Raised beds at the Son­theim campus

with the friend­ly sup­port of AOK-Heilbronn-Franken

With the sup­port of the AOK we from the sus­tain­abil­i­ty depart­ment have start­ed the raised beds project at the Son­theim cam­pus. The goal is of course to grow our own fruits and veg­eta­bles. Under the #gar­den­fri­day we post inter­est­ing arti­cles every Friday:

  • on the progress of the project
  • to sea­son­al fruits and vegetables
  • on pos­i­tive prop­er­ties on the body of var­i­ous fruits and vegetables
  • on sus­tain­abil­i­ty issues

But you can stay up to date not only on Insta­gram. Also in the newslet­ter and here on this page you can find out every­thing about raised beds, sus­tain­abil­i­ty, fruit and vegetables.

In addi­tion to the #gar­den­fri­day, we have also col­lect­ed con­tri­bu­tions from the AOK on the top­ic of “eat­ing bet­ter”. Here you can learn every­thing about nutri­tion and food.

Are you ready for our gar­den project? We need YOUR sup­port! The raised beds and the first seedlings are grad­u­al­ly mak­ing their way around cam­pus. So if you feel like prov­ing your green thumb at the uni­ver­si­ty, feel free to con­tact us by mail at nach­haltigkeit-hnvs.hs-heilbronn.de!

The eye eats with you — that’s what they always say when it comes to serv­ing food. That’s why more and more often you can find blos­soms on the plates in var­i­ous restau­rants. Edi­ble flow­ers have a wide range of fla­vors, from very Read more

Woodruff — star for the may punch

Small, light green and rather incon­spic­u­ous, woodruff grows in almost every decid­u­ous for­est. In spring, the herb is one of the first plants to sprout from the ground again after win­ter. Depend­ing on the loca­tion, woodruff blooms as ear­ly as the begin­ning of April into the Read more

Goji berry — queen of superfoods

The goji berry is con­sid­ered a mir­a­cle fruit because of its many pos­i­tive prop­er­ties. Many mod­els swear by the berry, which orig­i­nates from Chi­na, as a source of their beau­ty. In addi­tion, the small shriv­eled fruit is said to boost the pro­duc­tion of human growth hor­mone, strength­en the immune sys­tem, alle­vi­ate sleep prob­lems, improve eye Read more

Rhubarb — quite sour

Is rhubarb a fruit or a veg­etable? In fact, due to its ori­gin, it is clas­si­fied as a veg­etable. How­ev­er, due to the way it is pre­pared, it is often mis­tak­en­ly clas­si­fied as a fruit. It is quite fun­ny in the USA — there it is offi­cial­ly assigned to the Read more

Radic­chio — a real Italian

Although it has been known in our coun­try for only a few decades, radic­chio has been win­ning over south­ern Euro­peans since ancient times. For us, the leafy veg­etable is just anoth­er type of sal­ad. How­ev­er, the herb can be much more than just a sal­ad, because Read more
