PTBO Flora was born as a passion project of founder Rachel in the summer of 2015. Originally called The Peterborough Flora Compendium, our intent at inception was to create an online catalogue of wildflower species in and around Peterborough. We have since expanded and our current name PTBO Flora reflects the broader range of content, services, and products we now offer.
Being able to provide the quality and quantity of content that we strive for requires a lot of time and hard work - both of which we are committed to - but it also requires financial support. Something that we are increasingly in need of as we have long since outgrown our humble roots as Rachel's passion project! Your contribution helps finance website and podcast hosting, as well as project, equipment and other operational costs. You can support PTBO Flora by subscribing to a membership, by making a pledge on Patreon, or by purchasing our limited edition framed prints.
As a way to give thanks to our members, we are committed to delivering exclusive content and other perks. The compendium has become a cornerstone of our membership program, we also offer downloadable field guides, and our members are able to submit their questions for our podcast guests.
