Dynamic VLAN Registration Configuration

Want to build Network comprised of multiple VLANs spread across 3 different buildings via 6 managed gigabit switches, 1 at "core" & 5 "access" switches.  (5 access switches connect only to core switch, no direct connections to each other - think 'hub & spokes' physical topography).

Core switch is Cisco Catalyst 3560G which uses VTP for dynamic VLAN registration.
5 Access switches are not Cisco, use GVRP for dynamic VLAN registration.

Any configuration options to allow the passing of VLAN registration information dynamically?
(Or is my only option to upgrade the core switch to a model that also supports GVRP?)
