Multitest Apprentices Plant Trees for a Good Cause

A tutor and apprentices from Multitest volunteered their time to landscape the outdoor area of the Irmengardhof in Gstadt with beautiful hedges and a fruit garden.

On a sunny and warm fall Saturday in November, 17 apprentices and one tutor from Multitest made their way to the Irmengardhof to do a good deed. The Irmengardhof in Gstadt am Chiemsee is a facility run by the Björn Schulz Foundation that provides for a peaceful vacation spot for families with seriously ill children.

The Multitest workers’ council was given the employees’ contributions from the annual Christmas tombola to fund the renovation of the outdoor area at Irmengardhof. The apprentices and tutor donated their free time and elbow grease. The companies GaLaBau Oberbauer and Attler Gärtnerei offered a tremendous amount of support to the planting campaign. These contributions resulted in 20 meters of colorful hedges and a fruit garden.

Everyone was so excited to be working on the project that all of the work to prepare and plant the hedges and fruit garden was completed by noon, well ahead of schedule. Afterwards, Ms. Angelika Lorenz led the group on a tour through the beautiful Irmengardhof facility and explained how much work and effort went into the renovation of the facility. The facility is supported by a number of companies and organizations who realize how important it is to offer a place where families going through difficult times can get away from the day to day challenges of dealing with their childrens’ serious illnesses or disabilities.

The group will visit the Irmengardhof again early next year to plant a few more berry bushes.
