Burning Stairs --> Freiland Build Weekend 10-12 May

Build Weekend 10-12 May

Freiland has completely demolished the rotting stairs that led up and down the site. They have asked for our help in building new stairs! Hopefully... we can burn the old ones.

We would love to invite anyone from the community who wants to come out and camp at Freiland for the weekend (or part of the weekend).

The site is BEAUTIFUL this time of year - everything is blooming, the sun rises and sun sets are amazing, the bonfires are big, and there are tons of quiet moments away from the bustle of the city.

What is needed
- Workers with tools who can help build the stairs
- Extra pairs of willing hands who want to learn some construction (if you can bring tools you have, that is useful)
- People who want to come and fluff the workers
- Cooks/Kitchen experts who can bring food and help communal cooking

We'd love to show our support to Freiland and help make our space even more beautiful!!

Please post in the thread if you would like to attend and what you can bring!

Transport Costs

Since this is a work weekend, we want to help those coming to site. We are considering covering train tickets and/or gas to get to site for those who would travel by car (and take others with you). More info to come!

I'm in! This will be awesome to make our location even better, and to connect more with the Freiland guys also!

Remy Schneider

Remy Schneider April 22nd, 2019 13:00

I will definitely be there with Waldo - and Beau!

waldo

waldo April 22nd, 2019 18:33

Would it make sense to make this a Facebook event or would that open the door too much?

Remy Schneider

Remy Schneider April 22nd, 2019 19:33

FB event already made ;)

MT

Myriam TheWanderer April 22nd, 2019 22:32

That sounds good. I am on a work trip till Friday evening, but I would love to help as well. Would prefer to build or fluff (no tools though... Maybe can borrow a hammer somewhere

The Lord of Fire (Schatzmeister) April 23rd, 2019 12:02

I will be there with Tools and a Nino.
It costs about 60€ return petrol with a car. And so we could take 3 or 4 of those before having to think about financials. 3-4 rental cars is a completely different story, at about 200€ return each.
Please network some vehicles if possible :)

Remy Schneider

Remy Schneider April 23rd, 2019 12:23

Hey that would be awesome! Fluffing would be super nice =) Do you happen to have a car? Just curious if you might be able to pick some fluffing supplies up on Saturday ;)

Remy Schneider

Remy Schneider April 23rd, 2019 12:25

Agreed! It cost us 50€ return at this last site visit.

MT

Myriam TheWanderer April 23rd, 2019 12:42

Unfortunatly no car nor drivers licence. Will take a train if no car can take me.

JT

Jan Thomas April 23rd, 2019 20:31

With tools and with a Nino... Love it <3

MT

Myriam TheWanderer April 24th, 2019 17:41

Hey Alina - are you going on Saturday? If yes I would love to join you in your car

Alina, also known as Milda!

Alina, also known as Milda! April 24th, 2019 19:03

Hey @myriamthewanderer it's a good question - when do we start? I thought Friday? I would prefer to go Friday as I have to get back to Berlin by midday Sun. Let's discuss again, once things become clearer, ok?

MT

Myriam TheWanderer April 24th, 2019 19:23

Hey Alina. I can only go as of Saturday, but thats ok :-). Will see you there though

Saskia (The Fuzzy Facilitator)

Saskia (The Fuzzy Facilitator) April 25th, 2019 09:56

Alina - is it you I live in the same house with? If that's the case I can come over and help you prepare cooking stuff if you need help.

Ancka

Ancka April 25th, 2019 15:57

Sounds grea guys! I will be there with Vlad. We have a car and looking for people to share the ride :)
I also have birthday on the 9th and I would like to celebrate with you, so I bring bubbles

Alejandro Pereda

Alejandro Pereda April 25th, 2019 17:15

I will join too! I'm looking forward to build stuff! I don't have tools or car but I have driving license. @ancka can I join your ride and share the cost? :)

M

Meggie April 27th, 2019 23:38

Can help as well that weekend.

The Lord of Fire (Schatzmeister)

The Lord of Fire (Schatzmeister) April 28th, 2019 12:53

Hey Ancka. Nino and I need a ride with our tools. We can cover the petrol costs from finance so no worries there.

