Bernkastel-Kues is located in the Hunsrück Mountains at the Mosel River in the west of Germany between the cities of Koblenz and Trier.

Arrangeret af

In the age of climate change and global injustice, we ask ourselves if we have to change our consumption-oriented and resource-wasting lifestyle. A person who practices a consistently natural life is Friedmunt Sonnemann. He owns 4 hectares of land, situated in a forest near the small wine and tourist town of Bernkastel-Kues. He cultivates plants which are threatened or endangered and sells the seeds to various garden plot holders. The hut where he resides has neither a water pipe nor electricity, and the road leading to it is not paved. Life in this remote area (it is a one-hour walk uphill from the village) is not suitable for everyone, so the volunteers must be able to adapt to simple living conditions, live an organic lifestyle and be willing to avoid waste. Challenge accepted?!

Arbejde

Three weeks of different activities await you while you assist a youth and family summer camp near Cologne! For the first two weeks, you will support the local team with the running of the camping village: This involves helping with different types of workshops, where the participants can try out different types of sport, do arts and crafting or simply play games. During your first week, the participants will be teenagers; during your second week, families will attend the summer camp. You are also going to help “backstage” by going grocery shopping or cleaning. Another one of your tasks will be night duty: Since the participants are under-age, someone always needs to stay awake. Don’t worry, you won’t need to stay up the whole night and you won’t need to do it alone. It can easily turn into a nice long campfire-evening with friends. It is very important to the local team that you feel and become part of one big group of teamers. The third week, all the camp village participants will leave and you and the local teamers will take everything down and store things away for the next year. That part of the work might be quite physical, but at the same time this week is supposed to give you and the local teamers time to spend together and eventually to say goodbye.

Kost og logi

You will sleep in big group tents on the camp village site. Camp beds will be provided, but please bring your own sleeping bag! There are showers and sanitary facilities available, but the accommodation itself is basic. There will be no need for cooking since you will be eating together with the local team and the participants, so everything will be provided. BASIC CONDITIONS!

Beliggenhed og fritid

The camp village is situated on a meadow surrounded by trees a bit outside of the town of Bergheim. In Bergheim, you can find different shops and cafés, and Bergheim itself is only 20km away from Cologne. On your days off you can therefore visit Cologne, which is the fourth most populous city of Germany and famous for its cathedral and the Roman-Germanic museum. You can also go on trips to other nearby towns, for example to Bonn.

Arbejde

Project Descriptions The projects of Open Houses are based on sustainable principles. Therefore the activities at Lohra Castle combine aspects of cultural heritage preservation and aspects of natural heritage preservation. The participants of the Workcamps carry out works in the green areas and the forests around the castle, restoration work and collaboration in renovation works. W04 A Former agricultural building is being rebuilt into a sanitary house for campers. Therefore it was necessary to construct a water line to this building. An excavator, with the help of past volunteers, dug a ditch to lay the pipelines. The ditch is still open; therefore the volunteers in W04 will be required to help carry material to seal back the dugout ditch with the guidance of the craftsmen.

Kost og logi

ACCOMODATION In Lohra castle: Shared rooms with 2 - 5 beds in 3 guest houses, warm shower (limited hot water), 1 camp kitchen (cold water), coal-burning stoves. FOOD The meals will be prepared together as they are part of the community life, what means that every participant will be responsible for the meal at least once during its stay. So it would be very nice if the participants could bring typical recipes from home in order to introduce each other to the preparation of food from all over the world.

Beliggenhed og fritid

Lohra Castle is situated in the heart of Germany in Northern Thuringia. The castle, which is surrounded by a scenic hilly landscape, is located on the edge of a nature reserve area. Being one of the largest castles in Thuringia, the history of the castle Lohra begins in the Middle Age. The castle is more than 1,000 years old. Today, it includes twenty buildings from different times: medieval fortifications, remnants of a tower from the 11th century, a Romanesque chapel, a manor house from the Renaissance period as well as stables and granaries from the 19th and the early 20th centuries. The ensemble is situated in the centre of a beautiful forest. For years Lohra Castle was vacant. In the 1990s Open Houses started to restore the castle and to revive it by cultural activities. Since that time, a large number of Workcamps, Building Weeks, exhibitions, concerts and other activities with international participants took place in the castle. LEISURE TIME The camp place is situated near a small village in rural Thuringia, so the participants should not expect busy places and normal city activities for the leisure time during the working days. Small trips in walking distance are possible in the afternoon. On the weekends it is possible to organise an excursion to nearby cities or to have other leisure activities. Usually average temperatures in Germany during the summer time are about 20º C to 30º C; during the night it will get colder. It is possible that there may be three weeks of non-stop sunshine, but every day rain is not impossible either. In September and October it's about 8º C to 18º C.

