For every welcome message sent in the flower Mädesüß (filipendula ulmaria) was planted as a foundation stone for the Champions Garden in the Olympiapark. We collected 222 welcome messages and planted the corresponding flowers by the end of June, so that by August, the plants will be in full bloom for the European Championships Munich 2022.
All medal winners will also receive a potted flower (buphthalmum salicifolium) at their award ceremony. With this, they can immortalise themselves in the Munich 2022 Champions Garden.
With this project, we leave behind a blooming splendour for even after the European Championships, and thus transform lawns into a food source for bees and butterflies. Many thanks to SMW München, who will be caring for the Champions Garden.
