About this project

We need energy - for nature and people!
But first of all: what do we do!
The Spatenstich nursery moves between sensible and satisfying therapeutic work in and with nature on the one hand and fresh, regional, seasonal and healthy vegetables on the other. We offer people with increased support needs the possibility of supervised employment individually and thereby convey to them appreciation, support and strengthening of self-confidence. It is more than just carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes or salads. It's about mental processes, about unconscious processes. The garden and the work in it can be felt again and thus help you to recover and stay healthy. So if you do something good for the garden, the vegetables, you are doing something good for yourself. The nursery therefore serves not only the physical, but also the spiritual well-being.
What is it about:
Since our infrastructure in the greenhouses (energy screen, gas heating guns, glass house) is very old, we face very high energy costs every year. The four-digit amounts always present us with financial problems and make our therapeutic work extremely difficult.
On the one hand, we need temperatures around 4 degrees so that the young plants can grow even in times of winter and frost, but also that our clients can work in a somewhat warmer greenhouse.
What do we ask:
Please support our therapeutic work and give us energy. Energy for nature and people. Energy that arrives directly and helps disadvantaged people.
Thanks a lot!
