In surroundings which are more and more dominated by settlements, the Goetheanum gardenpark has succeeded in maintaining an area of 12 hectares (30 acres) under cultivation. This area combines horticulture (vegetables, flowers, medicinal plants etc.) and agriculture (cows, bees) with being a public park, used for training activities and contributing to nature conservation. In the centre of the Gardenpark lies a unique artwork embedded in the local landscape: the Goetheanum building.
The Section for Agriculture, together with the Science Section, offers a day programme for visitors to get to know and experience this unique environment.
