Duitsland | Constructie en restauratie
Samen met 11 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 14 dagen naar een constructie en restauratieproject.
Het project duurt van 30 juni t/m 14 juli.
One area in the Mariaberg complex where people with and without disabilities work together is the ecological farm, which is mainly raising Angus cattle, but also some pigs, geese and therapeutic sheep as well as cultivation of different grains. The farm is located a bit outside the main part of Mariaberg and quite recently it was made possible that the people working in the farm can also live there directly. So the project for this year’s Workcamp is to renovate and rebuild the outdoor area at the farm’s building so that it can be used for free time activities and relaxation. During some days the Workcamp volunteers will work together with students with disabilities from one of the schools in Mariaberg.
Accommodation will be in a gym hall in the centre of Mariaberg close to all needed facilities like showers and toilets. You will certainly have access to the swimming pool of the quarter and have the opportunity to use other facilities. You will not prepare meals for yourself since there is no kitchen close to your accommodation. Hence, you will be served in the local Café and restaurant of the “village”.
Gammertingen is situated 80 km south of Stuttgart, nestled in the Swabian Albes (not Alpes!)– a beautiful mountain chain with spectacular nature. Without a doubt, you will find enough to do in Mariaberg itself (swimming pool, barbecue, gym halls, bowling, restaurants and cafés!) but the region also offers its nature, typical Swabian villages and small towns as worthy day-trips. The locals are looking forward to the cultural exchange with you and will be happy to organise trips and other activities for you.
Following the success of last years’ projects, IBG and international volunteers are again invited to come to Gammertingen. An old monastery overlooks the village from atop the surrounding hills and lush forests of the Swabian Albes. Mariaberg, a quarter of Gammertingen, is not only a village, but also a supporting organisation of the “Behindertenhilfe”, an institution offering homes, workshops, and education (kindergarten and schools) for young people with learning difficulties, disabilities or illnesses. A diverse range of people – young and old – come together here to live, learn and work. We ask you to come with an open heart and mind, as you will be in close contact with the people and become a part of the diverse community in Mariaberg!
