Festival of Brass Band Music or a large “Mountain Parade” are just a few

are warmly welcomed to the BUGA every day – the weekends, in particular, are
family days. Masses of children’s events, such as the kite-flying festival or
the holiday party, invite you all to join in. The “Grüne Klasse!” (Green Class!)
offers a high-quality environmental education programme regarding BUGA’07. The
courses that last about two hours (2 x 45 mins) will be eventful and practical,
and will be held on weekdays at various sites at 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.
School and kindergarten classes must register in advance. In addition, there
will be more in-depth courses as part of a project day of 4 x 45 minutes. The
“Green Class!” will be held at various sites in the “New Landscape Ronneburg”

areas of the Gera and Ronneburg Federal Garden Show as a basis and develop them
into a lively place of learning and experience.
