Where the splendour of nature meets the beauty of art, all in the spirit of a greater purpose.

Art for a better world

The Grootbos Florilegium was created to instill a passion for the glorious fynbos, and inspire others to adopt a conservation mindset. As testament to this spirit, proceeds from the artwork sales will be used to fund conservation education initiatives.

Creating impact, changing lives

The Grootbos Foundation is a non-profit organisation, established in 2003 with a commitment to conserve the critically endangered fynbos. Since then, its activities have extended beyond the natural environment alone to include the people living within it. A wide variety of initiatives have been developed for the training, upliftment and empowerment of local communities, with the potential to make a powerful and lasting impact.
