Dry stone work for volunteers on the Weissenstein

August 9 - September 3, 2021

 

Anyone hiking on the Weissenstein will notice the old dry stone walls on the mats above the Sennhaus restaurant. The volunteer project “Together for the Mountain” gives interested parties the opportunity in October to take part in the renovation of this traditional cultural asset.

 

From August 9th to September 3rd 2021, trained specialists will open the construction site on the Weissenstein and, together with the volunteers, develop the old traditional craft of dry stone wall construction. The transport to the Weissenstein takes place with the Weissenstein cable car and, like the lunch in the Sennhaus restaurant, is organized and financed by the association.

 

The project aims to give committed people of all ages the opportunity to work for the preservation and environment of the Solothurn Jura and its cultural assets. At the same time, through this joint work in nature, he would like to create a space for meeting, getting to know and working together. The assignment can be freely selected and varies between individual days and several weeks.

 

 

 

 

 

"Ich hätte mir, als ich mich zur Teilnahme angemeldet habe, nie im Leben erträumen lassen, dass die Freude, Befriedigung und Zufriedenheit so gross sein würden. Es war einfach rundum alles stimmig."

Diana, aus Biberst

"Unsere gemeinsamen Stunden in der Gegenwart erlebte ich als riesengrossen Genuss! [...] Eigene Probleme rückten für einmal in den Hintergrund. Wir erfuhren, wieviel positive Energie freigesetzt werden kann im gemeinsamen Tun! Dieses beglückende Erlebnis hat sich in meiner Erinnerung fest verankert!"

Lilo, aus Oberdorf

"Motivation, um am nächsten Tag wieder zu kommen brauchte es nicht, es zog einen buchstäblich auf den Berg zu diesem tollen Projekt, mit diesen tollen Menschen."

Katrin, aus Solothurn
