"Fools hurry, wise men wait and wise men go into the garden", quoted chairman heike linz, the indian poet tagore, at her funeral for the annual general meeting of the horticultural association feulersdorf. Further she said: "we here in the country have the luxury of simply going out and pulling the carrot out of the ground. We should also take advantage of this."
The district chairman of the kulmbach gardening associations, gunter reif, emphasized that gardening has experienced a revival in recent years, not least as a result of social currents such as "save the bees" and "fridays for future. "The knowledge of the interrelationships in nature has been preserved in the villages", he said and appealed to all grandparents to pass on the old knowledge to their grandchildren. He himself set a good example and explained in his lecture entitled "was bluht denn da am wegesrand" ("what is bleeding on the wayside"), in the past, goose flowers were not only used to weave wreaths, but were also important medicinal plants whose buds were mixed into salads. In the absence of subliquors, he said, he himself had sucked the blood from dead nettles as a child: "those were our gumdrops".
