Support an Appeal

We provide funds to support a number of the Gardens' projects. Some of these include: 

The Plant Pathology Laboratory Project. This will be transformative for The Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney and make science accessible to our annual 3.6 million visitors. The revitalisation of the Plant Pathology Laboratory and surrounding area will focus heavily on education and putting the extensive diagnostic work under the ‘microscope’ for guests of all ages; Donate online.
