In this camp, your main task will be to refurbish and ecologically enhance a hiking path between the two communities Niefern and Oeschelbronn, which has been partly damaged by heavy rainfalls. Here, you will also build a dry wall under the guidance of a trained professional. Alongside this path, there are several fruit trees which you will help to revitalise by cutting back their branches, as well as planting new seedlings. Furthermore, there are several natural hedges and flower strips in the process of being planted.
In addition, you will also help to establish an insect hotel, a clearance cairn and a deadwood pile to support the local animal-population.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
You will be accomodated in a house in Niefern, which is very close to the train station (500m walk). Camp beds will be provided, so you only need to bring a sleeping bag. Kitchen and sanitary facilities will of course be available. A supermarket is just across the street.
Locatie en vrije tijd
Niefern-Oeschelbronn is a small community, but it offers everything you need. It is surrounded by nature and close to the town of Pforzheim and the Unesco World Heritage Site “Maulbronn Monastery”. The cities of Karlsruhe and Stuttgart are both not far, as well as the Black Forest where you can go hiking.
