Intercultural learning in the school garden

Advanced training in the tropical greenhouse of the University of Kassel

School gardens are ideal for children's first encounters with nature. The
pupils experience growing vegetables, taste the
diversity, take responsibility or discover insects. But the gardens are also places that
open up completely new perspectives in togetherness, enable intercultural encounters
and where learning together can take place - entirely in the spirit of "Education for Sustainable
Development" (ESD). Gardening, just like eating, is something universal and unifying.
The advanced training shows possibilities for the promotion of intercultural learning in the school garden
and is a mixture from interactions and short inputs. Discussion and sharing
will not be neglected. A guided tour through the tropical greenhouse of the University of Kassel
helps us to find connecting points to Intercultural Learning. The second part gives time
and space for the development of concrete implementation ideas for intercultural learning in
own school garden.
