Campus Garden

The campus garden is the green hub on the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam campus. In the winter semester 2015/16, students developed concepts for community gardens in an interdisciplinary seminar in the InterFlex teaching format. Over the years, a colourful working group of currently about 50 students, employees, young families and senior citizens from the university and the neighbourhood has emerged.

The bed patrons meet regularly to water, garden or work together and grow vegetables and herbs in about 40 raised beds. Cooperation has been established with several degree programmes ot the university and there is now a waiting list for bed sponsors.
