The Society of Friends of the Hortus ‘Henricus Munting’ supports the Hortus Botanicus Haren financially. Since the University of Groningen (RUG) ended its financial contribution to the Hortus several years ago, the continued existence of the Hortus depends in part on this Society of Friends.
The support of this “fan club” involves activities related to the management and expansion of the plant collection, ecological outreach and the promotion of education. Also, the Friends contribute to projects to improve the infrastructure and the garden.
By becoming a member of the Friends Association, you contribute to the survival of the Hortus. The attractively priced membership has the benefit for you of free admission to the Hortus for an entire year; exceptions may be made only for “special” events.
Information about membership in the Friends Association and what you get for it can be found on the Friends of the Hortus website. You can also register there.
