KulmUNIty Garden: Development of a community garden at the Kaufplatz site in Kulmbach
On the old Kaufplatz site, we have the chance to design a space for learning, for exchange and for growing and enjoying food together with you, the citizens of Kulmbach. For this area a concept is being developed as part of a project by students of our bachelor's degree program "Lebensmittel- und Gesundheitswissenschaften", which is to be implemented in the course of the 2022 summer semester.
The Kaufplatz site was officially opened in mid-May. In five groups, each with six students, we plan to set up the KulmUNIty Garden. A core group is taking on the challenge of preparing the basic framework. The beds have to be raised, we need soil and later also seeds and pre-grown plants. However, the beds are not yet ready for planting.
We look forward to any support: If you have concrete ideas or would like to get actively involved in setting up the beds, please send an email to: kulmUNIty@uni-bayreuth.de
We also now have an Instagram channel: @kulmunity-garden, through which we regularly provide information about current campaigns.
You also have the opportunity to take a closer look at our KulmUNIty Garden at our first Campus Day, 09 July 2022. The KulmUNIty Garden will be part of our attractive programme.
