In the municipality of Leibertingen there are four different districts: Altheim, Kreenheinstetten, Leibertingen and Thalheim. You will most probably get to know them all during your stay. In the past, there has already been a workcamp in Leibertingen, working on a pedagogical train in the forest. This year, the inhabitants are looking forward to greeting international volunteers again Your work will satisfy needs, which have been expressed to the municipality. Also, they are looking forward to introduce you to their beautiful region.
Help the community of Leibertingen make their village even more beautiful, using ecologically friendly methods The municipality of Leibertingen needs your help on two different projects, which will both benefit their population and respect the environment. The first project will be about paving the alleys, in one of Leibertingens four cemeteries. The second project will be about bringing flowers to Leibertingen Your job will be to convert public grass strips all around the village into flower beds. This will have many advantages: First, it will make the village more colorful, second it will require less water and third, the native wildlife like butterflies, bees or hedgehogs will be happy The work will be led by a professional instructor, so no previous experience is needed. You will work around 30 hours per week and your group will commonly decide on how to spend your free time.
Volunteers will be hosted in a local social centre, called "Magazzino 47", a self-managed place for youth where social, cultural, and political activities are organized. Your group will stay in the building of the aviation club in Leibertingen. From there to the work place, it takes about 5 to 10 minutes on foot. You will sleep in shared rooms with single beds. Pillows and covers are provided but please bring your own bedsheets (ie: pillow case, fitted sheet and comforter cover in size 90x190cm) In the building there is an equipped kitchen, several bathrooms with showers and several toilets. You will also be able to enjoy the large outside area around the building. 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, washing the dishes and cleaning. In order to reduce our carbon footprint on the planet, we encourage volunteers to reduce meat and try more sustainable dishes.
