Volunteers will be asked mostly to take care of pathways, which are very culturally important in the area because each of them leads to old mills and ethnographic sites. Castello dell’Acqua is a very small country area. The population is very traditional and loves seeing people taking care of their land.

Legambiente Lecco is made up of young and dynamic people, mostly under 30. The main activity of this Legambiente group is the management of an hostel; moreover, it has campaigned against food waste and for the correct waste management. Take a look at: https://it- it.facebook.com/legambiente.lecco for details. We also have a new English website: http://www.legambientelecco.it/en/.

Work: Volunteers will be asked to clean pathways, eliminate infested plants and take care of the woods. They will be working with the constant help of experienced voluntary people (local administrations volunteers) that will provide all the necessary tools.

Accomodation and food: Volunteers will be hosted in the city hall house. Volunteers will be taking turns cleaning all the rooms they will have access to and also cooking for all the group members.

Location: Comune di Castello dell Acqua

Location and Leisure: Volunteers will be shown all the places and costumes of the local farming culture.