Matt Clement

Matt Clement April 28th, 2019 13:02

Hey all! I'm interested in helping out for the weekend as an extra set of hands. I recently move to Berlin from the US, and I don't yet have tools or camping gear here with me. I'd love to coordinate with anyone who has some gear to lend, space in their car, and/or needs some help with a particular task.

Jan-Christian Kaspareit

Jan-Christian Kaspareit April 28th, 2019 20:20

Looks like I would be able to start Saturday morning. I have a cordless screwdriver and a cordless 18v jigsaw I can contribute.
Will anyone drive by car saturday morning?

waldo

waldo April 28th, 2019 20:50

not sure yet when we will take off...

waldo

waldo April 28th, 2019 20:53

Welcome to Berlin! Tools wil be available, but camping gear won't ;) If you are coming to Kiez Burn you will need it anyways, so maybe you could get some? Might have a spare tent tho!

And regarding getting there: https://kiezburn.org/location-transportation/

public transport is a totally viable option and if walking (which is what the Captain pirate did last time) or cycling is not an option, I think someone can pick you up at the train station :)

MT

Myriam TheWanderer April 28th, 2019 21:16

Hey Jan-Christian. I can also only go Saturday, so if no car will go maybe we can catch a train together

Remy Schneider

Remy Schneider April 29th, 2019 10:09

Waldo + Saskia + I will be in a car -it will be a bit tight but we could likely take 1 more person!

Remy Schneider

Remy Schneider April 29th, 2019 10:10

Hey Alina! Yes -that totally works as well =) We can get fluffing supplies on Saturday to last us the evening and into Sunday! We can cover the cost of gas for the trip! In case you can take other people or supplies in . your car that would be amazing =)

Jan-Christian Kaspareit

Jan-Christian Kaspareit April 29th, 2019 10:34

Leaving on?

Remy Schneider

Remy Schneider April 29th, 2019 18:48

We have the car Friday evening, but would also be up for leaving super early on Sat...

MT

Myriam TheWanderer April 29th, 2019 19:01

I would love to join Saturday morning if you still have space

JT

Jan Thomas April 30th, 2019 20:48

I can only go up Saturday morning as well, and would love to join forces :-) don't have a car but we could look into getting a drivy or so!

MT

Myriam TheWanderer April 30th, 2019 21:11

That would be sweet. Cant drive though.... But company would be swell to have either way :sunglasses:

JT

Jan Thomas May 1st, 2019 12:02

Cool, let's see who else might join the Saturday morning crew over the next days and decide on train or car...

Jan-Christian Kaspareit

Jan-Christian Kaspareit May 2nd, 2019 11:56

I will join 70% sure as well with no car

Daniel Reszka

Daniel Reszka May 2nd, 2019 21:07

I'd like to join as well, I don't have a car.

I don't mind coming by train (I actually prefer train over car), but then would need someone to pick me up.

Departure & return time and dates are flexible for me, as long as I'm back in Berlin before Tuesday.

Daniel Regev

Daniel Regev May 3rd, 2019 10:38

Hello, camels! This is going to be epic but sadly I cannot make it :(
Is there a beautiful soul that is willing to help with transporting a few small things to the site-storage, for the Dream I'm leading Platform 4/20? I'll drop it at yours a couple of days earlier. You will get a VIP treatment at the platform

Ancka

Ancka May 3rd, 2019 12:05

Hey Daniel, maybe Vlad and I can help with transporting some stuff with the car. Let’s me know the details. :slight_smile:

Matt Clement

Matt Clement May 5th, 2019 07:45

I'd be up to join on the Sat morning crew, whether that means carpooling or catching a train together.

Jessy W

Jessy W May 8th, 2019 01:01

god i really want to go with this group of ppl, but will have to miss. also i assume you know but saskia cant make it anymore

MT

Myriam TheWanderer May 8th, 2019 08:35

This might be a strange question, but food is provided, right? Or should I bring my own?
Also- if I am correct there are trains going to Demmin leaving at 7:42 and 9:42 on Saturday. They take 2.5 hrs. What do you guys think?

JT

Jan Thomas May 8th, 2019 11:12

@myriamthewanderer @mattclement @janchristiankaspar I will be going by car (huuuuge thanks to @alina) on Sat morning from Finnländische Str 14 (next to Bornholmer Str Sbahn) and go back Sun night. Can I count the 3 of you in, and are you OK with coming to my place e.g. for an 8am or 9am departure so we get there nice & early?

