Švýcárna is ready for the spring season!

5. - 7.4.2019

On the first weekend of April, we went to Švýcárna again, deep in the valley of the Moravian Karst. 12 volunteers and one “dog volunteer” worked together amazing 108 hours of volunteer work.

We helped with the final adjustments of Dobrodomek (house of good deeds), which will open its doors to the public in the upcoming weeks. It will serve not only as a shelter for passers-by, but will also replace the current forest bar. In addition, we helped with the spring cleaning of the area – we chopped the wood, built a stone wall, moved bricks, stored the wooden beams, raked the leaves and set stones along the driveway. In the free time we tried the basics of the improvisational theater, enjoyed cup of coffee in the sun, practiced acro yoga and spent the evening with music at the campfire with a cold beer from the forest bar. The next day we visited the Jáchymka Cave and at the end some of us enjoyed walking on the glass shards! Then we said goodbye to our great Švýcárna and managed to catch the train in the last second.

We would like to thank all the volunteers not only for the work they’ve done, but also for the friendly and open atmosphere we created throughout the weekend!
