Hello, green thumb - Reifenhäuser supports garden project of Bauhaus youth center

How do you actually plant fruit trees? When can vegetables be harvested? Answers to such questions are provided by the Bauhaus youth center in Troisdorf with a garden project. Reifenhäuser supports the project with a donation of 2,000 euros. This will enable the youth center to purchase plants to introduce children and young people to the topics of gardening, sustainability and nutrition.

"As a company based in Troisdorf, it is very important to us to support local social projects. From the very beginning, we found the Bauhaus team's idea very successful and are pleased that the planting of the trees is now being implemented and the project can start"

Facility manager Maik Fischer and his team want to redesign the garden of the youth center together with children and young people and start a small environmental project: several fruit trees will be planted and raised beds for growing vegetables will be created. The project will be accompanied pedagogically so that the idea of sustainability can be taken up and discussed with young people.

In addition to the garden project, the facility offers numerous activities for young people in its spacious facilities. In addition to a gymnasium, there is a large kitchen where they also cook together; a girls' room, a workshop, a painting studio, a fitness room and even a bowling alley. The Bauhaus Youth Center is an institution in Troisdorf. Built in 1968 by the parish and run by the Katholische Jugendagentur Bonn gGmbH (KJA) since 2020, the facility has accompanied numerous young people on their way to adulthood.
