Your contribution, donations and event fees:
On my last hikes I shared that I will soon go pro with Nature Events. Convert my passion and vocation into profession. Being self-employed I need to cover my costs and without a contribution from my participants I will need to do events that cover that need. Free hiking events will not do that, or hasn’t until now. Nevertheless I am really passionate about them. I would recommend a donation from 5 to 15 euros. 5 is good. 15 is perfect. I don’t want to bring economic interest into the group since it was free since 2009 and the donation is voluntary. I will shift my workshops to my Everything Nature group soon where events will have a fixed price. This can keep me going with at least one hiking event a week. Also I would love to convert my hikes into a real experience event instead of an ordinary hike rushing through the forest. I hope to get your attention and support. As always you can approach my green bag on my backpack at all times. Thank you!
I always have 4 seats in my car. 13 euros per person. Since obviously most don’t read my comments below I’ll state it here as well. If you’d like a seat please send me a private message with you phone number for fast contact. I’ll prefer to chose participants with phone numbers.
