An adventurous course in teaching

- for schools in the City of Copenhagen,

It's all about ecology

Nature return, magic & food joy

At BaneGaarden, we connect learning, nourishment and storytelling with concrete activities, while involving the students and bringing the learning process to eye level.

What students experience, learn and learn is a way to understand the contexts that also apply on a large scale.
We throw words such as biodiversity, ecology and sustainability into the air and seize them again as concrete examples of processes and conditions in nature, people and on a lunch plate.

We must learn and relearn that nature and the earth are wondrous, surprising and useful. And that it is a space we can dwell in, learn from and find peace by.

We also know today that proximity to nature is essential for human health. Staying in nature, keeping your hands on the mole and, for example, growing plants is of great importance for our mental, physical and social well-being.

A course at BaneGaarden is an adventurous journey through Copenhagen's green oasis – 1.2 hectares of nature in the middle of the city. Together with the students, we leaf through the chapters:

In nature

Soil and compost, chickens and, sustainability and ecology. We introduce students to nature's circular life and the importance of helping to make the big wheel spin. Depending on the grade level, students are encouraged to draw and write along the way.

In the workshop

Once we have learned more about nature, we move on to the workshop. Here, the students are introduced to the magic of fermentation, and they get a glass of cabbage home, which they themselves have had their hands on.

At the dining table

We have lunch together in the Intermediate Room. BaneGaarden offers a good and green soup. The teacher asks questions, we talk and listen to each other and hopefully everyone goes home a little wiser and a lot more curious about it all.
