In addition to ongoing environmental education in schools, we organised a big school event
with 56 children at our environmental education site in Bronte. The site was once a quarry,
later a now bonified rubbish dump and is being upgraded and greened since 11 years by
Giacche Verdi Bronte (GV) and Manfred-Hermsen-Stiftung together with international

As a part of the Humus project we organised activities with interactive lectures on composting. The combination of outdoor exercise, didactic plays and information led to a profound gain in knowledge on the value of humus connected to climate protection and biodiversity. This educational day was accompanied by a German film team from Bayerischer Rundfunk, whose report on our longstanding voluntary service, which also enriches this humus project, can be found here:
