Companies we're working with
Working with Kew gives you the opportunity to be associated with our UNESCO World Heritage Site with almost two million visitors a year. Below are some examples of the partnerships we have delivered with other companies in recent years.
innocent foundation – developing forest futures in Bolivia
One of the poorest regions in the world, the forests of the Bolivian Amazon are home to a unique range of flora and fauna.
However, unsustainable farming is severely threatening the region’s forest upon which local people depend for their lives and livelihoods.
The innocent foundation is partnering with Kew in northern Bolivia to build community fruit tree nurseries – enabling local people to develop sustainable food and income, reducing pressure on the remaining forest and developing a model which can be used across rural Latin America.
Dial a flight - Temperate House Heritage Horticulture Apprentices
Dial a Flight, one of the UK’s leading travel companies, is generously supporting Kew’s Heritage Horticulture Apprentices programme via its charity, Make My Day Better.
The project enables disadvantaged young people from West London to train with Kew’s plant experts, gaining the skills, confidence and qualifications to succeed in specialist horticultural careers. With the support of Dial a Flight, the project was launched in September 2013, and the first two Apprentices have begun their training.
