Arbejde

For the planting of trees we first have to dig a lot of holes and build an irrigation system. We plan to plant many fruit trees in the 5 hectares of field that we have at our disposal. As for the construction of the agricultural warehouse, the most complicated parts are made by professionals specialized in construction. However, the warehouse will have a roof full of aromatic herbs that need to be planted. Other tasks include wall painting, and arranging the wood. DIY skills will be needed for the construction of the dry toilet where recycled materials will be used including wood panels and hay that we will have to collect from the neighbouring farms. The working tasks will always be easy and safe.

Kost og logi

The accommodation will be in big tents (3 people each) in a camping area in the village of Àger. it is important that you bring your own sleeping bag.
For cooking there is a wooden stove and many kitchen utensils.
There is a dry toilet, a couple of showers and a small solar panel installed.

Neorurals Assoc mission is helping all the people residing in cities but interested in rural lifestyles find solutions that can facilitate this transition.All our actions are based on a central idea: cultural development of the rural environment.For many years now, as the countryside has been losing population, many cultural activities that used to take place there have been disappearing due to migration to urban areas.Thus there is a cultural degradation & a lot of our ancestral´s knowledge is disappearing due to no longer being useful in the urban lifestyle.Reversing this situation& promoting a permanent return to rural areas requires work on the revival of certain cultural components.Only in this way we can create a vicious circle where culture brings people& people bring more culture

Berlin is known for its culture, energy and offering great adventures. In this project, you will also experience some of the quieter sides of the city that only a few people get to see. You are actively engaged in the preservation of the culture of remembrance. Specifically, you are dedicated to the repair and maintenance of graves of victims of war and tyranny (German and non-German soldiers and civilians) at the state-owned cemetery in Berlin-Reinickendorf / the Reinickendorf war gravesite. This workcamp is an opportunity to get to know the heritage of the past and learn more about how to promote a culture of peace through memorialisation and remembrance. Your work includes very practical tasks like cleaning the graves and grave marker frames. The maintenance of the grounds also includes the seeding of the lawn and the pruning of woody plants such as bushes, shrubs and trees.

Arbejde

These cleanup tasks may be arranged in partnership with the above mentioned organisations or organised solely by SEEDS. We aim to also involve the local community, so some of our events may be open to the public. We hope participants will learn how to plan and do their own trash hunting projects back at home. This project is based on similar activities around the world, where outstanding results have been achieved with volunteers. One of the two options below is also included in this camp as a hands-on volunteering activity day:
A day trip combining a visit to the Hellisheiði geothermal power plant, a trash hunt in the area; and the Hot River Hike, a hike up a valley filled with hot springs where one can bathe.
A day trip to the Reykjanes peninsula, combined with a coastal cleanup in the area.
All the activities are dependent on conditions such as weather and availability of our partners.
This camp combines learning, sharing, hands-on work and fun. No previous experience is needed. Volunteers should prepare to share environmental issues from their countries and be ready to spend time outdoors, walk medium distances during the cleanups, as during other activities and sightseeing. As a part of the project happens outdoors, volunteers should be ready to adapt and be flexible with the work and free-time schedule, as depending on the changeable weather, we may not be able to perform some of the activities (as) planned.

Kost og logi

SEEDS volunteers will stay in a house in Reykjavík. The facilities are basic with a kitchen, shower, and a washing machine. Everyone is expected to show consideration for their companions. Participants will sleep in shared rooms/dorms of up to 6 people. Please bring your own towel.
Volunteers will receive food supplies and will be in charge of cooking and cleaning. Please note the food SEEDS provides will be vegetarian. Do not forget to bring some traditional/typical food, drinks, recipes, music, games or movies from your country for the intercultural evening. Please be aware some items or ingredients may be expensive in Iceland and you will need to buy them yourselves or bring them from your country.

