We celebrated the Earth Day in eco center SEVER

26. - 28.4.2019

The last weekend of April a group of 13 volunteers headed to Horní Maršov to help NGO Středisko ekologické výchovy SEVER Horní Maršov. Altogether we helped the NGO with 143 hours of work in a beautiful environment of Krkonoše (the Giant Mountains).

Saturday was dedicated to the Earth Day event – daylong event celebrated all over the world to promote and show support for the environmental protection. In the morning we helped with a trail in the surrounding forests, where plenty of kids and their parents could try different tasks focused on exploring nature. In the afternoon we participated in a small festival, in which the visitors could buy inexhaustible amount of things starting with zero waste products and ending with homemade cheese. We mostly took care about the fire and food stalls. The day was ended by a wonderful performance of Bratři v tricku. Sunday was spent working at a former presbytery which now serves as an educational and residential space. Beside other, we managed to prepare field for seeding mountain rye, we helped with cleaning around the area (including the nearby forest where we collected several backs of garbage) or creating wicker fencing around the flower beds. At the end of the weekend most of the volunteers visited a small church Nanebevzetí Panny Marie.

We would like to thank all the volunteers who participated for the plenty of work we have managed to do as well as for the pleasant time we spent together! Special thanks to Michal for many beautiful photos!
