In this workcamp, you will prepare the summer flower festival “Neresheim in Bloom”, which will be opened on July 18th. Your main tasks will be to build, move and install various flowerbeds, plant the flowers for the festival, and even install some beach elements along the main festive road which leads from the main square down to the town park. Since the park will be part of the flower festival, this is a good occasion to make the park more attractive by planting flowers, renovating existing park elements and installing new ones, such as a bar foot path and a beach volleyball field. Your work in the park also includes tasks like digging up the lawn in order to prepare the flower beds, so be prepared to work with earth and soil. You might also be involved in setting up other elements of the festival for the opening ceremony.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
You will be accommodated in the local fire station which offers a big room for sleeping, toilets and a place to cook! Neresheim will provide you with beds and you will only need to bring your own sleeping bag. The showers are located in the public swimming baths which are only a 200m walk away. Supermarkets can be easily reached by foot.
