The volunteers take care of the chestnut forests. The work mainly involves grass cutting and haymaking between the trees. Sometimes it can be a bit repetitive but the result will make you feel satisfied! 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 and that the land is very steep! Working hours are normally 6 hours a day, but they can vary depending on the weather. Be aware that in the summer weeks the workcamp hosting partner has a lot to do – therefore your supporting hands are especially needed and this workcamp is not about a summer holiday in Soazza.

The volunteers will be accommodated in a mountain-house. Mattresses and pillows are available. Please be aware that there is only one mixed bedroom (so NO smaller single bedrooms). In case you are willing to camp on your own, it is possible to bring your own tent, camping mattress & sleeping bag. There are sufficient toilets and also showers with hot water. There is no washing machine available. There is NO internet access except through mobile phones (providers Swisscom & Sunrise) – be aware that in Switzerland there are high roaming costs. The group of volunteers will prepare their own food.

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.

A good physical condition is required! In case you do not feel comfortable walking in steep environment, please choose another workcamp.

The volunteers must bring their own sleeping bag, sturdy mountain boots, clothes for working, raingear, and clothing suitable 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.

The project promotes biodiversity and knowledge about local history and therefore meets SCI Switzerland's goals to support nature and landscape preservation and the conservation of local traditions.

You should be ready to de-connect from urban life and internet for the duration of the workcamp.

Some food can be obtained from regional and sustainable resources (e.g. eggs, some meat and cheese) – we recommend you to limit your meat consumption, so as to contribute to the camp’s principle of sustainability.

Please be aware that there are small friendly and shy lizards and some insects around the house.
