designing a ruin garden, harvesting plants and food, securing seeds for reproduction, garden and landscape art (LandArt) with natural,
retro and recycling materials, painting, and even preparing the harvested food to make your own food during open meetings and
projects.
Free Time:
You'll spend your workcamp right in the middle of nature on the paradise that is the old brickworks and its grounds. You're invited to try
out every kind of outdoor activity available to you: swimming in the lake or small pool, cycling, playing football and table tennis, and -
during the evenings - sitting around the campfire to watch the stars. There's a lake for swimming nearby that's easily reachable by
bike. Besides this, there are also cats and sheep in the area who might be ready to go for a walk with you! And of course, you could
cycle into the nearby small towns of Calau or Gahlen in the evenings, or even travel to Berlin, Dresden, Leipzig, Poland or the Czech
Republic at the weekend.
