A packed calendar of events is typical for the district town of Borken. A special event is the kick-off event for the Maitremse on the market square. In summer, the "Borken Beach" attracts visitors, and in winter, the large ice skating rink at "Borken Ice" is the place to be. The Pröbstingsee is the "stage" for sporting events and the Vennehof town hall is a convincing venue for cultural events. And at the end of the year, the Christmas markets let the town and its surroundings shine.

In recent years, experiential education has found its way into many areas of school and extracurricular child and youth work. It is also used as so-called outdoor training in the context of personnel development in companies. Experiential education is described as a method and even a sub-science of pedagogy and promotes learning with heart, head and hand.In this introduction, the possibilities and limits of experiential education will be tried out for oneself and reflected on with regard to its use in one's own work. Practical units will alternate with creative reflection techniques. In addition, historical references and theoretical backgrounds of experiential education will be explained.Theory:
Eating fresh vegetables, berries or fruit directly from your own garden or balcony not only nourishes the body - it also fills you with pride and refreshes the soul!
In this three-part course, you will learn in a clear and practical way which activities take place throughout the year in a "self-sufficient garden" and how the harvest can be kept as long as possible through the winter.
The private garden known from the WDR garden show "Garten & Lecker 2022 " opens its gates with its huge palms and their blossoms. Winter-hardy palms, bananas, tree ferns, cacti and bamboos, but also lots of perennials and creative ideas await the visitor. The many different, exotic plants, retreats in quiet seating areas and arbours or also many unusual upcycled objects put the visitor in a Mediterranean holiday mood. Various water features and fountains provide distraction. An outdoor kitchen awakens the desire for rustic cooking and barbecuing in the open air with modern technology.
Since the conversion of the house in 1998, the kitchen garden, which was originally laid out in 1952 as a resettlement site with a house, has been completely redesigned into an oasis of well-being and relaxation, which is planned and implemented entirely by the residents themselves. There are always new, small or large garden projects to discover.
The owners are always happy to share their expertise. The private garden was originally discovered in 2010 by "ARD-Ratgeber - Heim und Garten", which reported from the garden in Raesfeld.
