Travel projects 2014
In 2014 a total of 12.000 € were provided for gardeners exchange projects.
Potsdam - Medellín:
Two gardeners from the Botanical Garden Potsdam were travelling to Colombia. Part of the funding had been approved already in 2013.
Hamburg - Belo Horizonte:
The specialized Botanical Garden in Hamburg Wandsbek will continue the successful exchange with Brazil. The exchange exists since 2006 and has proven successful for both partner Gardens. In 2014 a gardener from Hamburg has travelled to Belo Horizonte.
Leon - München, München - Leon:
The Botanical Garden Munich establishes a gardener exchange with the Botanical Garden in Leon, Nicaragua. A gardener from Leon stayed in Munich for three months. A gardener from Munich travelled to Leon for a few weeks. The accommodation for both were provided from each participating botanic garden on site.
Bukarest - Hamburg:
The exchange with the Botanical Garden of Bucharest, which started in 2013, is to be continued by a return visit from Bucharest. For this reason two gardeners from Bucharest have been invited to Hamburg.
Funds are available for the sponsorship of travels for young gardeners. These can be applied for without specific deadlines.
