IrisBG Sponsorship

Apply for an opportunity to get reduced fees and software licences.

The IrisBG community is now counting over 250 gardens, arboreta and private estates worldwide. We are very proud of our engaged and knowledgeable community who are all in their ways working towards missions within education, research and conservation.

Keeping healthy records of your collection is crucial if you want to collaborate with other gardens (seed and plant exchange), research efforts and preserve and share institutional knowledge with visitors and staff alike.

With the IrisBG sponsorship, we want to lower the threshold for gardens and arboreta who are committed to contributing to the larger botanical society, but for different reasons have difficulties financing a solid collection management software.

We encourage gardens and arboreta in biodiversity hotspots to apply.
