There was the opportunity to ask questions about their own observations, exchange experiences and pick up model plants. In the joint project "Pflanze KlimaKultur!" scientists want to explore the influence of climate change on the growth phases of plants together with citizens. The Botanical Garden Potsdam hosts a public model bed, which can be visited. Data are collected weekly by Dorit Siebert and sent to the project partners at the Botanic Garden Berlin.
