The non-profit “Ökospeicher Association” has turned a former storehouse (called Eco-Speicher) into a social and cultural village centre. The reconstruction is done in an ecological manner (renewable energy supply, clay and wood constructions and utilisation of rainwater) with the help of volunteers. You will do different renovation and construction works like constructing tables and chairs from recycled materials, repairs with wood and clay and other tasks. Outside works include e.g. constructing a dead hedge (Benjeshecken), cultivation of the elder plantation or organic farming. Please be prepared for different works with various materials. The highlight of this project will be the traditional Folk Festival at the end of the camp, on the 5th of August 2017. We need your help to prepare and run it (you don’t have to have experiences with all this kind of work – you’ll be assisted by skilled people).
Accomodation and food
You will be accommodated in the Eco-Speicher. There is a loft with several sleeping and living rooms, 2 bathrooms, a communal kitchen and a room with table tennis and table soccer. Camp beds are provided.
