There will be two different work experiences: in the first, for four days, the volunteers will make base in Cascina Rapello, living the international experience of working in a rural social farm, growing the vegetable garden and other cultivations, taking care of the structures as well as taking care of our 4 donkeys; in the second, for seven days they a group of italian volunteers will join the experience and both group will work to protect the forest and the environment. The work will be mainly in the morning, about 4 hours per day with three types of activities: Arrangement of the camp, taking care of the vegetable garden and other cultivations, taking care of the donkeys and the water tanks. Work in the wood: building tables with wood materials (the tables will be used to create in the wood a relax-area for the local people) and fixing or building footpaths. Cooking to prepare lunch with organic food coming from the nearby area Support for the creation of artistic and environmental laboratories In the afternoon the participants will take part in special workshops in local small farms, workshops with local associations for taking care of the paths and small rivers.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

The participants will sleep in tents of 4 people. The tents will be provided, but the volunteers will have to bring their camping mattress and sleeping bag. The tents will be divided into girls and boys tents. Participants must carry their belongings in a backpack, as they will arrive at camp on foot. Electricity and hot water will be provided by photovoltaic and solar panels. The toilet is 2 compost toilets, made of wood. The food will be prepared by the volunteers, who will eat together in a big tent. Most of the food will come from local farms from the fair trade. Drinking water will be taken from the local fountain. The food will be prepared by the participants, who will eat together in a big tent. Most of the food will come from local farms from the fair trade market. There won’t be an internet connection and the use of electricity will be very few since we use photovoltaic panels. Participants can bring typical food of their countries to share but alcohol is not allowed in the camp.

Locatie en vrije tijd

From the 1st until the 4th of July international volunteers will be hosted in Cascina Rapello sited in Aizurro (LC), after they will move with the group of italian volunteers to the campsite; a wood located in a local park called “Parco del Monte di Brianza” (Valgreghentino-LC), in the north of Italy. In the past, this area was used for agriculture, but now most of it is abandoned: we can see abandoned buildings, woods, and fields. Invasive plants are growing, avoiding the growth of the local ones. To reach the CRAZY-WOOD there’s a gravel road or a footpath. (See the place in this map: The closest village is Aizurro, a very little village with around 180 inhabitants. The closest place with facilities like shops, train stations or other services is the village of Airuno. During the day there is some time for games and activities (for example tree-climbing, excursions, land art). Some evenings will be organized with "cultural nights", where one or more countries organize a dinner with the typical food and games and /or workshops to show their own culture. The rest of the evenings there will be moments at the fireplace, free evenings or some games in the darkness. TERMINAL: Nearest airport Milan, nearest train station Calolziocorte-Olginate. It takes approximately 2/3 hours Calolziocorte-Olginate from Milan airport.
