About the local hosting organizationSchmarsow is a quite small and friendly village close to Demmin with only 300 residents. It's located in the federal state of Mecklenburg- Western Pomerania and reached its peak in the period of the Hanseatic league. You can find there a huge manor house built in the 18th century as well as a church from the 14th century. Through the 1970ties Schwarsow has been connected to a train infrastructure. Until last year the old railway building has been used as living house. In the future, it should become an accommodation for youth exchanges. There are three rivers in the nearby town Demmin, which create a fascinating and beautiful landscape.
About the volunteer workThe volunteers will renovate an old stable. The stable will be converted to an outdoor kitchen by the volunteers. The outdoor kitchen is for guests of the association 'Land und Leute e.V.' (www.land-und-leute-ev.de/). They also will help to arrange the nature around the building. The exact tasks will vary and volunteers are expected to be flexible in the work they do and be prepared to participate actively in all tasks.
