The school garden, built around 1920, is located in what is probably the most elaborately designed area of the Altona People's Park - a teaching and viewing area for the natural history education of Altona students. But adults have always been able to learn a lot about professional horticulture here.The school garden was originally used to cultivate visual material for school lessons in natural history and drawing. Altona schools also received their own garden sections for processing. In this way, the children were brought closer to the native plants. Show gardens and beds with kitchen and medicinal plants as well as an arboretum, an alpinum and an orchard were also on display in the school garden.
The schoolhouse designed by Tutenberg could of course also be used for teaching by all schools in Altona and offered sufficient space for practical and artistic natural science. In 1932, these magnificent flowers moved into the garden specially created for them on the corner of Luruper Chaussee / Stadionstraße, where they have been admired by hundreds of thousands of visitors every year since then.During the construction of the school garden, seven model allotment gardens were created, in which adults could also learn how to use the garden professionally and thus - in the interwar years - not insignificantly - were able to gain valuable insights for self-sufficiency. Even today, gardening is still carried out here. The association “Tutenberg Institute for Environmental Design” has planted beds here that can be worked on jointly or individually. The bees are already there and the first honey from our own beekeeping is welcome to try - a real natural product from the Altona People's Park.hamburg.de/karte-volkspark/4292984/schulgarten
