It is intended to draw attention to the fact that especially in this day and age, the only non-replicable resource, nature should not be wasted seemingly indiscriminately for further industrial settlements.

Location: Halver Oeckinghause - Weide opposite the industrial area (coordinates: 51.206887, 7.532790)

Further: Heesfelder Mühle with café, organic food store and hiking trails nearby

In the course of the project Scheuerpfähle fürs Volmetal, 20 artistically designed Scheuerpfähle will be installed in the four communities that have joined together to form the region Oben an der Volme. They are to point out special features in the Volme Valley, serve as landmarks or invite reflection. The X 20 hiking trail, which connects Schalksmühle, Halver, Kierspe and Meinerzhagen over a length of 20 kilometers, is the bracket for the project.

The initiator and sponsor of the project is the VAKT art association from Halver. The NRW Ministry for Home Affairs, Municipal Affairs, Building and Equality has funded the project. The Minister Ina Scharrenbach personally brought the funding notice to Halver on the Saturday before Christmas 2019.

Rubbing stakes have their origin in agriculture. Farmers put them on the Weide so that cattle could rub against them. In the Volmetal Valley, the stakes are also meant to figuratively indicate points of friction. They should draw attention to special places, stimulate discussion or help to rediscover home.
