Amplify the good quality of life in your neighborhood today by contributing to our campaign to transform the Garden’s backyard” into a Grand Garden. In their formative years, botanical gardens have been gardens for physicians and botanists, but then they progressively became a lot more associated with ornamental horticulture and the requirements of the general public. Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria plays a major part in programs to conserve these endangered species in order to stabilise or boost populations in their natural habitat. Generally their volunteer activities at The Gardens include educating the public about Pollinator Conservation. The scientific reputation of a botanical garden is now judged by the publications coming out of herbaria and related facilities, not by its living collections.