Much more needs to be done for climate protection and against species extinction! Does it
is taking too long for something to change in these areas? If you could do what you
you wanted, then... you've come to the right place!
In our forest district, with almost 18,000 hectares of state forest, we not only take care of the harvesting, but also numerous nature conservation projects. These projects are
a lot of work, of course. That's why we can use a lot of hard-working and motivated
hands. The work will take place outside in the fresh air. You will with simple tools such as small handsaws, loppers, hoes, scythes, rakes and pitchforks and pitchforks to help the biotopes retain their special character that is worth protecting. For example, small spruce trees have to be removed so that special plants can special plants can continue to grow in the areas, which in turn provide a habitat for many rare animal species.

During the two-week camp, our foresters and forest managers will be at your side
and will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the forest and nature conservation. We are definitely you and your commitment!


The work of the ijgd is based, among other things, on the working principle of antidiscrimination/antiracism. Unfortunately, however, racism is present in many areas in
Germany. Racism is a problem all over Germany and there are areas where right-wing
extremist parties and groups are particularly active and therefore racist statements and
hostilities are more likely. In the Vogtland, where this workcamp takes place, this is
unfortunately the case. This refers to the area in general and not to the specific project. We
see it as part of our responsibility to inform you about this. Last year, the workcamp group
was occasionally confronted with racist or right-wing extremist hostilities in their free time.
We have examined the security situation on site in detail, have taken advice and have come
to the conclusion that we would like to continue the workcamp and that there is no acute
danger.
Nevertheless, we believe that the dignity of every human being is inviolable and that it makes
sense to stand up for it at all times. We believe that we can counterbalance right-wing
extremist attitudes and practices with our work and we believe that anti-racist and antidiscriminatory ways of thinking will be the majority in the end. We will support you in the best way possible, have built up local networks and are training our group leaders accordingly. You can also reach out to our anti-discrimination officer at https://www.ijgd.de/ueber-uns/antidiskriminierung. No matter which way the wind blows, we are here to support you in living out your interests and exploring new spaces of experience. With that in mind, come in and find out! We look forward to seeing you!
If you have any questions or uncertainties, please feel free to contact us.

This work camp is for nature lovers, since the work will be mainly outdoors. There is a lot of work around the natural reserve “Upahl-Lenzen”. Since it’s not possible to use common agricultural techniques, volunteers have to do everything manually. More over every meadow around has to be cut and the grass have to be put aside. The aim of this project is to help to protect this unique reserve through your contribution. This project will be done in cooperation with environmental agency of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.
We also start a new project of "creating a international herb garden".

Kost og logi

This camp is for nature lovers. The volunteers will stay in the building of a former kindergarten in a beautiful nature space. Expect a very basic accomodation. You will find one room for sleeping, one main room, kitchen and bathroom. Food (also vegetarian/vegan) is included, but meals have to be prepared by the volunteers. The group has to organize itself, so we are looking for responsible and independent volunteers. There is no washing machine and no wifi.

On the final weekend, there's an optional trip to Rostock, the nearby coastal city. The itinerary for this trip largely depends on the preferences of the camp leader, who will guide participants through the activities. Whether it's relaxing at the beach or exploring the city's nightlife, our accommodation in our office ensures everyone has a comfortable stay.

Arbejde

At the end of the season the entire site is deconstructed and packed away for the winter. Like setup, this involves a lot of manual labour and hard work but is a time when the team really comes together as we work to leave the field as we found it at the beginning of the summer.
We make sure that all structures are cleaned, dried and packed away. You’ll have the chance to see the behind the scenes of outdoor living and event infrastructure and take part in plenty of problem solving and logistics tasks. While the work can be quite physical, we find that because we are not hosting events anymore, we have more time for team activities such as fancy banquet dinners, dress-up parties or relaxing campfire evenings.
If it is something you want to have a go at, then takedown may be the phase for you! Please note that as we take structures down the facilities on the field will become more minimal (toilets and showers will be available till the end).

Kost og logi

The host is an outdoor venue and campsite so all accommodation is tented – this is for all volunteers as well as guests will be in tents.

