The camp takes place at the “Muellerhof”, which is a reconstructed traditional half-timbered farmhouse. It runs a socio-cultural center of the local community, which offers creative workshops and courses aimed to personal development. Nearby is the so-called “garden of senses” which consists of a small park, a play area, trees for climbing and a natural stage for events with an 80 years old circus-wagon. It also has an area with herbal garden and berry bushes. Many workcamps helped to embellish the house and the garden.
This year volunteers will build a hut in the style of a building with clay. With the help of a specialized construction worker, volunteers will prepare trunks of spruces. With such components, it will be possible to create a wattle and daub construction. Finally, you can add clay to finish the construction. At the end, the volunteers can creatively decorate the hut as well…. and of course, they can celebrate a house warming party for their building! Volunteers will do physical work with saw, chisel, and axes.
Also important is the work in the “Garten der Sinne”, which needs maintenance every year. Especially the tunnels made of wicker. Volunteers will support the household and are invited to cook typical food of their country for approximately 20 guests and the Muellerhof staff. In the end of the workcamp an international evening is planned, the participants can make an introduction of their countries. Elisabeth, dance master of the project, will introduce choreography of traditional folk-dances to the guests. This event will be open to the public.
Volunteers can explore the possibilities and activities of the Muellerhof as an example of a socio-cultural center.
The participants will sleep in the big loft of the Muellerhof (80m²) which includes shower and toilets.
