I must say that I am a little disappointed that only one person feels they have benefited from the information on my blog and has made a donation to the nature center, but now you have the opportunity to be directly involved with the nature center project.
I am organising a Natural Lore Gathering from 12th – 18th September here in Lapland, which will cost 100 Swedish Krona (the price of a membership card to the nature center) and you must spend at least 4 of the 7 days helping with work on the project. You must get to Gällivare at your own costs, but we will transport you from Gällivare to Dokkas.
We now own the old school in Dokkas
and Arthur Leidgrens house
Both require repair works, cleaning and decorating.
Accommodation will be basic; space to pitch a tent or and area of floor to sleep on. We will supply SOME meals but there is also a shop in the village where you can buy food, drinks and other supplies.
There will also be some activities and workshops available (if you feel you would like to run a workshop, please let us know).
There are 30 places available and if you would like to participate, please donate 100SEK (about £10) via the “Donate” button on the site and email you details to me via firstname.lastname@example.org.
