Martineau Gardens, where people, plants and wildlife meet

Become a Friend of Martineau Gardens.

It costs £250 a day to keep the Gardens open.

This is why:

We run a Therapeutic Horticulture programme for volunteers (many of who have mental health issues and learning disabilities); provide education sessions for Birmingham school children on science, nature and other topics; grow organic produce and inspire others to grow too; conserve a wildlife habitat in our SLINC status woodland and look after the beautiful landscape here to provide a tranquil place for Birmingham people to visit.

We rely on:

  • Grants from Charitable Trusts
  • Income from events, venue hire, plant and produce sales
  • And the generous donations of people, like you, who want to ensure the Gardens are open for all to enjoy.

Please become a regular giver to Martineau Gardens by becoming a Friend of the Gardens.

 When YOU become a Friend …

  • you become a member which means you can vote on decisions at the AGM
  • get free entry to the Gardens’ Spring & Autumn events
  • receive our quarterly newsletter
