About Us

The Support Group of the Botanical Gardens of the Christian-Albrecht University in Kiel was founded as an association on April 21st 1996.

Since its foundation the association has actively developed countless projects in support of the Botanical Gardens.

In the year 2011/2012, with the assistance of the garden's workforce and with our financial support several building projects were made possible, such as a wooden pavilion and the Godwana and Loto Camelia showroom in the new main entrance. In addition "Way to America" section and a new playing area were finished in 2013.

Additionally comes the installation of a scientific databank and the support of the gardeners in the purchase of specialist scientific literature, the printing of information materials and the installation of glass display units, control panels, seating and other furnishings.

Alongside these first material acquisitions, two artistic works of the sadly deceased internationally recognised painter Pierre Schumann,  “Zwei Kämpfende Vögel” and “La Grande Madre” could be made.

Additionally the association has been able to organise for a number of years its own annual programme of artistic and cultural events that should draw visitors closer  to the Botanical Gardens.
