Donations in kind

What & where?

First of all: thank you for supporting our movement!
We, the forest occupation, need several things for the ongoing new and re-occupations.
At the HambiCamp-Morschenich donations are accepted for all forest occupations.

Food Donations

Please bring food donations directly into the occupations into Hambach Forest or to the vigil.

Note during an expulsion: At the vigil (south of the Collas gravel pit in front of the forest) you get the latest information about the situation in the forest.
You can find out if the HambiCamp needs food by calling them: 0177-8707912.

The occupations are happy, for example about the following food ( vegan, best regional and without palm oil): Spreads, fresh bread, nuts, garlic & ginger, spices (preferably in large, resealable containers), oil for roasting and salad, lentils, beans, grünkern (spelt grains harvested young, then dried and smoked; used in vegetarian cooking), canned food (e.g. strained tomatoes, beans, corn), other long-lasting food that needs as little (preferably no) water for preparation, coffee powder (preferable organic-fair)…

Donation list of occupations and Hambi Camp

You can send the donations to the WAA or bring them directly to the WAA in Düren (Kallsgasse 20, 52355 Düren)
Even more useful: to hand things over at the vigil or in the Hambi Camp Morschenich.
We need all this to survive the winter!
If you go for a walk in the forest anyway, then try to bring things directly into the forest!

The wonderful AZ Cologne has an info point for Hambach Forest, where donations in kind can also be made.
