The workcamps will be also involve with activities in favor of the Community. We will clean a nice hiking trail that leads from the village to an ancient mill, also realizing the signs in English for tourists. We will also take care of the maintenance of the medieval garden, which is located close to the Castle of Rocca Sinibalda. Finally, we will be involve to agricultural work (harvesting aromatic herbs and vegetables) and we will prepare the Harvest Festival (14 July), an event organized in collaboration with the Tularu Agricultural Company. There are moments of relaxation (bath at Lake Turano, excursion in the mountains, visit to the city of Rieti), and with the local community, we will exchange, meet and learn together (workshop to learn how to make pasta, desserts and more).
The Municipality of Rocca Sinibalda provides its own spaces to set up a campsite. The volunteers will sleep in the tents, provided by the local host as well as the school canteen, where volunteers will have the possibility to cook with organic and local products.
Rocca Sinibalda is a beautiful village, surrounded by greenery and with a wonderful medieval castle.
Colle Berardino is an organic farm, settled in an isolated area, with fewer opportunities. This year, we will organize the second edition of the Harvest Festival in Colle Berardino, with the support of Tularu, an organic farm with whom we use to collaborate to enhance the agricultural products of our area (the grain, especially). This collaboration is made through the Filiera Project since two years.
