As well as websites in Greek and French, The Mediterranean Garden Society, hosts two forums. The first forum is open to all; it deals with Mediterranean Gardening and Plants and has a wealth of useful information provided by experts and members alike. The second, the Members' Forum, for members only, is a place for members to discuss any topic of MGS interest, apart from gardening.

The Mediterranean Garden Society, a non-profit making association founded in Greece in 1994, acts as a focus for everyone who has a special interest in the plants and gardens of mediterranean climate regions. The society publishes a quarterly journal The Mediterranean Garden and maintains a garden just outside Athens on a property belonging to the Goulandris Natural History Museum and generously placed at our disposal. The aims of the MGS as set out in the Charter were deliberately drafted broadly to cover all possible directions that the society might wish to go in its life. The MGS is a Greek society with members in countries throughout the world, in many of which branches have been formed so that local members can meet for various activities.

Make a Donation.The MGS has always relied solely on its own resources and has never sought public aid or funding of any kind. In a world undergoing a profound crisis, it must adapt to the current situation while continuing to pursue its aims; this is why the Administrative Committe is turning to those who are the mainspring of our Society - in other words, our members themselves - so that those who wish to do so may support the MGS, each according to his or her ability. If you would like to make a donation to the Society, either when you are renewing your annual subscription or at any other time, you may do so using the online facility here.

Recently updated pages include Portugal Branch; Greek Branch; Southern California Branch; Northern California Branch; and MGS garden at Sparoza.
