Organic Horticulture Education For Youth

Green Flower Foundation supports local initiatives that deliver vocational education in organic horticulture and floriculture to young people. We work through partnerships with institutions, companies and individuals who share our passion for innovative education, entrepreneurship and sustainable development.

Our objectives

Green Flower Foundation is a Swiss foundation established in 2016 with three interlinked objectives

Organic Horticulture

Organic production of vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers promotes long-term soil fertility, clean water and biodiversity. We support initiatives that harness agricultural potential in a sustainable way.

Vocational Education

Effective education and training can equip young people with the skills needed in the horticulture labour market today. We value dual track professional education systems and employ their principles.

Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurial mindset and skills are invaluable assets in today's dynamic world. We integrate them in our curricula to equip young people with the means to address professional life challenges with creativity.
