At the Krzyżowa Foundation, we focus on education through experience and try to show good practices that can inspire change for the better. This thought also guided us in developing the concept of an ecological educational garden. We were all the more pleased to hear from the Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt in the spring of 2020 that our educational project 'Food - with tradition into modernity' will receive funding and that we will be able to extend our sustainable food education offer with such a graceful and useful space as the garden.
The garden is planned to have a herbarium, a vegetable garden and a picturesque corner under the oaks, which is planned to provide respite, even on hot days. The Green Classroom, a roofed place in the vicinity of the growing area, will allow to relax after common activities by the patches and to work with groups on topics related to sustainable food. The architectural design is created in the Tecla Design Office, and thanks to permaculture design workshops conducted by the Plastformers Foundation, our employees and guests could participate in this process.
Through the garden in Krzyżowa we want to show in practice how you can work with nature in the cultivation of plants. We invite you to observe it, experiment, play and draw conclusions.
The "Green Krzyżowa" tab was created thanks to the funding of the Heinrich Böll Foundation.
