"The Friends of the Garden” is a registered charitable society founded in 1971 to support the development of the Garden. Since its founding, the Friends have contributed over $5 million to support development of the Garden’s plant collections, displays, facilities and education programs.

In recent years, Friends’ fundraising efforts have supported, among other projects: construction of an expansion to the Ozawa Pavilion Teahouse (the Ikoi no ba); upgrades to the Garden’s production greenhouses; brick pathway expansion; and support of the UABG's award-winning Green School program.
