The jury spent a day in kitzingen to see nine of the 30 projects that have been launched in the city in recent months.

The spark should fly
Each jury member comes from a different field and evaluates according to certain criteria. Verena reelfs from hanau is in the entente floral jury for the second time. She ran a tree nursery for many years. What particularly appeals to her about the competition is the commitment of the citizens: "the best thing is when you realize that the citizens are involved and the spark has been ignited." It gives her pleasure when she sees how well projects are received by the younger generation as well.

City gardener johannes linder is particularly pleased with how well children and schoolchildren have participated in the activities. With school classes and kindergarten groups, he has been sowing and planting for all it's worth over the past few weeks. Cure bites, which he prepared with daycare children, are to be prepared according to old recipes – according to the motto "grandson sats, grandma cooks". "In this way we can even bring generations together in a relaxed way. With the tool 'grun' we demand communication in the whole city, according to the motto: flowers beat bridges", says johannes lindner laughing. For him not only the "green" pays but also the social aspect.
