Become active now for the preservation of the historic orchard "Doktorgarten" in Teterow!


The online marketplace for certified nature conservation projects offers a new project for support in the Mecklenburg town of Teterow. The aim is to preserve the historic "Doktorgarten" allotment garden as a testimony to history, with distinctly diverse and rare fruit varieties, as a valuable habitat between agricultural landscape and settlement area and, of course, as a recreational space for the residents of the town of Teterow and their visitors. Crowdfunding via AgoraNatura helps to directly support such valuable orchards and thus also to preserve cultural characteristics and beauty. Everyone can support easily with a click from home!

As required by AgoraNatura, this new project was also developed according to the Natureplus-Standard certified. This ensures that effective frameworks for biodiversity and nature services are provided and that results are also regularly monitored during implementation.

The project is financed through so-called nature conservation certificates. Each certificate protects and develops 100 m² of the selected project area for one year. However, all planned measures will only be implemented when all nature conservation certificates have been financed by autumn 2022. The project area can be visited at any time, especially on the annual apple day, and regular information on progress is provided.

Preservation of the historic orchard meadow as a rarity in Mecklenburg

The project to preserve the "Doctor's Garden" is being implemented by the Foundation for Environmental and Nature Conservation Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. For more than 25 years, it has been committed to preserving natural diversity in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern with great dedication and passion. The Teterow Doctor's Garden is a special highlight for the foundation, and its preservation is a special challenge. Through the AgoraNatura marketplace, the foundation has already raised funding for important maintenance measures. Now it hopes for further commitment.

The "Doktorgarten" is located on the outskirts of the town of Teterow and, in addition to preserving endangered and regionally rare fruit varieties, helps to preserve a highly valuable habitat between the agricultural landscape and the settlement area. The implementation in the planned project includes 25 expert conservation prunings for the medium-aged fruit trees of the doctor's garden. These will ensure the long-term preservation of the entire complex. In addition, supplementary measures are planned to complete the documentation of the Doctor's Garden with the aim of creating exemplary signage.

The Foundation has long been concerned with the preservation of this historic orchard, but can only implement the measures planned with the project with financial participation. Through AgoraNatura, the Foundation therefore offers the opportunity to participate in the long-term preservation of the "Doctor's Garden" through the nature conservation certificates.

The independent platform also offers other quality-checked and transparent nature conservation projects in Germany. Getting involved in nature conservation privately or as a company has never been so easy.

AgoraNatura is Germany's first online marketplace for certified nature conservation projects.

Since October 2020, AgoraNatura has enabled anyone who manages land and wants to implement a nature conservation project to finance it via crowdfunding or through partnerships with companies. Private investors and companies can specifically promote biodiversity and nature services through the purchase of nature conservation certificates. In order to ensure the ecological impact of the projects, each project is externally audited by the Natureplus-Standard certified.

AgoraNatura emerged from a research and development project with partners from nature conservation and agriculture. Since July 2021, the marketplace has been run as a project of the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF) e.V. managed. The spin-off as an independent organisation is planned for 2022. Further information can be found at
