The circle, the circle level and days, give Impulse without threats and intimidation. From farmer to hunter, from public authorities, associations up to the environmentalists all were sitting at a table. Eye-to-eye will advise and tried to take the ideas in the population, says the Circular attached. Your plea for common sense had risen. The achievements were amazing: in Front of town halls, on roundabouts and squares of herbs were wild, clubs distributed seed packets and give planting tips. Soon would to example for successful Plantings – district office, Hochheim swimming pool, a roundabout and in the vicinity of the water tower in Bad Soden – squares with QR-Codes attached with the aid of citizens planting could pick up tips to adhere to. If a Bed look nice, it could encourage citizens to plant something Similar in the front yard or on the balcony.

Marianne Knöss, long-term environmental politician in Hofheim am Taunus and member of the Group of the Greens in the city Council, the strategy paper for goal-oriented and non-binding.

And the detailed listing was the basis for future projects. 36,000 Euro for new species-appropriate perennials, flower beds, mowing-Well, nest boxes, replanting of the wedding lawn and fruit let meadows the city already this year, the projects cost. At the end of August, then the citizens should be active: you can pick up according to Köppler in the citizen office, city library and the Headquarters of the Deutsche Bank housing society is one of the 2500 seed packets free of charge. Because it is only together with the population could be Sustainable, reach, shows, Köppler convinced.

This assessment Flörsheims shares First councillor Renate Mohr (Green Alternative list of Florsheim). You must take the farmers in protection. Many farmers have already taken place a change in thinking, you are in the Florsheim competent contact person when it comes to the proper planting of wild herbs.
