For ASB Greenworld, social engagement is a fundamental and integral part of the corporate culture. The latest project promotes gardening in schools and kindergartens.
For many years, ASB Greenworld has supported nonprofit organizations such as the fire brigade Bobitz and Neustadt, the sports club Bobitz, the volleyball club Pärnu in Estonia, the kindergarten in Sembach, or the activities on the occasion of the 800th anniversary celebrations in Neustadt am Rübenberge.
Since autumn 2015, ASB Greenworld has been cooperating with GemüseAckerdemie as a permanent project, among other things by donating the requirements for organic vegetable soil and organic vegetable fertilizer. Close cooperation is also intensified in other areas.
The GemüseAckerdemie is a school-accompanying and practice-oriented educational program of the association Ackerdemia e.V.. Using the example of the production and marketing of vegetables, students learn basic agricultural knowledge and develop an understanding of natural growth processes. ASB Greenworld supports the dedicated members of Ackerdemia e.V. in spreading the initiative throughout Germany in order to provide children and young people with access to natural food production and thereby increase the appreciation for food and healthy nutrition. The award winner has already won numerous awards: Federal winner "start social" 2014 Honorable mention by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, place of honor 2014/2015: Germany - Land of Ideas, awarded by IN FORM - Germany's Initiative for Healthy Eating and Exercise of BMEL and BMG.
Since 2012, ASB Greenworld has been donating organic potting soil every year to the EDEKA Foundation, thus supporting the project "Vegetable beds for kids".
As part of the project, the Hamburg Foundation provides nursery schools and day-care centers throughout Germany with raised beds, soil, seeds, plant seedlings and gardening utensils free of charge. The pre-school children looked after in the facilities thus have the opportunity to sow, care for and later harvest their own vegetables. By actively experiencing nature and taking responsibility for their bed, the little ones learn how much care the plants need and, above all, where the vegetables come from - not from the can or the supermarket shelves. The project is part of the initiative "IN FORM - Germany's initiative for healthy nutrition and exercise" of BMEL and BMG.
