Renoviere eine Wanderhütte und hilf beim Dorffest!




12 Freiwillige inkl. Campleitung (WICHTIG: Als Campleitung solltest du einen Führerschein besitzen!)


Schwarzerden is a small village with 430 inhabitants and already experienced in welcoming international volunteers.  After six successful international IBG workcamps, they again invite a group of volunteers to support them to improve the local infrastructure (UN SDG 11 sustainable communities) and to enrich the village festival on July 11th to 13th.  The previous camps have always been a big fun for the volunteers and the locals.


You will support the local community in different tasks: 1. You will renovate a wooden hut used as shelter for hikers: Work will be demanding in parts and volunteers with experience in manual work or work with wood are especially welcome. 2. You will improve the surrounding of your accommodation. This will include landscape gardening and renovation work. Some other smaller tasks to improve the community infrastructure will be added. The group of volunteers will be split up in the two different tasks every day. You will also support the local festival team during the village party. And finally – but not confirmed yet – we try to arrange shared activities (work and leisure) with a social initiative for kids with special needs.


The accommodation provided is the former centre of the sports club of Schwarzerden. It is now in public use for bigger events in this village. All necessary facilities are provided but there is no public internet. Attention: This place is quite isolated; the village of Schwarzerden is 1km away. Next to the accommodation you can find the sports ground, you can use it whenever you want. You will have a beautiful view over the valley; you will be surrounded by forests and meadows. Just make a campfire and enjoy nature.


The workcamp will take place in Schwarzerden, which belongs to the local community of Freisen, together 7 other villages.  Freisen is situated in the north of Saarland in a rural area. You can find many interesting places in Freisen: a historical railway, cultural and natural sights, a small zoo, a spa bath (but only few of them in Schwarzerden). The local villagers are already looking forward to getting to know you and to welcoming you at the local village festival. We will do our best to arrange excursions with the support of locals but due to the poot public transport they will for sure be limited.  The project is perfect for volunteers who enjoy being outside and in nature.
