Membership Levels

From Student, Individual, Senior and Family memberships to Patron, Sponsor and Life memberships, we have a level of membership that fits you. Friends memberships are one year in length, and because we are a 501(c)(3) organization, your membership is tax deductible. All memberships support the State Botanical Garden of Georgia.

Programs, Tours and Events

Friends members gain more than just the satisfaction of supporting the Garden. Friends have access to member-only plant sales, and can participate in Friends road trips to private gardens and attractions such as the Biltmore Estate and Callaway Gardens. The Friends also host an annual meeting, a key feature of which is a “Garden Celebrity” who inspires Friends to get out and play in their gardens.

Discounts at this and other Gardens

Membership does have its privileges. Our members receive discounts on most of the Garden Events, Classes, and Sales. There are also discounts available in our Garden shop, Donderos’ Kitchen at the Garden, and some Athens area home and Garden centers! Friends memberships are good for discounts at many other gardens as well. Our participation in The American Horticultural Society Reciprocal Garden Program allows you to receive various discounts at many other gardens across the United States when you present your Friends membership card.
