Support the Hortus

Adopt

Adopt

In our adoption program, you can support the Hortus in your own way. The Hortus is an independent foundation. As one of the highlights of Amsterdam , the Hortus receives support from the municipality of Amsterdam. In addition, the Hortus depends on its own income from activities and donor donations. For this we have developed an adoption program.

Care for education - adopt a school visit

Education is one of the main tasks of the Hortus. We offer different educational programs for primary and secondary education. The Hortus believes that every child should have access to nature education and with that grow awareness of the importance of biodiversity for the world.

Unfortunately, not every school in Amsterdam has the resources  to visit our garden.  (Too) often we receive messages from disappointed schools and teachers, that  tell us they do not have the resources to finance or to organize a visit. Therefore, we now offer  the possibility to adopt a full school visit. With this program we hope to provide all schools the opportunity to incorporate a visit to the Hortus in their school curriculum.

For €600, – you can adopt a school visit to the Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam.

The class will get:

  • Transport to and from the school and the Hortus.
  • Access (for students and supervisors) to the garden.
  • Assistance during the visit in the Hortus.
  • Materials for use in the Hortus and in the classroom.

For more information, please contact us by E-mail.

The Hortus is a Public Benefit Organisation. Donations to the Hortus can provide additional tax benefits for both individuals and businesses.

Care for remembrance - adopt a bench

Adopting a Bench is a great way to support the Hortus. In our greenhouses and the outdoor garden, we have 28 benches for our visitors. Surrounded by our flora, you can experience the peace and tranquillity of the Hortus, enjoy the first sunshine in spring, or just have a pleasant conversation.

Honour a family member, a loved one, a friendship or an event by adopting a bench at our garden. There are several existing benches available to choose from. When you adopt one, a beautiful plaque recognizing your generous donation will be installed at your bench.

Adopting a bench costs €1250,- euro for a period of ten years.

Care for green - adopt a tree

As a company, you can adopt a tree at the Hortus to support us in maintaining and looking after our plant collection. Our Tree Adoption Program offers a great opportunity to show your corporate social responsibility.

The Hortus’s garden and greenhouses hold around 4,000 different plant species from all over the world.  A lot of our plants have their own, unique background story. Some of these can be seen during one of our routes through the garden. For more stories about our different plant species, see [collection].

We will surely find you plant species that beautifully fits your product, company name or even philosophy. We are happy to help you with the selection of the tree or plant. More stories about plants can be found on our website under collection.

After adopting one of our trees at the Hortus, you will receive a certificate to put on display at your company’s office. In addition, we will put up a sign with your company’s name and / or logo next to the plant you’ve adopted.

You will receive a Company Year Card to visit the tree with your employees and / or business relations. This card also grants you a 10 percent discount when booking our Oranjerie venue.

Care for sustainability - Adopt a container

The Hortus collection contains a large number of  (sub)tropical container plants. In the summer they are exhibited throughout the garden. In winter they have to stay inside. These plants and trees ask for sturdy containers. For years, the typical Hortus containers are provided by Jac Blom. Recently, this company started making containers out of Accoya® wood. The Hortus strives to replace all present containers with these Accoya® versions. You can help the Hortus reach this goal!
Accoya® is modified timber in which a process called acetylation, a cutting-edge patented technology, enables it to it resist rot, defy the elements and stay strong for decades. With the adoption of a containerplant in the Hortus, you not only invest in the maintenance of the Hortus collection, you also invest in nature, sustainability and the environment around us.

You can adopt a container from € 500, – per year for a minimum period of three years.
After adopting one of our containers, you will receive a certificate to put on display at your company’s office. In addition, we will put up a sign with your company’s name and / or logo ont the container  you’ve adopted. You will receive a Company Year Card to visit the tree with your employees and / or business relations. This card also grants you a 10 percent discount when booking our Oranjerie venue.
