At present, plants in the cemetery are mainly viewed from the perspectives of ecology and climate change. Occasionally other important meanings are overlooked. Plants have played and still play an important role in the design of cemeteries: here, for example, they serve as fencing, avenues or hedges to create aesthetic spaces. On gravestones and in communal graves they have a great significance as symbols. In near-natural burial grounds, plants even become symbols of graves. And as the seasons change, plants as symbols illustrate the cycle of becoming and passing away.
In the seminar, the subject of plants is explored in various directions through a lecture, a guided tour of the museum and an excursion to the main cemetery in Kassel.
The one-day seminar is especially designed for cemetery guides.
Maximum number of participants: 15 persons (plus 2 referees).
