Green workers Koen and Bas were available all day to guide and assist our volunteers. Fortunately, they had already done a lot of groundwork because it turned out to be quite a task to build the 2.5 by 3-meter hotel. Throughout the day, the group assembled a roof, collected pine cones and twigs for the hotel, drilled many holes, and put together the bench. Ultimately, it was quite a job to place the hotel and hoist the heavy roof onto the insect hotel! But after watching with sweaty palms and a lot of nerves, it was successful: by the end of the day, the hotel stood in a beautiful prominent spot in Bio's front garden.
Due to time constraints, the construction was not entirely finished. Filling the remaining compartments is a great task for the participants in the day care program. All in all, it was a beautiful (and cold!) day of hard work and lots of fun, resulting in a beautiful and sustainable end product. The insect hotel will soon be open for guests!
