Urban Gardening: Former students deliver fresh vegetables in boxes

Our alumni Füsy (Jonas), Sascha and Ramy (Vikram) have developed a contemporary gardening project. If you have no space, no time, or no experience with gardening, you can still grow your own vegetables, thanks to their business “Gmüesgärtli.ch.” Your garden will be delivered in boxes and planted by the "gmüesgärtlern". This is an ideal project also for the many Ecolianers who will go on to live in urban areas.

Each session begins with a seminar style discussion about post-colonial literary theory followed by closely guided writing activities, weekly vocabulary tests and essays."
