Support for “Witthöfts Gästehaus”

In the spirit of Pastor Bode we need support for keeping Wilsede the delightful and unspoilt place where students and outstanding scientist enjoyed together nature lore and science.

On a walking trip through the health near Wilsede PastorBode`s Father said: “My son, if a man could preserve this landscape for future generations, he would have accomplished a great work”. 1910 Pastor Bode keep a Dancing Hall away from the Wilsede Hill . “ No paved road! No nickelodeon”. After he died, 1o June 1927, his ashes be scattered to the winds from the top of the Wilsede Hill. 100 years later we need again support to save nature lore and science in Wilsede.
