Garden of Moving Time

What can we learn with the cycles of life in a school meadow?

The garden as an open learning space: until 2024, a place of learning will be designed in the open spaces around the HLW Bad Ischl by contemporary artists in cooperation with students, experts and initiatives.

About the project

From a kitchen meadow to a green classroom: students at HLW Bad Ischl, a secondary school for economy, social managementand care, have been working since 2022 with artists and experts to develop a garden on the school grounds. Based on the concept of care, which plays an important role in education at the HLW, the Garden of Moving Time is particularly concerned with establishing the relationship to time in social structures, in nature and even in cosmic dimensions. In several workshops, the school’s environment was first examined in detail, afterwards design options were explored with the students directly on site. A previously unused area becomes a place of biodiversity, and will be both a place to learn and a place to chill out.
