Altogether, we have collected, catalogued and planted more than 1500 species of indigenous plants: trees, climbers, shrubs, flowers, herbs, ferns, orchids and fungi. In addition, there has been a great increase in biodiversity. In 2000 we counted 35 species of birds in the exotic plantations; now, we have 187 species on our bird list.
Brackenhurst has the largest collection of propagated plants in Kenya. Plants for Life will organize to plant trees for loved ones or in a person’s memory and we do nature, tree and bird walks on a regular basis. As we undergo ecological restoration, we invite you to share in the wonder of bringing indigenous wildlife back to our land.