You will get 2 days off of volunteering, days off are not the same each week, but rest will be assured to all volunteers.

The work at Green & Away is what brings us together, but there is also plenty of time for evening activities, revelling in music and laughter in our bar, swimming, playing games and enjoying an evening round the campfire. There is also opportunity for day trips to visit the local area, cultural visits or special days out like canoeing on your days off.
You are also invited to engage with our Education Wednesdays, where we spend an afternoon together learning from one another in a variety of ways through talks, workshops and discussions. If you have a skill or knowledge on a topic you would like to share with the group let us know!

Dreaming of lavender fields and Provence? Saint-Paul-Trois-Châteaux offers you a picture-postcard landscape and the chance to get involved in a project that will plunge you into the history of the town's famous quarries...

What do Saint-Paul-Trois-Châteaux, Paris, Lyon, Marseille and New York have in common? It's hard to believe that many of the buildings in these major cities still stand on foundations that originated in this small town in the Drôme region. In the 19th century, the quarrying of stone from the south of France was in full swing. The site had specific infrastructures for extracting and transporting blocks of stone, especially to the Rhône. Mining ceased after the Second World War and the site reverted to its natural state as the years went by. Today, the remains of this activity are still present, and there is a determination to preserve them, in order to pass on their unique history. Thanks to their rich biodiversity, the former quarries could become a sensitive natural area in the near future.

Respecting the site, you will be working to complete an inclined surface on a path that has been damaged by rainwater run-off. On a sloping, wooded and rocky site, you will be creating gutters to allow the water to drain away. This work is a continuation of the projects carried out in 2022 and 2023.

If you love nature, history and travelling, this is the job for you! You don't need any skills, but a good dose of motivation and a good mood will make this project unforgettable.

Kost og logi

You will be accommodated in individual tents near the 2003 municipal stadium, which is close to sports facilities (football stadium, city stadium, skate park, watersports complex, etc.) and close to the town centre. The site will be for the sole use of the group, who will have keys to control access.
The changing rooms will provide separate areas for toilets and showers. A room will be equipped for meals and be used as a shelter in the event of bad weather (heatwave, storms). There will also be grassy, shaded areas where you can enjoy the outdoors. Together, you'll help to organise community life (cleaning, activities, etc.) and take it in turns to prepare meals using locally sourced produce. As far as possible, we will promote vegetarian meals using local, seasonal produce, while ensuring that all participants' diets are respected and that local gastronomy is discovered.

Beliggenhed og fritid

The town of Saint-Paul-Trois-Châteaux (population 9,000) is located in the Drôme department, in the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region, on the axis of the Rhône Valley, in an area with a Mediterranean climate. Drôme provençale is a tourist region with many assets. As well as plenty of sunshine, you'll find an unspoilt environment and a warm, friendly atmosphere as you wander through the narrow streets of the mediaeval town. Saint-Paul-Trois-Châteaux is the ideal place to discover the Tricastin, Drôme Provençale and northern Vaucluse. The city itself boasts an important cultural heritage with its cathedral, townhouses and archaeological collections. What's more, in and around the town, gastronomy takes pride of place with the Tricastin black truffle.

On the other hand, don't look for the three castles that gave their name to the town, based on a fanciful interpretation of the term tricastin. However, the town does have a rich history, which is now at the heart of our worksite project. You'll have the chance to discover its secrets through guided tours and workshops. There's also a rich cultural programme during the summer, with concerts, presentations of crafts and arts disciplines, etc. As for leisure activities, you'll be able to use the town's many facilities and organise excursions to discover the wider area (Gorges de l'Ardèche, Montélimar, Grotte Chauvet, etc.).

Arrangeret af

The town of Saint-Paul-Trois-Châteaux is attached to its history and heritage. It is a tourist town in the Drôme Provençale region that is also keen to protect the environment. By hosting this third volunteer work camp, Saint-Paul-Trois-Châteaux aims to reveal the cultural richness of its region by combining heritage and nature.

