Let’s prepare the Apple celebration in the White Carpathians
20. - 22.9.2019
In the second half of September we will set out across the country, all the way to the Czech-Slovak border, into the beautiful countryside of the White Carpathian Mountains. In the area of the mythical Moravia region, we will visit the NGO Centrum Veronica, in the village of Hostětín.
The mission of the NGO Centrum Veronica is to show that the relationship to nature, local resources and traditions, together with thoughtful management, can protect the environment and the global climate, economically stabilize the countryside and tackle unemployment in relatively remote areas.
WHAT WILL WE DO DURING THE WEEKEND?
The aim of this Weekend is mainly to prepare the center for the traditional autumn Apple Celebration, which will take place a week later. More information about types of work will be specified soon. In our free time we can go on a trip around, or enjoy the autumn evening at the campfire with a glass of a tasty apple juice called „Hostětínsky mošt“.
The attendance fee is 450 CZK or 380 CZK for students (fill out the number of your ISIC student card in the „Voucher“ box).