JT

Jan Thomas May 8th, 2019 15:13

For everyone coming - Like mentioned by @remyschneider already there will be food provided on site on Saturday and Sunday. If you're coming on Friday already you'll need to fend for yourselves...

And as always it's best to bring some snacks too, as well as your own cup, plate & cutlery to be self reliant... We'll post a more comprehensive update tomorrow!

Weather forecast is looking OK for the weekend, looking forward to seeing you all there :-)

JT

Jan Thomas May 8th, 2019 15:14

@myriamthewanderer @mattclement feel free to just contact me on 01793297378 to arrange details!

Matt Clement

Matt Clement May 9th, 2019 06:40

Yup, that sounds good to me. I'll reach out later today to confirm details.

Matt Clement

Matt Clement May 9th, 2019 06:41

Being new to Berlin, I don't have any camping gear yet. I'm planning to pick up a sleeping bag before the weekend, but does anyone have a tent they'd be willing to loan me? I'm an experienced event camper, so it will be returned well-packed!

MT

Myriam TheWanderer May 9th, 2019 08:36

I am in. Sorry, in Greece atm and no phone usage. Back Friday night. Will reach out then if not too late.

Remy Schneider

Remy Schneider May 9th, 2019 09:55

Hey Matt - I have a tent we can bring!

Remy Schneider

Remy Schneider May 9th, 2019 09:56

Hello all! Is there someone here who wants to tackle kitchen with me? Apparently there is already a kitchen onsite, but would be great to go shopping for some groceries and try to get some cooking down (just once on Sat and once on Sunday) to keep the volunteers fed.

Remy Schneider

Remy Schneider May 9th, 2019 09:56

We will also have snacks, etc - but it's good if people are hungry to have a warm meal =)

Matt Clement

Matt Clement May 9th, 2019 10:39

Fantastic! Thanks, Remy!

Stefan Rothenhausler

Stefan Rothenhausler May 9th, 2019 14:49

M

meowmeow May 9th, 2019 16:59

I can help you with kitchen if you need it

M

meowmeow May 9th, 2019 17:00

Does anyone have space in their car going there on Friday/Saturday and/or coming back on Sunday?

Johannes Bittner

Johannes Bittner May 10th, 2019 00:03

I would like to help, does anyone have a free seat?

JT

Jan Thomas May 10th, 2019 06:53

My car is full unfortunately... but happy to do pickup from the train there (Sternfeld station).

Matt Clement

Matt Clement May 10th, 2019 16:46

Hey Jan, sent you an SMS to coordinate, but just in case my number is +1 518 229 8550. I also sent a friend request on the Book of Faces if that's easier. Hit me up!

Johannes Bittner

Johannes Bittner May 10th, 2019 17:00

That's good to know. Thank you! Maybe I'm joining tomorrow afternoon. EDIT: I'm tired today and don't feel great, I'll stay at home.

JT

Jan Thomas May 10th, 2019 17:21

Hey @myriamthewanderer please contact me on +491793207378 when you arrive tonight... We wanna leave at 8:30 tomorrow morning :-)

Remy Schneider

Remy Schneider May 10th, 2019 18:18

Amazing!! What time will you be there tomorrow? I will do a shopping run around noon to pick up snacks for sat, dinner for Sat, breakfast sunday, lunch sunday (although people should prepare to be at least a little self reliant)

Remy Schneider

Remy Schneider May 10th, 2019 18:18

If you need a ride from the train station text me at +4917643883240... I don't always have service onsite, but will check my phone

Remy Schneider

Remy Schneider May 10th, 2019 18:19

Just confirming I am packing it... you have everything else besides a tent, right?

Remy Schneider

Remy Schneider May 10th, 2019 18:19

Please PM me on Facebook (As it pops up on my phone) if you need other things - so happy you can join @mattclement

JT

Jan Thomas May 13th, 2019 07:30

Many thanks to everyone who came!! Freiland made a bunch of happy noises about us coming, sticking at it through difficulties and making a good amount of progress that they can build on... I.e. mission achieved, lots of love and thanks to you all <3

Jan-Christian Kaspareit

Jan-Christian Kaspareit May 13th, 2019 10:25

It was exhausting, but really fun!
The Freiland people will be working the next weekends, so if anyone wants to help they'll be super grateful if you come over.
