    Number of participants: maximum 30; duration: 3 – 4 hours; cost per person: 18 EUR

    Workshop at the University Campus Garden: Cyanotype meets Botany

    During a short walk through the Urban Garden Project CampusGarten, founded a few years ago by some garden-enthusiastic students at the University of Würzburg, we will get to know the philosophy of a permacultural cultivated Urban green lab. Here, ideas and knowledge about an (more) ecofriendly and healthy way to grow food in cities are being shared in an open communal space.

    After this introduction we will look out for interesting plants and try to classify them. Then we will apply the old photographic technique of cyanotype to transfer the botanical shapes on paper. Cyanotype are blue-prints, which develop by means of sunlight. This classic printing process is very simple, so that anyone can take their own gardening-memory with them.

    Number of participants: maximum 10; duration: 2 hours; cost per person: 10 EUR

    Landesgartenschau (State Horticultural Show)

    For everyone who is not particularly fond of group activities, or just needs some alone time, we recommend a visit to the State Horticultural Show. The Landesgartenschau site is adjacent to the university campus and located on the former premises of the U.S. Army’s Leighton Barracks.

    An individual day ticket costs 18 EUR.

    Number of participants: flexible; duration: flexible; cost per person: 18 EUR (to be paid individually at the entrance. DO NOT TRANSFER THE MONEY!)
