Work at the Barrocal Botanic Garden

Summer 2020

During the last couple of months, we have managed to proceed with work outdoors at the Barrocal Botanic Garden:

The new Car Parking area has now been created. An area in the centre of the 2.3 ha of land we are able to use has been cleaned, levelled, compacted and a new gravel surface created. This is easily accessible from the road into QdF and will create a welcome area for events and visitors away from the Quinta itself. New notice boards and direction signs will be added soon.

A new pathway has been also added within the Barrocal Botanic Garden area to give easier access to the land immediately below the garden area that has already created. This will allow the space dedicated to the demonstration of Barrocal native plants to be extended. A gravel surface will be added to this pathway shortly.

Fundraising Update …

In line with the direction agreed at our AGM in March, we have now started to develop our Fundraising infrastructure. This has become even more important, as we had to cancel the 2020 Spring Garden Fair, one of our two major fundraising events this year.

New Support Us pages have been created on the web site, showing the ways that  individuals can do this. This includes the already important Membership and Book Sales options, but also a new one to simplify how you can make a one-off Donation

Two new methods have also been introduced:

- There is now the possibility for individuals to create a lasting legacy in their wills that will benefit MGAP into the future with a long term recognition of their support

- There is also a new way in which companies or other organisations who are aligned with our objectives can support us whilst aligning themselves with MGAP.

This is the new Corporate Supporter

Should you have any questions or queries about these options, please do contact us at mgaptreasurer@gmail.com.

If you know anyone or a business who may be interested, please do let them know


We will try to reschedule events that we had to cancel this year and publish them as soon as we have more details
