Fire in the Garden

As you might have already heard in the news or on the Internet, a generalized wood fire(8th of august) spread from a multitude of fronts and descended towards one of the most densely populated European towns. Our beautiful city of Funchal sustained substantial losses including our Beautiful Garden of over 50 000 plants and including 300 species of Orchids and around 3000 different orchid variety’s and hybrids.Also around 250 different tillandsia and bromeliads , as well as the home of our Founder Josef Pregetter and his disabled wife Marianne.
We are now humbly accepting donations to help us begin anew and continue our mission to preserve the most rare and endangered orchid
