Five hours of dugnad with bush and shrubbery removal with the local youth gymnasts today, providing grazing grounds for cattle on Langøya (Long Island) outside Langesund. A hundred years ago, there were farms out here, but as people moved away, nature took over. We were 70+ people, and cleared 9000 square meters. The youngsters were happy, playful and energetic – and with a brief BBQ break halfway through, time really flew by. The motivation was that each head earned NOK 100.- per hour to help finance the youth gymnast trip to Belgium this summer, so it was for a good cause.
