The Lower Saxony Minister of Food, Agriculture, and Consumer Protection Barbara Otte-Kinast opened the new Healthy Soil – Healthy Water experience station in the Park of Gardens. Her enthusiasm for the new education and interactive concept on the subject of soil and water was obvious. Above all, she was delighted with the didactical mediation approach to learning new things. She was also impressed with the idea of people being given food for thought through interactive activities. This small exhibition invites you to embark on a trip “under the earth”: Visitors are at eye level with soil organisms, and can use interactive exhibits to understand the important functions of intact soil, not least for safeguarding our drinking water.
