The Friends

The Friends of the Botanic Garden of Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz were founded in November 1998.

The association's goal is to support the garden ideally and financially. It has the status of a non-profit organization.

The Friends are responsible for garden tours for the general public and organize events at the Botanic Garden, such as the Summer Fest, Tropical Night, and the Concert Evening.

It supports the garden's public relations work by printing brochures and leaflets and provides visual aids, exhibit materials, and field guides, etc.

If you are interested in plant diversity and want to contribute towards the welfare and maintenance of the Botanic Garden in Mainz, you are cordially invited to join the Friends of the Botanic Garden.

You can avail yourself of special tours, lectures, and excursions, and, of course, meet others who are interested in plants and the Mainz Botanic Garden.
