Every year in spring the EU-Horticulture-Teacher asbl organises a 5-day seminar.The venue is always a partner school from our association.
In addition to professional and cultural visits, the annual general meeting of the EU-Horticulture-Teacher asbl is always held during the seminar.
Another important aspect of the seminars is the exchange of experience among the participating colleagues.
The European seminars for horticultural teachers have a long tradition:
As early as 1970, the President of UNREP Mr Leforestier invited to the 1st Franco-German Seminar for Horticultural Teachers in Saint Germain-en-Laye.
In 1990 the French-German seminars for horticultural teachers were opened to other European nations and have since then been promoted mainly under the responsibility of Johannes Peperhove, the long-standing president of the Association of European Horticultural Teachers.
It was not until 2005 at the seminar in Grünberg (Germany) that the Working Group of European Horticultural Teachers was officially founded and since then the AG has also been officially responsible for the organisation of the annual teacher seminars.
