The work deals about environment but in three completely different aspects or tasks.Mainly volunteers will organize a summer camp for local children. The idea is to teach them environmental and other principles in English so that they practice the basic English they learn at school. Volunteers will also be asked to help in the irrigation and maintenance of the local parks, as there is a deficit of keepers and the Town Hall needs support.
The accommodation will be in a youth hostel hostel belongs to the town hall which is occasionally used by pilgrims on the way to Santiago.The hostel is simple but provides everything that the volunteers need. Has a kitchen a nice living room and two showers. However volunteers will have free entrance to the swimming pool so they can also use these facilities. Volunteers will cook for themselves.
