A Feast is an event around the agricultural activities going along with a small festival, with music, workshops, and events. All the following tasks will be done by the volunteers:
- Preparation of the interior and external spaces in Tularù
- Assistance in the kitchen, reaping and harvesting by hand during and after the feast.
- Public reception.
- Reaping and harvesting by hand during the feast.
- Collaboration with other local associations for social works like cleaning rural walks or others.
One big part of the work is the self-organization and the group work. There are a lot of things to do, but we want you to participate in how this things can be done. It's important to come with a proactive attitude, knowing that sometimes you will do things without us. Being an agricultural activity, the dates of the Feasts should be 24th,25th, 26th July, but they are not fixed in advance since they mostly depend on the weather. In case of bad weather, other tasks will be performed.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
The volunteers will be accommodated in the tents provided by the host or by the volunteers if preferred, close to the farmhouse where the local staff lives. Sleeping bags and mattresses are required. There are a compost toilet and a shower outside with hot water (from thermocompost), but in case of need is possible to use the internal bathrooms. The meals, vegetarian and not, will be cooked together with volunteers. The meals are mostly prepared with the local ingredients, and the base is pasta, rice, vegetables, spelt, eggs, potatoes, chicken and meat of the local cows.
