although the Society is a non-profit society, it can not give charitable receipts.

As a member, you’ll receive periodic news emails about activities at the Garden and will be invited to the Annual General Meeting in March and to other Garden-related events.

Please download, print, and drop off our Membership Form into the mailbox on the left side of the gate, or mail it to:

Membership Chair, Friends of Abkhazi Garden Society, 1515 Despard Avenue, Victoria BC V8S 1T2.
