On Wednesday 6th October the "Diversity" project presented by the Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle won the European Award for Ecological Gardening 2021.
Since 2015, "Natur im Garten", represented by the province of Lower Austria and the associations "European Garden Association - Natur im Garten International" and "Natur im Garten" GmbH, has been awarding a prize every two years to recognize the most outstanding achievements in ecological gardening.
The Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle presented the project "Diversity - the importance of biological diversity for humans, animals and plants" and entered the competition in the category "Promotion of biodiversity in gardens and green spaces".
"Diversity" won against 11 other high-quality projects from Germany, Austria, Russia and the Netherlands. The Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle project represents real added value for people and the environment and is a contribution to increase biodiversity.
"Sculptures and installations guide garden visitors along many paths that, with scientific precision, provide important information about ecology, the plant world and the world of invertebrate animals in a garden. This is a perfect way for the whole family to understand how to create a garden full of diversity," said the jury.
