Walking on top of the trees – grades 6 and 7
Nature on the Isle of Rügen
9th April 2018

Students of grades 6 and 7 went to Naturerbezentrum – Nature Heritage Centre – in Binz on the Isle of Rügen. They were ready for a walk high over tree tops.
The trip started early in the morning at 8 o’clock. The groups went by bus. The weather was fantastic.

After two hours they arrived and the tour could start. The nature guide Mister Strohmann explained the special features of plants and wildlife on the island, an example for an intact ecosystem which has to be preserved by next generations, so by the students! Huge parts of the island would even disappear when we don’t do anything against climate change.
Big areas on the island are an example for this intact ecosystem. During the walk the students learned that the surrounding nature is the home of many protected plants and animals. Here they find a quiet and clean place. Huge areas are former military zones which allowed a lot of plants to grow without being disturbed.
The white-tailed eagle found a save home here as in other parts of Mecklenburg Pomerania.
At the end of an amazing walk over tree tops the students went to the environmental information centre to repeat what they have learned and to do some interesting nature experiments.
It was an amazing day in nature.

Creative Vegetable Workshop for 30 girls of grade 6
8th April 20018

At the 8th of April we welcomed Fenja Meiners from Wonderseeds-a community Permaculture Garden Project-for a creative vegetable workshop.
The workshop started with some information about the mythology, plant breeding history and different ways of using vegetable in the last century.
We listened to Fenja and got several worksheets.
Then we talked about our favorite vegetables, personal associations and experiences. Which vegetable is especially helpful because it contains health supporting components?
Inspired by all that we created unique vegetable artworks by using several fibre craft techniques- knob celery with a tear as a hint to the Greek mythology, where it is meant to be helpful on sad days, carrots with smileys, very exact plant designs showing the fascination of nature.
Finally we sewed pockets using our artworks.
Photos of all our vegetable artworks went into the Community Wondergarden in Belitz, they are part of a garden puzzle game there and laminated versions serve as signs in the developing garden.
