The volunteers take care of the chestnut forests. The work mainly involves grass cutting and haymaking between the trees. Under certain circumstances, it may also be possible to carry out other landscape conservation work, such as clearing the bushes, collecting stones, etc. Be aware that the work is physically demanding!

Accommodatie en maaltijden

The volunteers will be accommodated in a building. Mattresses and pillows are available. There are sufficient toilets and also showers with hot water. There is no washing machine available. And there is no internet access except through mobile phones (providers Swisscom & Sunrise) – be aware that in Switzerland there are high roaming costs. The volunteers will prepare their own food. Whether they also will shop themselves or give the project partner a shopping list is yet to be determined.


The aim of Fondazione Mont Grand is to enhance the landscape of the mountain pasture of Mont Grand near Soazza, where groups of houses are scattered here and there. The foundation takes care of the characteristic sparse chestnut woods, maintains the historic buildings, provides knowledge about biodiversity and cultural history through educational activities and is committed to sustainable tourism. The chestnut forests represent a traditional form of land use that was widespread until after the Second World War and has since been largely abandoned.


The volunteers must bring their own sleeping bag, sturdy mountain boots, clothes for working, raingear (a waterproof jacket etc.), as well as clothing for sunny weather. There are a lot of ticks in the area, so it is advisable to bring working gloves, tweezers, and/or tick repellents.
