Bibelgarden II
PPS Biblegarden
The biblegarden is part of the project "Across the Bible - Quer durch die Bibel" and the topic "School and Nature ", in which the PPS takes part every year. It is our practical contribution to the topic "Creation" too.
The idea for our biblegarden developed from the topic, creation“ (class 6 and 10, RE) and a discussion about the picture “The Great Gardener” by Emil Nolde within the context of a topic about the environment (English
class G 10). It also links with the annual participation of the PPS in the action “School and Nature”, in which the PPS always takes a front places.

In the Bible there are many garden stories and references to nature. On the basis of the development at that time agriculture was an important economical factor, and is therefore part of many biblical stories. Many plants are named in the Bible.
It starts with the story of the Garden Eden in the Old Testament and culminates in Jesus’ parables and words in the New Testament. Within it nearly all areas are mentioned from love to social topics and medical aspects of gardening.

The biblegarden opens many possibilities for us. It enables us to experience the past today, to feel it and even taste it. The Bible is experienced through the plants of the biblegarden.
Our biblegarden is not only a special part in the competition in the action “School and Nature”, but also opens a new and interesting area of research for the project “Across the Bible - Quer durch die Bibel”.

The biblegarden-bed has a diameter of about 3 metres. In this plant-bed there are:
a little fig tree (we have a big one, too), a grape-vine, an oil tree or olive, a pomegranate, a (cultivated) thistle, lilies, a myrtle, an aloe, a rose - symbolic for plants with thornes too, tulips and daffodils.
