With the support of the Deutsche Postcode Lottery, we started a participatory campaign on Dynamic Agroforestry in the year 2020: From July to September, interested people could get an insight into the innovative cultivation method every Friday afternoon from 3 to 6 pm on our field in Wiesbaden-Erbenheim. The aim of the whole thing was to strengthen community cooperation and to convey the importance of doing things together for understanding DAF.
After all, DAF is about contact, not control: the natural mechanisms of plants as well as nature are to be supported in their work, not controlled. The aim of the hands-on activities in the DAF is to convey this approach, i.e. to be in contact with nature and to support it in its work, to interested people in a practical way.
We were not the only ones who were enthusiastic about the lively participation and the commitment of the participants. Their conclusions were also positive throughout:
In 2022, we are again planning participatory events from May to September. Interested people can expect a large selection of plants and all kinds of interesting facts about the dynamic agroforestry. Discovering and identifying plants and berries or planting sticks, for example for table grapes and maple trees, is also part of it. As soon as the planning gets into the hot phase, you will find out more via our newsletter and here on the website.
Our big thanks go to the Deutsche Postcode Lottery, which supports the campaign as a sponsor!
