Brackenhurst Botanic Garden & Forest restores Kenya’s native species and provides ecological education to visitors and community members. Over the past 15 years, Brackenhurst has successfully replaced exotic tree plantations with native trees that tower 30 feet tall. The forest now shelters lianas, orchids, and a species-rich understory, and provides a model for other restoration initiatives to follow.
Terraformation is providing a seed bank to help the Brackenhurst team overcome one of its biggest hurdles — access to native seeds – and to accelerate forest restoration and biodiversity initiatives across Kenya and East Africa.
