Garden history association in sorø

Sorø is characterized by its many voluntary associations.

We say that if you have a special interest and there is no association for this, then you create one.

The garden behind Sorø Museum has its own voluntary association, with which Sorø Museum has a collaboration agreement.

The museum sees it as its task to provide space and framework for the association by letting the association rule in the part of the garden that is decorated with plants from Joachim Burser's world-famous herbarium. Every year a small amount is set aside in the museum's budget to ensure maintenance and new acquisitions of plants.

In return, the association ensures that we have a unique pharmacy garden, which is worth a visit. You can visit it here: http://www.apotekerhaven.dk/
