University Garden Learning

In spring of 2017, we were able to create a garden located close to our DiNGIM facilities. Since the summer semester 2018, we offer courses in this garden for students of the Secondary School Teacher Training Programme (General Education) and prepare a variety of topics for learning in the context of education for sustainable development (ESD).

the School Garden has been the first course offered to students of the Secondary School Teacher Training Programme (General Education), subject Biology and Environmental Protection. Future teachers learn to use school gardens as a multifunctional place of learning in theoretical and practical units. In doing so, the courses put emphasis on various topics discussed in the context of education for sustainable development. Through interdisciplinary work in the school garden, the students develop a learning programme that links their two subjects. In summer semester 2018, for example, the "Gardener Ellipse" in context of math classes or a "Roman pot" was planted with ingredients for an ancient Roman recipe. Currently, we prepare two additional courses: "Winter in the school garden" and "Living organisms in biology”.
