Bird Food Donation
It`s wintertime again and our birdies in the garden are waiting for a feast. We would be happy if you would support the school garden by donating bird food (sunflower seeds, peanuts, oat flakes, bird food mixes). You can buy it in almost every supermarket. You can drop of your donations in the little box next to the reception desk. Thank you very very much! The birds will be happy!
We got a huge donation of plants and stones from Michael from the neighborhood. He had to give up his rockery garden (Steingarten) and was happy to find a new home in our garden. He will be joining us in spring to design a rockery garden in our school garden. Stay tuned and join us!
Thank you to everybody who help cleaning the garden in autumn from all the leaves which came down from the oak trees. It is massive every year!!!! We are having a winter break. And if the weather is a bit warmer, we will meet again starting in march. Enjoy the winter months!!!
A great collection of books connected to gardening; crafting & nature can be found in our school library. Contact Ms. Carol and she will help you to find them there.

Due to the raising numbers of COVID 19 cases and the restrictions we cannot host a Farmers Market right now. We hope to be able to organize community events again very soon!!!! But Ms. Gitte is in touch with secondary teachers to find a way how to combine the service learning and the organization of the Farmers Market to develop lots of other ways to continue with this great way of collecting financial support for the garden also in times of Corona.
