Program Details

From march 2020 until early summer 2020, I would like to host some volunteers to help restore the land around the house. The land (more or less 500 m2) is terraced and we would need to rebuild some of the drystone walls. In addition the terraces need to be leveled and drainage systems installed. In a next phase, a natural pond needs to be installed using natural plants to filter the water. We also would like to create a fire pit and similar areas in the garden where one can feel the connection with the surrounding nature.


Activities & Shift

You are expected to work 5 hours per day, 5 days per week. Shifts can be organized depending on the weather and personal preferences.
