We helped with renovation of a farm art center

22. - 24.3.2019

March with a campfire on a farm? That’s exactly what we did! On the third weekend of March, eight volunteers from 3 countries spent 64 hours helping to renovate an independent cultural center called Farmstudio. We got really sweaty this weekend.

On Saturday it was so beautiful that some of us had to use a sunscreen. Despite the work being physically demanding, we managed to clean a rainwater tank from 1933, at the back of the original building we turned the compost pile, prepared flower beds for the new season, built a stone wall, sanded and painted a couple of windows, removed a lot of door handles from old fire doors, which will be repurposed as a new ceiling and we also cleared a driveway from shrubs and bushes. But besides working, we also had a lot of fun, of course. The weekend-long cooking served as a perfect teambuilding (special thanks goes to the team of Slovak mums!), we also paid a visit to the famous local pastry shop, went for an afternoon trip to the valley of Harasov reservoir in the beautiful Kokořínsko protected area and also enjoyed an evening cultural program of Farmstudio, with campfire, exhibition, live music and dance performance.

Big thanks goes to all the volunteers who participated, but also to the Farmstudio community for having us over on this sunny weekend. We absolutely loved it and can’t wait for the next time!
