Arbejde

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.

The castle is surrounded by a vast green area and the volunteers will help in the maintenance of it, Near the youth accommodation houses that are part of the Lohra Castle complex there is a camping site which can be used by youth groups, for this reason the area should be made accessible from overgrown grass. The tasks will be mowing and collecting the grass. Additionally, the participants of the project will support the work on renovations on the Castle grounds.

The camping grounds are being expanded to include a new area where toilet facilities will be installed in the future. The volunteers will assist the works on the pipelines. In addition they will support with the upkeep of the already used camping grounds to allow groups of visitors as well as the volunteers themselves, enjoy the open spaces.

The hilly massive around Lohra Castle is listed as National Nature Reserve. Open Houses supports the Reserve since several years with volunteering activities. In a forest near the Castle the participants will remove trees and bushes which are not corresponding with the protection aims in order to clean the paths and make them enjoyable again. They will also will collect the wood remaining after maintenance works, load it on a truck, unload it at the castle and split and stack it for wintertime or for the fireplace. Besides that, the volunteers will continue the maintenance of the green area at the castle.

Because around the outer walls of the castle trees had been grown up during the last two decades, actually the castle is partly not seen from the valley. So, besides taking care of green areas the volunteers will help to cut the trees around the walls in order to expose the view to the castle and will transport the wood to the storage place as well as splitting and stacking the wood. Besides that, the volunteers will take care of the nearby natural protected area, a huge meadow with old scattered fruit trees, which was for a long time out of maintenance. The participants will collect stones and branches covered under the grass to enable to mow and collect the grass and afterwards level the ground. Additionally, there will be involvement in some small renovation works.

Kost og logi

FINANCES
All costs linked to the project are covered, including food, accommodation, insurance and transportation during the stay at the project. Travel costs to and from the camp place are not covered. Participants should organise their journey to and from the project place by themselves and on their own expenses. Furthermore, participants should bring their own pocket money.

ACCOMMODATION
In most of Open Houses' camps the volunteers will live at the same places they also work on, what means that they live more or less on a building site. In most of the Heritage Volunteers Projects the accommodation is located in a certain distance to the working site. The accommodation is usually very simple; there are shared rooms with simple beds or mattresses at most of the places. Shower, toilet and kitchen are at the place, but sometimes not in the same building. The equipment is simple but fair. After work, when everybody wants to take a shower, there can be a limit of hot water.

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.

Arrangeret af

Open Houses – rooms open for those who come along.

Open Houses – not empty buildings, but places with visible and invisible traces of history, places which have grown and decayed over the centuries, places which were shaped by those people who lived there long ago as well those who left only yesterday – places which will be shaped by those who live there or who come as a guest.

Open Houses – rooms which want to be filled with dreams and ideas, with meetings and exchange, by people of different backgrounds, different cultures, different generations and different ideas and visions.

The history of Open Houses Network dates back to the mid-1980s, when a group of young people started to restore village churches in East Germany in voluntary work to protect them from decay. The engagement for these buildings united people who enjoyed the freedom these activities provided and who filled these rooms with life again in ways which by far exceed the craftsmen's work done – through exhibitions, concerts, making music together or just sitting by the camp fire.

Meanwhile, rooms free of political and ideological pressure are no longer urgently required; however, places have become rare where people can meet without commercial pressure, free of bureaucracy and institutionalism, free of nepotism 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 doers, but be people who have a vision, who want to initiate something, but who also are aware of depending on the co-operation of others. We understand our projects and events as offers – as offers to create space for commitment, for changes, for meetings.

Arbejde

This workcamp is for nature lovers since the work will be mainly outdoors. The volunteers will work in a nature park on the island “Usedom” located in the Baltic Sea. There is a lot of work around the natural reserve. Since it’s not possible to use common agriculture techniques, volunteers have to do everything manually. Moreover, every meadow around must be cut and the grass has to be put aside. The aim of this project is to help to protect this unique reserve through your contribution.

Kost og logi

The volunteers will stay in trainers at a youth hostel. Full board is included (also vegetarian). There will be someone cooking for the participants. Dinner will be warm; lunch and breakfast will be sandwiches.

During this work camp you will help the gardeners of park Sanssoucci to maintain the lawns, walk ways and flower beds. Together you will learn about the plants and flowers that make the park as beautiful as it is. You will pull out weeds and other unwanted plants, move broken branches from paths, rake flowerbeds or collect dead plants and leaves. The park is very big so there is always something you can do.
The work usually starts early in the morning in order to avoid the hot afternoon sun. This also gives you more time to enjoy your free time, do trips and have fun together as a group after work.

Kost og logi

You cook together. Money for the food shopping is provided to you. Vegetarian or vegan meals are possible. Please indicate any allergies when registering.
You will stay in shared bedrooms at the project house Potsdam-Babelsberg. The house has a nice garden with a fire place which you can use. The house is also used by creative and crafty people which are super nice to hang out with.

NEXT TRAIN STATION: Lauchringen NEXT INTERNATIONAL TRAIN STATIONS: Basel (Switzerland), Zurich (Switzerland). From Basel train station it takes about 1 hour and it costs around 40€. From Zurich it takes 1,5-2 hours and it costs around 25€.

