Proposing a place

Remember to tackle the following questions when you scout for a location:

  • Is there space for 100-200 persons?
  • Can we acquire drinking water somewhere nearby?
  • Are there possibilities to dumpster dive or is food cheap?
  • How easy/difficult is it to reach the place?
  • How secluded is the place?
  • Can we just stay at the place or does it belong to somebody, do we need a permission?
  • Can we dig shit pits there?
  • Can YOU be there to help organizing in the beginning?
  • What else is important?

A message by Kardan to the mailing list:

We are happy to host a gathering with free

contributions again - food, knowledge, money, sleeping bags, what people need.

What held me back is that we don't have a current english page http://ts.blogsport.de

Our public hospitality profiles in english: https://www.bewelcome.org/members/Traumschule https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/traum-schule

This is an open space and if you like, feel invited!
