Our group was founded in 2005 with the purpose of raising the awareness of local community and foreign volunteers about the value of the natural, archaeological, artistic and cultural local heritage and spread sustainable and responsible lifestyles. We still work a lot with the local community, mostly with children and youngsters, at school and on the streets. In our previous workcamps we have been promoting the discovery of the lost old medieval city, of the paleochristian minor necropolis of Lardia, cleaned up or opened brand new paths through the Necropolis of Pantalica and in the Anapo Valley and the group gave a new life to the restored and abandoned beautiful hermitage of Santa Sofia a Rassu, our base camp for summer activities.
No specific skills are required. Just keep in mind you will spend most of your time outdoor, immersed in the wild nature, so pay attention to insect bites or stings, especially if you are an allergy sufferer.
