In 2006, Innovaplant opened the Else Kientzle Botanical Garden (Jardín Botánico Else Kientzler), with a collection of about 2.000 species of tropical plants from countries such as Mexico, Brazil, India, Japan and China.

“The Botanical Garden was created to contribute to education and environmental conservation. This project began in an old coffee farm in Sarchi, that through the years it was replaced by tropical plants, ” said Randall Rodriguez, spokesperson for the Kientzle Botanical Garden.
