The landscaped gardens are maintained by a dedicated group of volunteers, known as The Friends of Moorbank, while University Ground Staff help with maintenance of lawns and hedges. The friends meet every day throughout the week, and everyone is welcome to join. The friends are responsible for the organisation of the National Garden Scheme (NGS) open days, which is in support of Cancer Nursing Charities. Some friends specialise in the cultivation and continuing development of areas within the glasshouse complex. If you would like to learn more about becoming a friend, please contact us.
