Aurèle supports the Botanical Garden fund in memory of his mother

(17-10-2022) After his mother passed away, Aurèle De Vos decided to commemorate her by donating to the Botanical Garden in the form of a fund. It should help the Botanical Garden protect rare and endangered plants.

Gabrielle lived most of her life in Lovendegem and Ghent. She loved plants and flowers, especially the wild, native species. That she grew up in the coutryside may have had something to do with that. On her travels, she visited numerous botanical gardens and came under the spell of exotic vegetation. The Botanical Garden at UGent was one of her favorite places to relax. She was especially charmed by the rich colours in autumn.