Arbejde

The community in Lauchringen is counting on you to realise two main projects this year. First, you will create a biodiversity path inside a big park in the village, in order to protect and strengthen biodiversity. Second, you will continue the work of previous workcamp groups, by renovating the “Adventure Land”, an inclusive place for children and school groups.
1. To create the biodiversity path, you will:
• Cover an area with gravel and build up dry stone walls;
• Build and install lizard lounges, insect hotels and nesting boxes.
2. The Adventure Land consists of a house and a big garden area. The building itself is already finished, but there is still plenty to build and create in the surrounding garden area, to make the children happy! Right now the team of the Adventure Land is discussing the different tasks that your group will help them realise. You should expect a lot of manual work like cutting wood, nailing, screwing, sanding down and painting.
The work will be led by a professional instructor, so no previous experience is needed. You will work around 30 hours per week, somewhere between 8am to 4pm from Monday to Friday with a 1-2 hour lunchbreak.

Kost og logi

You will live inside the building on the “Adventure Land”: There are two big rooms with sleeping mats which can be separated by gender, a kitchen, and sanitary facilities. Please, bring a sleeping bag. There is also a big common room that you can use for your activities. On some days, groups of children will come to the Adventure Land in the afternoon, and you will need to share the common room and the sanitary facilities with them. The two rooms for sleeping, however, are private and reserved only for your group. Have a look at pictures of the new building and area here (https://faz-hochrhein.de/abenteuerland/ueber-uns/scheune/). In the Adventure Land, there is a washing machine and there is Wi-Fi. Your group of volunteers will be responsible for grocery shopping and cooking together. The food will be bought with the camp budget and everybody will take turns for cooking and cleaning. In order to reduce our carbon footprint on the planet, we encourage volunteers to reduce meat and try more sustainable dishes.

Beliggenhed og fritid

Lauchringen is a small and pretty town in the very south of Germany. It is located inside the Black Forest, which means you will be surrounded by beautiful nature.

Arbejde

The work has environmental and constructional tasks. The idea is to help renovate a house which will serve as a volunteering center in the future and to establish environmental-friendly and sustainable agriculture in the gardens of the center.
The Casa Jazmín is recently renovated but there are still some pending tasks to complete it. Volunteers will carry out some basic tasks like painting, throwing out extra materials and organise spaces. But the main focus will be creating an ecological garden that will be a start of a new ecological project. This might include planting new plants, harvesting mandarins or other fruits and processing them to a jam and distributing to the local community.

There may be some other similar tasks which will require creativity and hand crafts.

Kost og logi

The volunteers will stay in a volunteer house, with three rooms with several bunkbeds and bathrooms. They will share rooms with four to six other volunteers. The house includes a nice kitchen in which the volunteers will cook for themselves in the guidance of the camp leaders.
Sheets need to be brought by the volunteer, sleeping bags are not necessary.

The aim of this camps is that volunteers communicate with children in English, to encourage them to overcome the fear of speaking in a foreign language through non-formal educational methods and setting.

In first two days of the workcamp participants will get a formation by Fundacion Cruz de los Angeles in order get to know the local environment and to understand the legal context of working with children under state protection (that includes signing confidentiality contracts and to comply with some restrictions). Children we're going to work with are aged from 6 to 18, therefore our group will be split into two non-fixed teams, rotate and organize different activities according to the kids age group. We will prepare activities and materials in English on different topics, such as archaeology, music, food, animals. With the older kids – teenagers, we will spend time in the afternoons, and mornings are for the younger kids.

Kost og logi

The accommodation will be done In a house situated near Colunga. Volunteers will stay apart from the group of children. Food will be provided by the Fundación Cruz de los Ángeles. Breakfasts will be prepared by volunteers, lunch and dinner in the house or together with kids, depending on daily activities.

Beliggenhed og fritid

Volunteers will have 2 free days in the middle of the camp to discover the area
and do any activities and entertainment they like. Optionally they can join the kids
during these two days as well.

The province of Colunga lies on the Cantabrian Sea and is located in the north of Spain, which is considered as the green area of Spain (lots of rain, trees and plants).
Playa de la Griega is beautiful place and it is the nearest beach to the center town of the province, Colunga. This place is famous for one particular thing - here the footprints of dinosaurs were found. East of the beach on the cliffs is the famous and spectacular site of dinosaur footprints. The enormous size of these footprints, some of them reach 1.30 meters in diameter, allows it to be considered ones the largest footprints discovered so far. Village Lastres was listed as one of the most beautiful villages in whole Spain and definitely deserves a visit, actually you're going to live nearby. Going to the lighthouse (Faro de Lastres) will offer you some great coastal views.

At the end of 2020, CBB received the management of a plot of land of around 20 acres, near the center of Marche-en-Famenne, in order to work on the theme of ecological transition and responsible consumption while creating activities that encourage the meeting of small groups of young people.
We developed the plot into a garden, where we lead workshops (discovery of permaculture, construction of nest boxes, insect hotels, vegetable beds, etc.) and cultivate useful resources for young people who invest in our activities.
We want our garden to become a place of meeting and (bio)diversity. It will live and evolve thanks to the interaction of the young people involved. Above all, our garden must allow us to cultivate social ties, such as sustainable and inclusive practices between more or less vulnerable young people, with or without disabilities.
