This year will be the first for international volunteers in Museum reserve ‘Melikhovo’. Volunteers will make some renovation work on the territory. Also volunteers will make ecological work in Chekhov’s garden – plant trees, gather branches, rake grass, harvest animal feed.
Volunteers will stay in a local hotel with beds and common showers. Participants will cook for themselves. Locals are open to share Russian traditional recipes with the volunteers.
Participants will have opportunities to visit all objects in Chekhov Museum and its branches. Museum is ready to organise excursions and events for the volunteers. During summer the weather is warm, so it is also a possibility to swim and make picnics. In weekend it could be possible to visit an old Russian town Chekhov.
The workcamp is run in the cooperation with MUSEUM-RESERVE OF A. P. CHEKHOV ‘MELIKHOVO’. It is a writer’s house museum in the former country estate of the Russian playwright and writer Anton Chekhov. Chekhov lived in the estate from March 1892 until August 1899, and it is where he wrote some of his most famous plays and stories, including The Seagull and Uncle Vanya.
