This work camp is for nature lovers, since the work will be mainly outdoors. The volunteers will work in a nature park on the island “Usedom” located in the Baltic Sea. Typical for the region are salt and orchid meadows. There is a lot of work around the natural reserve. Since it’s not possible to use common agriculture techniques, volunteers have to do everything manually. More over every meadow around has to be cut and the grass has to be put aside. The aim of this project is to help to protect this unique reserve through your contribution.
The volunteers will stay in trainers at a youth hostel. Full board is included. There will be someone cooking for the participants.
Excursions can be planned, short trips to nearby towns, swimming.
This project is organized by NiG e.V., a german non-profit and non-government organization. In this project we work together with the historic technical museum of peenemünde. The Peenemünde Historical Technical Museum is working on the history of the creation and use of weapons during World War II. The exhibitions document who worked in Peenemünde, how people lived and why the enormously elaborate weapon projects were carried out.
Please bring a sleeping bag, a mattress pad, working clothes and motivation.