Arrangeret af

The history of Open Houses Network dates back to the mid-1980s, when a group of young people began to restore village churches in East Germany in voluntary work to protect them from decay. The initiative to save these buildings brought together people who enjoyed the freedom these activities provided, bringing life again to these places in ways which by far exceed the craftsmen's work done – through exhibitions, concerts, making music together or just sitting by a camp fire. Today, spaces free of political and ideological pressure are no longer urgently required; nonetheless, it is now rare to find places where people can meet without commercial pressure, free of bureaucracy and institutionalism, free of prejudice and the exclusion which it produces. What should be easy – to go somewhere in order to meet people and to work together – has become difficult. The tightrope walk between, on the one hand, public activities in a monetary and functional sense, and the retreat into private life on the other, is very difficult, and it requires a lot of power and permanent efforts to tackle red tape and financial restrictions. Free spaces are less and less understood as common property, and are permanently being cut back. The idea of public property seems to have gone out of fashion, and places of common responsible work have become rare. Open Houses Network tries to create and protect such spaces. In this process, we do not want to be the do-ers. We want to be those who propose vision of initiating a new change in perspective while still being aware of the need to rely in the co-operation of others. We understand our projects and events as offers – as offers to create space for commitment, for changes, for meetings.

If you are enthusiastic about nature and protecting the environment, the come to the Märkische Schweiz Nature Park: 40km to the east of Berlin, the park not only offers unique natural and cultural landscapes, but also the backdrop to our project. By working together with the park’s administration team and the Drei Eichen environmental education centre, you will not only get to know the park and its surroundings, but you will also play an active role in shaping it. There will also be young people from the local area on-site. We will be completing various landscape projects in different natural areas at a number of locations in the Märkische Schweiz nature park. The aim is to protect and promote both the dry or wet locations, their soil and the native plants that grow there. Historically, these locations were created and maintained through a lot of manual mowing, seasoning and grazing by sheep and goats. In this project, you will be contributing to this process. You will also be renewing sections of hiking trails. There are also beavers making their homes in the park, which you will be able to admire while you work. We also grow tomato, pepper and aubergine plants on the grounds of the Drei Eichen centre every summer, but the summer is often not long and warm enough to bring them to full ripeness. We would therefore like to build a lean-to greenhouse together on one of the houses. This would give the crops a warm summer "corner" and the provide a year-round warmth to the house, as long as the sun is shining. The Drei Eichen centre, with all its grounds, offers many opportunities to learn about plants and animals, nature conservation and alternative ways of life and to help with everyday work. Whether you are landscaping, working with your hands or helping with creative design; all work will take place outdoors. Besides this, there will be a diverse programme of environmental educational activities for you to take part in! http://www.dreichen.de/

Kost og logi

You will be staying in shared rooms in the “Drei Eichen” (Three Oaks) environmental education centre, which is located in the middle of a forest, around 4km away from Buckow (www.dreichen.de). The group will prepare and cook meals together.

Beliggenhed og fritid

Educational Activities: You could take a GPS tour of the nature park, go on a guided walking tour on the topic of “biological diversity”, visit the bat museum, go swimming in the various nearby lakes, visit local cinemas and bars. In Buckow, there is a campfire where you can sit around at night, a climbing wall and also a canoe hire in the nearby area.

Arbejde

In this workcamp, your main tasks will be to repair a meadow that has been destroyed by boars. Because of many holes in the ground, the field currently cannot be used as a pasture anymore. The meadow is situated on a very steep slope right next to where you will be sleeping. You will also need to remove eagle fern, a tall plant that is poisonous to animals and that doesn’t allow sufficient space for other plants, herbs, and small new trees. Another task will be the maintenance of water ditches. Be prepared for a variety of outdoor tasks relating to habitat management.

There will be two rooms for sleeping with some beds and some mattresses. Please bring your own sleeping bag!
