You will help to transfer an abandoned garden to a mini-farm for children. Last year, the workcamp group already started on this project and removed lots of overgrowing plants. This year, there are three main tasks: 1. construction of a clay house for a composting toilet, 2. construction of a wooden terrace, and 3. setting up vegetable patches and flowerbeds. Apart from that, some additional tasks might come up that help making the garden a perfect place for the kids
Volunteers will be accommodated in a building of the Alte Seegrasspinnerei . There will be two sleeping rooms and all necessary facilities. Please bring your own sleeping bag and mat
Nuertingen is a beautiful old town with approx. 40,000 inhabitants. The town is located on the Neckar River and Stuttgart is only 19km away. Nuertingen is surrounded by beautiful nature and offers many cycling and hiking trails. From Nuertingen there are good train connections to visit places near-by. You can go to Stuttgart, the capital of Baden-Wuerttemberg, and Esslingen, a quaint medieval town with traditional German architecture.
The host of this workcamp is a cultural, social and ecological centre, which is called Alte Seegrasspinnerei (old spinning of seagrass). After several successful workcamps in the past, the centre is very happy to invite international volunteers for another camp this year. In three historic buildings there are artist s studios, a kindergarten, workshops for children and teenagers, offices of social initiatives or associations with ecological orientation. Many cultural events take place here. Meeting point is the Kulturkantine (culture canteen), which is also a public restaurant.
