On Friday, September 10th, 2021 the start of the development of the Organic Competence Center LFS Grottenhof was celebrated. By the summer of 2023, the old school building will be extensively renovated and converted into a boarding school with 22 rooms. In an extension designed as wooden skeleton construction, 8 classrooms, a multi-purpose hall and an organic shop with café will find place. The new outdoor facilities offer a new space for the weekly organic farmer’s market of the Bio Ernte Steiermark. ARGE GRO (Caspar Wichert Architektur + OSNAP) provides the appropriate planning.
