Visiting academics in Sustainability & Garden-based Learning from the Free University, Berlin

We were very happy to host colleagues Inka Bormann and Karola Braun-Wanke at the Orchard Garden, Roots on the Roof, Trillium North Park and other garden-based learning sites on campus and in Vancouver in October and November.

Inka and Karola both work in sustainability at UBC's sister university in Berlin, the Freie Universit├Ąt (Free University, or FUB). Karola runs a teaching and learning garden at the FUB Botanical Gardens, and is involved in very interesting workshops that often parallel our interests in the UBC Cultivating Learning Network gardens.

We hope this is just the beginning of a research and teaching collaboration between students, staff and faculty at our two universities!
