Families helped at forest nursery
17. - 19.5.2019
Last weekend, May 17 – 19, our footsteps led us to Trutnov. 6 adults and 4 children went to the harmonious valley of the forest nursery Ostrov přírody (Island of nature).
The forecast predicted rain, but the sun was shining. It was a family weekend in quite a familiar atmosphere and environment. During the weekend we scraped the mowed grass, derived composted dirt, collected bark for firing, planted potatoes, rocked out, helped to prepare the car for scrapping, and a lot of work was done on a slope that needed to be fired up and down. On top of that, we rocked on ropes, dawdled, picked herbs and roasted goodies on fire. We even arrived to Mars by local buses! We took water from the nearby well, which we have also tried ourselves, just as kindergarten children do. They have been learning from the early age, that water is a gift :). On Sunday, some of us went on a trip to Kuks, where there is a beautiful hospital. There is eg. herbal garden and shop or originals of allegories of Virtues and Vices and Angels of Death by Matthias Bernard Braun and his workshop.
We would like to thank all “big” and little volunteers for their help and wonderful time, that we had!
