You can experience nature conservation and forest maintenance as well as recreation in idyllic surroundings in this workcamp. You will live and work with 11 other young people from all over the world in the Rothfos youth guesthouse and the associated small forest. During this workcamp you will reforest the forest and replace trees that had to be cut down due to illness or storm damage. You will dig holes with shovels and spades and plant tree seedlings. In addition to this important contribution to nature, environmental and climate protection, you will also carry out maintenance work in the green spaces and at the playground and, if necessary, make repairs to the footpath to the lake.
