By Jörg-Thomas Mörsel,Virendra Singh

Sanddorn ist eine wichtige Kulturpflanze Eurasiens. Anbau, Züchtung, Ernte und verarbeitung werden im vorliegenden werk detailliert dargestellt. Das Buch verfolgt nicht vordergründig das Ziel wissenschaftlicher Tiefgründigkeit, soll auch nicht scheinbar vollständige und unantastbare Fakten dozieren. Vielmehr magazine es eine Einführung und Anregung zur weiteren Beschäftigung mit dieser interessanten Pflanze sein. Wer dies theoretisch und praktisch tut, wird wie viele Feststellen, dass nur das eigene Tun ein tiefgreifendes Verständnis hervorbringt. So, wie der Sanddorn in Verbreitung, Erscheinung und Sorten vielfältig ist, so tritt er uns auch entgegen. Überraschungen und neue Erkenntnisse gehören dazu, egal ob bei Züchtung, Anbau oder Verarbeitung.

Hinweise auf die Rundwanderwege und Erlebnispfade mit Karten und Tourenvorschlägen, auf das „Urwald-Life-Camp" und natürlich den Baumkronenpfad sind eine Einladung für alle Interessierten. Und wer von der Natur zur Kultur wechseln möchte, findet unmittelbar angrenzend ein Weltkulturerbe: die Wartburg. Neben den zentralen Bereichen, in denen schon seit rund 50 Jahren keine forstliche Nutzung mehr stattfindet, wachsen auf den ehemaligen Freiflächen des Übungsplatzes immer mehr Jungwälder heran. Die auf Muschelkalk stockenden Wälder beeindrucken durch ihre reichen Bestände an Frühblühern, die den Waldboden mit bunten Teppichen überziehen.
