Wiesbaden domain: A new role for Mechtild Hausen

The domäne in Wiesbaden-erbenheim might in perspective be the only location of the Wiesbaden youth workshop WJW. This is a Consideration that is based on the "tag concept" of the highly loss-making, non-profit educational institution.

This is true on a local farm. The youth workshop press in addition, high depreciation, rental and staff costs, although more than 200 employees, the collective content of other companies in municipal ownership, which is a regular occasion for tough political clashes.

A sale the store is already closed. And also from the Hofgut Klarenthal you want to separate, though for the renovation of which is already 3.75 million euros have been approved.
