Clear a historic irrigation canal - help let the water flow and reach the mills again! In a side valley of the Moselle there is a historic “Waalweg”, a man-made irrigation canal that used to carry water over several hundred metres into the neighbouring “Mühlental” (mill valley) to run the mills. A unique feature of this irrigation channel was that it also led the water through a cave and a tunnel under a mountain ridge. Over the course of the past years, this canal filled up with dirt and rocks and the cave became overgrown. The aim of the project is to uncover the stream and the cave so that the water can flow into the neighbouring valley again. In concrete terms, your tasks will be to clear the canal and the tunnel of vegetation, branches, debris and mud. You will certainly get dirty during this task. Local volunteers and some professionals will support you and will ensure an interesting exchange with locals. A well-known hiking trail follows the “Waalweg”, so interested onlookers will regularly watch you at work. The result of your work will not only be historically and ecologically valuable, but will also be admired by hikers for years to come.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

You will live and sleep in the buildings of the local sports club. You can use their kitchen and showers as well as mats for sleeping. Please bring a sleeping bag. Outside the club house, you have plenty of space to play games and sports. Volunteers will cook together and share kitchen and cleaning tasks.

Locatie en vrije tijd

Kobern-Gondorf is a village with 3.200 inhabitants in the valley of the river Moselle. Kobern-Gondorf offers many attractions: the Moselle wine which is cultivated here, four ruins of castles and many half-timbered houses from the middle age in the village centre. It is also a lively place with many pubs, associations and a good infrastructure (good public transport, schools and kindergartens). The village is surrounded by a beautiful landscape, so in your free time you can go hiking and discover the nature of the Moselle valley. Excursions to Koblenz and maybe to Bonn or Trier are possible. However, priority will be given to joint activities in Kobern-Gondorf and with the local population.


Coronavirus / Covid-19: Info regarding workcamps in Germany Although it is still difficult to make definite plans for this year, we are optimistic that our workcamps in summer and autumn can take place as planned. Your safety and health, just as everybody else's, is our priority in any project. Be assured that we will take the neccessary health and sanitary precautions in all of our projects. Should there be any changes or cancellations to your workcamp, we will inform you immediately. Please be aware that we can only really plan ahead a couple of weeks at the moment, so we ask you to wait to buy tickets for travelling to your workcamp until you receive a definite confirmation that your workcamp is going to take place; or to buy refundable tickets. On May 31st we will confirm or cancel the workcamps for July and August and on July 31st the workcamps from September onwards, depending on the development.
