  • Description


    Hey, we're three brothers from Leipzig, Germany - named Aaron (30), Simon (28) and Thure (23 years old).

    +++ Please Check our Construction Weekend dates futher below in the text ++++++++

    Last year we bought a hectare of land in the countryside, about 15km far from Halle (Saale), 130km far from Berlin and 60 km from Leipzig. You can easily reach by train as well, take RE30 from Halle or Magdeburg, get off at Stumsdorf. There you can take a bike, hitchhike to Ostrau or we will pick you up.

    The location is exceptionally beautifiul, directly located next to a lake, by the forest and hiden about 1 km far from neighbouring villages.

    We want to develop a community space, workshop for handcraft projects, a space for birthday parties and festivals. Furthermore we would like to host environmental pedagogics activities like tree planting, pruning, habitat nursing and environmental protection - but currently we have more or less just started to build up the place.

    Professionally we have a background in forestry and economics (Aaron), in industrial design (Simon) and in yoga and physiotherapy (Thure).

    Since all of us have been doing volunteer work in several countries, we know about rewards and challenges that come along with it.
    Aaron was volunteering in agriculture in France, Cameroon and Kyrgystan; Simon in Philippines and Georgia and Thure in India for several months. Now we're proud to offer our own project for people from everywhere!

    In summer 2024 we will be busy mainting our buildings and the 12 hectares of forest, that we just got this year.
    There are many differnt kinds of work to do - therefore you can choose which kind of skill you prefer or you're willing ot learn.
    We will be focussing on:
    - construction work; bricklaying, demolishing; rubble removal; plumbing; fence building; gardening; shrub and tree planting; seed cultivation; greenhouse building; woodworks.

    Therefore we need your help!

    You're helping as long as you like to; usually 4-5 hours daily, only from monday to friday.
    On weekends we either stay in the countryside, or you can join us going to the city for cultural events and parties.
    We can also host you in Leipzig and Halle. Just text us in advance.

    Our main activities in the place will happen in summer, since we don't stay there permanently yet.

    Here comes a small overview of the activities planned:

    For the more difficult tasks in the workplace we're going to hire professional craftsmen, so don't worry - no one will do challenging or dangerous works, for sure!

    In the project we're focussing on community building, skillsharing and intercultural exchange. You'll get the opportunity to practice your english and german skills, try to do several crafts, get to know the local region, stay in Halle or Leipzig and party with us through our several events in summer 2024!

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Since we're three brothers and all of us have gaining experience of volunteer work in different locations and projects worldwide, cultural exchange and learning opportunities are pretty important to us.
    We had the opportunity to learn language as well as working skills abroad - now we want to give somehting back to international travellers.

    At our project "Fasan1" we're focussing on environmental, cultural and artistic topics. Therefore you can expect input in those fields by us, as well as from other visitors.
    Even though our project is still in a stage of being build up, we're already hosting several events, which will also happen during your stay in may or July:
    - several bigger birthday parties, with up to 100 guests, including a full range Dj-Program
    - media, performance and installation art workshops in cooperation with the academy of fine arts leipzig
    - tree planting and forest work project days in cooperation with friends and visitors from the neighbouring villages
    - environmental mapping and garden planning in cooperation with landscape architects
    - second exhibition week of our art association, which is about to be founded in 2024

    Due to our several environmental, artistic and cultural activities we offer a wide range of information and skills for you to take away.
    There is not only construction help and gardening, but so many other projects and activities that you can be part of during your stay!

    House in the village; camping. We will host our guest at a rented house in our neighbouring village, which is just 700metres far from our project place. Right now the project house is not furnished yet; but we will do so in spring, to accommodate our guests conveniently.

    We offer 3 meals daily; cooking for everyone at the same time. All meals will be eaten with the group. Might it either be 3 or 20 people who are helping us.
    Food is included for you while being hosted, but for sure, you can always buy something extra for yourself or cook seperately.
    Also we're planning on finding someone who would be ready cooking for the whole group for a week.
