***We regret to inform you that this project has been cancelled due to receiving a limited number of participant applications.***

THE PROJECT:

The group will work with the local project partner Lebenshof « Wendy‐Welt« . The aim of this project, who is organizing the mini-workcamp, is to take in animals that have been abandoned or that people don’t want anymore and offer them a safe space to live.

The participants will work in “Wendy-Welt” (Wilerweg 3, 5317 Hettenschwil).

Volunteers with kids and minimal age? This Mini-Workcamp is open to families with children over 12 years old, as long as they are accompanied by an adult.

TYPE OF WORK: We will be a group of max. 20 volunteers. The group of volunteers will gather up cut grass, restack piles of branches that have that have slipped in width, cut the high grass in the hedges with sickles so that the young shrubs have room to grow, free sand and stone piles from vegetation/overgrowth, cut out blackthorns and thistles, check trees to make sure the protection is not too close and otherwise loosen or remove them, and clear bee flowers of overgrowth, etc. The work that needs to be done is absolutely manual work, practically nothing can be done with machines.
