About Tooro Botanical Gardens
Tooro Botanical Gardens (TBG) is an indigenous NGO founded in 2001 as a centre of excellence in growing, maintaining and displaying living collections of the Albertine Rift plants for conservation, scientific research, education, horticultural, medicinal, culinary, aesthetic and recreational purposes. Overtime, however, this focus has gradually been broadened due to the need to keep TBG relevant to her operating contexts.
For the last 16 years, TBG has made good strides towards preservation of endangered botanical resources in the Albertine region, environmental education and research and production of herbal medicine. In this period, TBG established her own botanical gardens for endangered plant species.
