Work: Volunteers will be working in Johannesberg, a small community in Bavaria. The local partner is the "St. Johannesbergverein", an association which promotes social and charitable functions, they run a nursery, a children´s house for school children and they are also planning to open a „Mehrgenerationenhaus“, which will be a social and culture centre for young and old.
You will work on three main tasks during their stay. The first task will be to rebuild the garden of the children´s house. They have already planned an action on the first weekend of workcamp, where the parents and volunteers will work together on setting new water play equipments and paving the ways. Secondly, the volunteers will help transforming a huge forest and meadow land into an educational garden of the association. The work will include clearing vegetation and building a fence. Furthermore the volunteers will help with the renovation of “Mehrgenerationhaus”, which means wallpapering and painting the rooms.
Location: Johannesberg is a small village with about 3.000 inhabitants and is situated close to the city of Aschaffenburg in the northern part of Bavaria. Coming from any directions, already from far away, visitors can see the baroque church, which was build in 1769 and is located on the highest point of Johannesberg, 367 meters above sea level. Volunteers will have an opportunity to discover and enjoy the beauty of Johannesberg - diversity of nature, the fascination of fields, forest, meadows and fruit trees.
Accommodation: Volunteers will stay in the building of the future “Mehrgenerationhaus”. There are several rooms, a kitchen and toilets will be provided. Showers will be available at the children´s house across the street. Volunteers will share tasks such as cooking and cleaning between themselves.
