Virtual Tours & Feedback

Lien, former student of LIS, June 2019:
...I am so grateful for this amazing CAS experience - creating pages for the Garden Journal. It was I think my first experience, which was more-long-term and I was surprised to find myself motivated the whole time. I think part of it was thanks to the wonderful cooperation with the leader of the School Garden Project, Ms. Vogel-Sirin. She provided the framework, and together we contributed ideas, which then all poured into the sketches, revision and feedback, and finally the finished pages...

Tamar, former LIS parent, July 2019:
...I am proud to have been part of a group of LIS parents and teachers, who created an unparalleled resource for our children—a place where they have planted and harvested vegetables, where they have learned to make pesto and lavender oil, and where they can simply be outdoors surrounded by the sights and sounds of a garden on a beautiful day...

Anneke, Friend of LIS, Juni 2020:
...the garden has become an unexpected place of reflection, which always brings you out of the pressures of perfection and gives you strength and peace of mind, while you surrender to nature, which has delightful miracles every time I visit... The moments I have experienced in gardening seem to be what helps me to find my inner balance...

Anne, former LIS teacher, September 2020:
...I liked helping out in the school garden whenever volunteers were needed. It gave me the chance to reconnect to nature, do something with my hands and give back to the LIS community. I was always dreaming of having my own farming land and growing lots of food for me and my family. Working in the LIS school garden gave me the chance to experience how much work that actually is and how much knowledge it requiresJ Yes, the school garden and all the inspiration which come with it had a profound effect on me...

Eulalia, former LIS parent, November 2020:
Dear Garden Community friends, as I pack up (frantically), I think of the holiday that is celebrated in the US today: Thanksgiving. I wanted to say farewell and express my gratitude to all of you for the welcoming space, the smiles, the community of the School Garden. It is a place that gave me lots of belonging in Leipzig and for that I am very grateful. Keep it up and in a future trip to Leipzig I hope to surprise you on a Tuesday and greet you all, as well as our official Garden Baby! Be well and happy day of Thanksgiving!
