Drywall operations for volunteers on the Untergrenchenberg

September 02 - 27, 2024

Anyone hiking on the Grenchenberg will notice the old dry stone walls below. The volunteer project "Together for the mountain" offers interested people the opportunity to help renovate this traditional cultural asset from September 2 - 27, 2024. Trained specialists will work with volunteers to develop the old traditional craft of dry stone wall building.

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, it aims to create a space for people to meet, get to know each other and work together through this joint work in nature. The assignment was freely selectable and varied from a few days to several weeks.

"I experienced our hours together in the present as a huge pleasure! [...]  For once, my own problems faded into the background. We learned how much positive energy can be released by doing things together! This exhilarating experience is firmly anchored in my memory! "
