description
Welcome to the historic monastery garden at UWC RBC! This over 500-year old garden is part of the United World College in Freiburg and has been cultivated organically by our gardener Eva-Maria Schüle for many years. 2000 square meters large, the garden is home to rare plants threatened from extinction, bees and other reptiles - as well as the famous angelica plant, which has grown here since the Middle Ages. Since the foundation of the College, the garden also hosts plants the students have brought with them from their home countries. During the time of the monastery between 1346 - 1780, the garden was used to feed the inhabitatnts of the cloister; today, this is still partly the goal: students and staff members learn more about a self-sufficient lifestyle. as well as what is means to grow and cultivate plants organically. Gardener Eva has set up cooperations with institutions like ProSpecia Rara and Taifun and every Friday, open gardening takes place for a group of Freiburg locals. A learning space for the students, the garden has been awarded official school garden in 2016 and is now part of a state-wide network.
