Our model in The Garden of Wonder is the unspoilt nature with a variety of plants, microorganisms and useful insects. The garden of Wonder that is cultivated biodynamically is quite certainly not untouched nature, but even though our vegetables are processed crops, their basic requirements are the same as their wild relatives: they thrive best when imitating nature as much as possible.
From the garden you can get fresh vegetables to the kitchen and beautiful bouquets for the tables. The Garden of Wonder is divided into sections: The Self-Propelled Herb garden, Orangery with eco-shop and café, Share of the orchard, Astronomical garden & Wildflowers paradise, Natural playground, Food package and outdoor kitchen, Natural construction & landing, Nature camping, Adventure and hiking, The Paddock, The Red Forest Ants, The School Bees, The Trojan and various experiments and experiments.
I got the idea to The Garden of Wonder in 2004. The idea was to teach college students at Vestjyllands Højskole to grow their own food. It has proved to be a success.
The many volunteers who help the garden and show around visitors have been a crucial prerequisite for the success of The Garden of Wonder. Today there are 60 members involved in the cooperative farm, which volunteer work with the care of fruit trees. At our events there are approx. 40 volunteer helpers. In the community hall there are 12 volunteers involved. For the daily care of The Garden of Wonder there is about the summer about 10 volunteer former high school students.
Go for a walk in the garden, taste the leaves and flowers – all herbs can be eaten. You can also inform yourself about the health value of the plants and apply to exciting dishes.
We offer nature experiences and learning about the process from land to table for school classes and institutions. Our offers are tailored to suit the needs of the individual school or institution.
In July and August, you can come and have dinner in the garden. Together we collect fruits and vegetables for salads and dishes cooked over fire, as well as baking bread in our stone oven.
If you want to join us, we’d love to hear from you.
