08.05.2015 Fruits of the trees in the Luthergarten will be used by the Protestant School in Wittenberg

In late summer when time to harvest comes you can admire them – the fruits of the 80 fruit trees in Luthergarten. Aglow yellow quinces, red apples, blue plums, haws, and even pears from a Melanchthon pear tree will mature. To make use out of the fruits on May 13th, 2015 an agreement was signed between the Protestant school „Philipp Melanchthon“  and the LWF Center Wittenberg. This happened during devotion in the Luthergarten with music and songs. About 100 students including a guitar group took part.

Now, the school is allowed to harvest the fruits. Whether these fruits will become “Luther jam” or will be eaten freshly during the morning break – we will see. In addition the Luthergarten is an ideal place for the students to enjoy nature, to preserve the creation and to experience internationality and ecumenism. In this way the international and ecumenical monument for the Reformation jubilee becomes a strong part of the daily life in Wittenberg.
