The Theodor-Heuss school is going green!
Green and fun to join in! Our first urban gardening venture at the Theodor-Heuss school has begun and is supported by the natural sciences and cultural Bildungsverbund in Moabit.
As part of the summer fate on the 14th of July we built and planted a raised bed together with school children. Further beds are already being planned. The children can get hands on experience with nature, watch plants grow, try herbs and obtain a sense of responsibility in caring for their plants.
In the new school year the building and care of the raised beds will be part of the curriculum for the middle and senior students. Seating with integrated planting is also being planned for the school playground in spring 2018.
The grand opening took place during the school summer fate with the school director Ms Brüske-Dierker, Mr Büttner from the natural sciences and cultural Bildungsverbund in Moabit and Afke Huitema from AMPELMANN all taking part. Of course the stars of the day were the school children! Apart from the construction and planting of the bed, thh most fun was had during the Herb test. The children demonstrated their good taste recognizing all herbs such as mint, basil and rosmery.
One School for all!
