Help the community of Kisslegg set up a garden of biodiversity on an abandoned plot of land Your task will be to clear parts of the area, build a path to lead through it, set up insect hotels, birds nesting boxes and other places for biodiversity to take over the land. Your own creative ideas are very welcome to turn the area into a beautiful garden this summer. Once the biodiversity garden is finished, people will have the possibility to walk here, to observe nature and animals and learn more about biodiversity and why environmental protection is important.
You will be accommodated in the house of the local voluntary fire brigade. If you need to cool off after a hot summer day, you can use the local outdoor swimming pool nearby (which includes a pool as well as access to a small lake).
Kisslegg is a town in the district of Ravensburg in Southern Germany. It is embedded in a lake landscape, which is great for cycling and hiking. One of the town s lakes has an outdoor pool and pitches for campers. In the area, there is a protected natural habitat called Hochmoor. Kisslegg has its own brewery, a mineral water plant and natural springs. The Alpes, Lake Constance, Switzerland and Austria are just a stone s throw away.
The municipality of Kisslegg is looking forward to hosting a group of international volunteers for the first time this year. The village is quite well-known for its location close to Lake Constance and the Alpes. 2019 is the year of Biodiversity for the whole area, and the town needs your help to turn an abandoned area into a garden of biodiversity. Biodiversity means a variety of plant and animal life. It is very important to an ecosystem because each species plays a different role in the ecosystem.
