In order to see the meadows in the Osterzgebirge in full bloom and to preserve the biodiversity, these biotopes need annual care. Join us and enjoy 4 packed days in nature with culture and (neighbouring) language in the Eastern Ore Mountains: flex your muscles with meadow care, dance your laughing muscles singing around the campfire, discover delicious Bohemian cuisine, experience a neighbourhood festival at the border and much more!
2 days on blossoming mountain meadows and wet meadows in the protected area "Schwarze Wiese", with scythes or motor scythes on the meadow and with the handsaw at stone ridge maintenance, with fork and rake at mowing clearance
2 days exploring the history of the border region - we travel through the landscape and look for traces of human ways of life e.g. in Graupen, Altenberg and Vorderzinnwald.
On the last day of the camp, we will organise the German-Czech neighbourhood festival in Böhmisch-Zinnwald together. The camp is open to everyone (18+) who enjoys being outdoors and German-Czech encounters. Language skills are not a prerequisite for participation; hands, feet, openness and interpreters will ensure understanding.
