The experimental garden and nature activities at the College

Since September 2015, some of our students have invested in an experimental garden under the supervision of Irene Kelliny. Once a week, during their sports class and on a voluntary basis, 6-8 students from 6th grade come to take care of the vegetable garden for various works over the seasons. For example: regular weeding, sowing, watering, harvests. In doing so, they also learn to observe and identify the different plants and trees on campus, to recognize which parts of which plants are edible and which ones are toxic. In addition to this, they collaborated with the teachers of handicrafts department to prepare signs to name the main trees of the campus, and in June of this year, an automatic watering system was installed to water the garden during the summer break. This is a great project where students put into practice theories learned in science class, such as the food chain, or the levers when they use the various tools.

In spring of 2017, in collaboration with Dana Bauer, the team members of the Global Campus Project and the College Gardener, aimed to build a pollinator-friendly campus. Students from grades 7-10 created signs to mark out flowering meadow areas that were quickly inhabited by all kinds of insects. At the same time, a mason bee hive was installed (stingless bees that do not sting) that grew very well on our campus.

This year, activities continue in the garden as before. In addition, two mothers of primary students plan to develop a new vertical garden project. Very nice projects that continue or start this year whose theme is sustainable development.
