About the local hosting organizationThe Internationale Gartenausstellung 2017 (IGA 2017) is an international horticultural exhibition that will be organized in the German capital Berlin in 2017. The 2017 International Garden Show in Berlin will start in April 2017. IGA will open its doors for around 170 days. Some 2.4 million visitors are expected until the exhibition closes in October.
About the volunteer workYou will work in one of the parts of the Exhibition, in the part of IGA Campus. The main issue of this part is environmental education. School classes and kindergarten groups can learn here how plants are growing and how they can be used in the kitchen, they get information about sustainability, fair trade etc. You will help to run the daily business in this part, e.g. you will be in contact with children or help cleaning up in the Campus kitchen. Besides, you will help to do maintaining works in the garden, like watering plants in the evening or other things. Please be prepared for long days on the site of the IGA. Of course, you will get detailed instructions. We are looking for volunteers who are ready to work outside only. The host is looking forward to meeting you.
