    Hi everyone!!We are interested in getting some help at our campground during the next months for the preparation of the camp for the season and for the cultivation of fruit trees and olive trees but also vegetables. The place is found in south of Albania,close to Vuno village.
    The canyon of Gjipe (Natural Monument) is becoming popular, more visitors are coming lately so we would appreciate your help to maintain the beach & canyon and run the camp.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You could learn part of the local history, the way of life, and few traditions of the area .Meet artists that travel and exchange ideas and knowledge on diferent subjects.Socializing in the group of volunteers or with visitors if you prefer and having a good time,it is a way to get to know stories and exchange valuable information about traveling,traditions etc.Our ambition is to make the place self sufficient so getting to know how and participating in the process is beneficial aswell.

    We need help to take care of the camp during spring-summer season so cleaning the area of the camp, the canyon and the beach from plastic or other waste found around,welcoming visitors and accomodating them to tents or helping them to find a spot for their tent. We also plan to create an organic garden of vegetables,afford english language practicing if needed,help in art projects(we can discuss ideas) and other small tasks where help will be needed.
    For now the camp is closed and we need the new volunteers to stay minimum 15 days.One of our projects is to help in the cultivation of olive trees(during March mostly) to have a more efficient and organized production of olive oil and volunteers interested in participating and learning through agricultural practices are welcome.
