    Description

    Hi everyone!!We are interested in getting help at our campground during the next months for the maintainance of the canyon beach and camp area,for the cultivation of fruit and olive trees and help in growing our own organic vegetables.
    Late October and in November we will need help for the collection of olives and participants will see the procedure of olive oil production!!
    This is one of the oldest agricultural traditions in the south of Albania.Participating in the proccess gives as a result the continuation of this agricultural tradition wich offers sustainable development and provides nature conservation at the same time.
    Our goal is to achieve self sustainability and wildlife conservation in a protected area and help more people produce their organic food and protect nature in the same time.
    Thank you

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    A group of 6-8 volunteers is here most of the time and most visitors are travellers from around the world so you will be able to have a multicultural exchange during your stay.You could learn part of the local history, the way of life, and few traditions of the area .You could learn some of the Albanian language if youre interested.Socializing in the group of volunteers is having a good time and it is a way to get to know stories and exchange valuable information about traveling around Albania and other places to.Our ambition is to become as much possible self sufficient so getting to know how and participating in the process is beneficial aswell.Learn how to protect nature along with developing mechanisms.

    You could visit the nearby villages (Unesco protected) or go climbing-hiking in the canyon and swimming at the beach relax at the camping area etc.At Vuno village you will find some old reconstructed churches or ruins in some cases.These churches will be funded from us to get rebuilt-reconstructed & maintained helping this way in the rehabilitation of Vuno cultural heritage.
    There used to be around 20 family owned small churches in function many years ago.
    You could also try to visit by hiking along the coast,Jale or Dhermi beach.You can explore a famous historical sea cave(Shpella e Pirateve-Pirates Cave) . Another place you could visit is the old monastery of Saint Theodore up the hill,20min from the camp.
