Duitsland | Natuur en constructie
Samen met 11 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 14 dagen naar een natuur en constructieproject.
Het project duurt van 8 t/m 22 augustus.
You will mainly work in the canyon “Butzerbachgraben” crossing the village. It has been a real jungle, so they already started to do some forest work to make it accessible again. Your tasks will be to improve several hundred meters of the path leading through the canyon (construct wooden steps and handrails, install educational panels and build up places to rest (with wooden benches). If there is time enough, you might also create an outdoor classroom for the primary school nearby. You will work with some local volunteers; therefore you will also work on Saturdays (as many locals are available) but will have another day off during the week. The work can be physically hard in parts and you will get dirty. But you will work in the shadow which can be quite helpful in summer.
You will stay in several rooms of the village community centre. These cosy rooms in the top floor are usually dedicated to the local youth or to local associations. One room will become the living room, the other one the sleeping room. There is a kitchen on the same floor but you have to descend two floors to get to the toilets and showers. You can also sit outside and make a barbecue or a campfire.
Butzweiler is a village 10 km far from Trier with 1.500 inhabitants in a beautiful landscape. The area is well known for hiking and other outdoor activities. In the village you can find a small supermarket, pubs and restaurants, a primary school and many different associations with a very active village life. The local inhabitants are already very curious to get to know you. For sure you will be invited to several parties and other activities. In the leisure time excursions (e.g. to Trier with its famous Roman sights) or special hiking trips (exploring the rest of the canyon with waterfalls, caves and the ruins of an old castle) are possible.
Butzweiler is a village not far from Trier, the oldest German city. A local group of volunteers started an initiative to revalue a canyon full of trees crossing the village. Up to now this canyon has no function in the village life, now they want to install together with the international workcamp an educational forest trail and places to rest in green and the shadow.
