Arbeit

In this work camp, you will help with the stage design construction in an open-air theatre! Support the theatre of Heidenheim in preparing the summer season when ‘The Count of Monte Cristo’ will be performed on stage. You will screw, nail, and paint. Smaller requisites for the play need to be manufactured, too. There will be a professional stage designer and instructor to guide and help you with all tasks. Some experience in manual and/or construction work and in using tools like cordless screwdrivers or paint brushes is highly recommended!

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will be accommodated directly on the project side: Next to the theatre stage, there is huge building for administration, a workshop, a cafe and more facilities. Here you will have two rooms for yourselves, showers, a kitchen and a common room. Please bring a sleeping bag!

Lage und Freizeit

Heidenheim an der Brenz is a town with about 46.000 inhabitants. The area is rural with a beautiful countryside: since it is at the end of the Swabian Albs, there are many hills and forests. There is a castle and a wildlife park in Heidenheim, very close to your project. If you would like to visit a larger town, you can go to Ulm which is only 30km away. Stuttgart and Munich are just about 2 hours by train.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Your host is the Open-Air Theatre Heidenheim, the 2nd largest open-air theatre in Southern Germany. The theatre is surrounded by forest and can accommodate 1100 spectators. Each year, it offers theatre plays for children and adults, as well as performances like music or poetry slams. It is run by a non-profit association and celebrated its 100th anniversary last year. This project is perfect for everyone who is interested in theatre and wants to have a look behind the scenes! Have a look at Heidenheim theatre here: www.naturtheater.de

Weitere Infos

International volunteers have supported the open-air theatre Heidenheim already in the past years with the preparation of the summer seasons as well as maintenance work during autumn. Since the theatre is entirely run by a non-profit association, local volunteers are more than happy about the international help. By supporting the association at the theatre, you help support the sustainable development of the community (UN SDG 11).

Arbeit

The workcamp is going to help with a continuous transformation of forest into a light wood pasture. You will clear out certain areas of the forest, plant young oak trees and build wooden fences around them to protect them from the grazing animals. A second project will be the improvement of a hiking path through the nature park: You will build two footbridges and level the path. In case of rainy weather, you will install bird nesting boxes and carve out a birthing cave for wildcats.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will be accommodated in the local primary school building, which includes sanitary facilities and a kitchen. You will be able to shower in the school gym next door. Camp beds are provided, but please bring a sleeping bag. There is a bakery in the village and a supermarket in the next village, which can be reached by foot.

Lage und Freizeit

Kappel-Grafenhausen is situated right at the border to France, next to the Rhine river and the nature park with beautiful landscape in which you will be working. In addition, you will be very close to the Black Forest, which is perfect for hiking trips. Of course you can also do some sightseeing in your free time, for example visit Freiburg.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The community of Kappel-Grafenhausen has initiated a special biodiversity preservation project in 2015: The Wild Wood Pastures! By introducing a small herd of Salers cattle and some Konik horses to the neighbouring nature park Taubergießen, they are returning to a historic use of land which had been given up in the 18th century. Throughout the year, the animals are roaming freely and grazing in the woods, which leads to a light forest. This allows room for animals and plants that have been pushed out of regular working forests and green lands. The grazing animals are changing the structure of vegetation and wildlife in a way that would be impossible to achieve through human hand. Many threatened species, especially birds and insects, have since returned to the area. This project is great for anyone with an interest in nature preservation and biodiversity.

Weitere Infos

This project is great for anyone with an interest in nature preservation and biodiversity. By participating in this workcamp, you are actively supporting biodiversity (UN SDG 15 Life on Land) and combatting climate change (SDG 13 Climate Action). If you want to stay longer in Germany and get the ultimate Black Forest experience, you can combine this work camp with the work camp IBG 03 Black Forest Grafenhausen. Both take place in the same region and you can easily reach the next work camp by local trains.

