Friends of the Barnhill Rock Garden
The F.B.R.G .welcomes new members, their friends and the local community to its gardening team, talks and summer visits. Various visits are provided in the garden for schools and nurseries e.g. Barnhill Holiday Club, Eastern primary and Frances Wright School. Recycling and composting of garden waste, nesting boxes, red squirrel feeders and a 'bug hotel' show the group’s desire to aid conservation. Each year the Friends undertake to improve part of the garden. A fernery has been established and Friends propagate plants in the nursery for use in the garden. Surplus plants are sold to augment funds.
In 2018, Friends of the Barnhill Rock Garden was awarded a Certificate of Distinction to further recognise the groups' achievements.
