About the local hosting organizationCommunity of Krishna consciousness, a place far from urban life, where some families and devoted people live in a peaceful and quiet environment. They created their own religious and everyday lifestyle with gardens and shared community work. The community organizes a religious international camp every year, but in the last years it became clear that they need help from outside the community to prepare for this event. This will be the second year that the community host a workcamp.