Remember to bring gloves and suitable clothing for the job. You'll be working on a steep site, so it's essential to wear hiking boots with raised, notched uppers, reinforced if possible to prevent the risk of injury. For leisure activities as well as on site, you need to bring clothing that is suited to the climate (temperatures can be very hot in summer). Don't forget sun protection (a hat or cap is essential, sunglasses and sunscreen with a high protection factor, etc.) and a swimming costume (no swimming shorts for men) for swimming at the water sports complex or whitewater activities.

For sleeping, remember to take a duvet and a pillowcase (you can put things in it and easily make a pillow). You should also bring a backpack (in addition to your luggage), comfortable trainers and a pair of flip-flops. You'll also need to pack the following essential accessories: a mobile phone charger, a water bottle, a set of bandages and a headlamp or torch.

Social events will be organised in collaboration with our leaders and according to your wishes. If you'd like to share a little of your culture (recipes, traditional stories, unusual objects, music, etc.), don't hesitate to take a little piece of your country/region in your backpack, as well as a small Bluetooth speaker!

On the last day (14/08), the departure time is usually set in the morning.

Arbejde

Take part in the rehabilitation of an old mill, in the charming town of Isle, in the heart of the forest!
You will continue to restore the mill area, clearing weeds, consolidating and solidifying the walls and rebuilding its destroyed parts. The area you will work on corresponds to the junction zone between the stream and the waterwheel mechanism. You will be supervised by a technical leader who will teach you different traditional methods.

Kost og logi

You will be accommodated in individual tents, with sanitary facilities, a kitchen and a communal living room where you will enjoy a beautiful view of the surrounding countryside. You will share the various collective tasks (cleaning, activities, etc.) and prepare meals together.

A budget will be allocated to the leaders, and you will help with the shopping and meal preparation, giving priority to healthy, local products. Our aim is to encourage vegetarian eating using local, seasonal produce, while respecting participants' diets and discovering local cuisine together. WIFI is available. The laundry will be done by hand.

Beliggenhed og fritid

Isle is a French town located in the department of Haute-Vienne in the New Aquitaine region, bordering the town of Limoges, famous for its porcelain, but rich in history and heritage.
The commune benefits from an exceptional living environment where nature is omnipresent.

In the town centre, flowery gardens, green spaces and leisure facilities are to be discovered alongside local shops and services. Just a few minutes walk away, Isle has a rural protected area shaped by the two valleys of the Vienne and Aurence rivers. Throughout the woods, meadows and fields, there are the several castles and manor houses that together make up the town, with an urban dynamism offered by the town of Limoges, only 5 minutes away.

Arrangeret af

The municipality of Isle plans to restore an old mill and its miller house in the forest located close to town. To do so, several volunteering works will be undertaken: the construction of a shelter for hunters, an educational room for the leisure centre, a hiking trail and the reactivation of the mill.

Through this project, you will participate in this restoration and you will discover and share a human and cultural experience with the inhabitants of the town. You will also be near the French capital of porcelain, Limoges.

Rejsevejledning til mødested

The meeting point is scheduled at Limoges-Benedictins train station on the 31st of July at the end of the afternoon. The exact meeting time will be given with the infosheet which will be sent at the latest 4 weeks before the start of the workcamp. On the last day (14/08), the departure time is usually set in the morning.

From Paris, you can take a train from Paris - Gare d’Austerlitz train station, regular departures are scheduled throughout the day to Limoges (about one train every hour). The trip lasts around 3 and a half hours.

If you are coming by plane first, remember that you will need some time to commute from the airport to the train station, therefore we recommend that you arrive early enough for you not to rush and have a stress free travel.

If possible, please consider using low-carbon emissions transportation (train and bus rather than aeroplane) for a sustainable international workcamp.
The trains are open to booking about 4 months before the departure dates, accessible on the following website: https://www.sncf-connect.com/en-en/
