A variety of tasks are waiting for your help. One task will be the maintenance of a hiking trail in the forest. So-called “neophytes” (invasive non-native vegetation) need to be removed in the nature protection area. You will cut and clear those plants. Furthermore, cleaning and clearing of vegetation needs to be done in biotopes like ponds and tarns. You will, most likely, also repair fences and maintain grasslands around fruit trees. Be prepared for hard physical work! Due to working in damp and steep areas (ponds), rubber boots and/or sturdy shoes are necessary for working effectively!
You are also going to help with the running of the Agricultural Experience Day on Sunday, July 19th, which involves setting up exhibition stands and different stations, where visitors can experience different aspects of agriculture and landscape preservation.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
The workcamp team will stay in a nice community house in the middle of the forest, where you can find sanitary facilities, showers and a well-equipped kitchen. You can have a look at their website: http://moosenmaettleweb.de. There are 4 bed-rooms for you. Due to the position of the house in a very rural area, it is likely that there will not be access to internet and no coverage for mobile phones. Just be prepared to spend two wonderful, adventurous weeks away from your busy and usual everyday life.