Arbeit

This year, you will help restore parts of the forest that were damaged by a plague of bark beetles in 2018 and 2019. You will clear the damaged areas and new plantations from brush wood and then plant new fir and beech trees in the empty parts of the forest. In order to protect the young trees from animals, you will build protective measures around them. Your second task will be to renew the gravel on Schlühüwanapark – a 2.6km long nature discovery path for children and families. Depending on the weather you might also help out with other various tasks in the community. There’s always a lot to do, so just prepare yourself to work outside manually, fulfilling constructional / renovation / environmental tasks.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will be accommodated in a beautiful group house where showers and a kitchen are provided. Please bring your own sleeping bag. The group house is in the middle of the village, so you can easily walk to a bakery/cafE and the local supermarket.

Lage und Freizeit

Grafenhausen is a very nice village within a beautiful landscape. The surrounding area is perfect for hiking trips: There are lakes close-by and it is not even half an hour by car to the Feldberg (the highest German mountain outside of the Alps). Also, the famous beer "Tannenzaepfle" is brewed in Grafenhausen and you might be able to visit the brewery. Furthermore, there are regular train connections to Freiburg (a university city with lots of students) and Lake Constance. However, the village is in a very rural area. The community will lend you a bus to make shopping and excursions easier, nevertheless, be prepared for two calming weeks in the Black Forest and far away from big city life.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The community of Grafenhausen, located in the Black Forest, invites an international workcamp for the 5th time. It is a village with about 2.100 inhabitants in the South of Germany that has a lot to offer: e.g. the very interactive "Black Forest Museum", a public pool, and a sculpture park (where the international group of 2015 worked). Grafenhausen is located at about 1.000 meters altitude; therefore the weather in spring is still unpredictable: Be prepared for warm and sunny temperatures, as well as coldness and rain.

Weitere Infos

In previous years, international volunteers have already taken many actions to help with the sustainable development within the community (UN SDG 11): they have worked on a sculpture park, built a water playground, an adventure trail and last year another playground in front of the school building. This year, by helping with the restoration of a forest in the community that was destroyed by bark beetles during the hot summers of 2018 and 2019, you are actively supporting climate action (UN SDG 13) and life on land (UN SDG 15). If you want to stay longer in Germany, you can combine this workcamp with the workcamp IBG 02 Wild Wood Pasture Kappel-Grafenhausen. Both take place in the same region and you can easily travel by local train from one workcamp to the next.

Arbeit

This year the main focus of the working project will be to link two hiking paths. At the moment there is a gap of 50-60m between the two different paths. Concrete tasks will be: cutting vegetation, levelling ground, sign-posting… Other small tasks to maintain the local infrastructure will be added: e.g. to grind and repaint the handrails on various stairs, to work in the public green areas of the village or to maintain the village’s barbecue hut. The work will be realised under the supervision of several experienced local volunteers (craftsmen).

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

In a community centre in rooms call "family barn". Usually these rooms are offered to people in the village to celebrate birthday parties or similar events, or to local initiatives for trainings. There is also a small kitchen and you can use the bathrooms of the sportshall which is in the same building.

Lage und Freizeit

Aach is a village with approx. 1.000 inhabitants not far from Trier in Western Germany near the border to Luxemburg. It offers several pubs but no shops, friendly people and a beautiful landscape. The village is situated in a deep valley, the different houses climb up the steep hills. You can go hiking, make barbecues, discover nature, and have different activities together with locals (e.g.an international cooking event or a training session together with the local voluntary fire-brigadeaeuro). The number of excursions will be limited due to the poor local transport but for sure you will visit Trier, the oldest German city with many Roman sights (as Porta Nigra), a famous cathedral, many clubs and events ...

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Aach is a small village not far from Trier. After three great international workcamps between 2017 and 2019, the local community is really enthusiastic about workcamps. If you look for a project answering a local need combined with an intense exchange with locals, Aach is definitively the right place to be.
