61st International Volunteer Workcamp - Curralada | 13 - 29 July 2022

Palombar - Nature and Rural Heritage Conservation will organize, as part of the 'Hands on - Volunteering teams for Rural and Natural Heritage' project, funded by the European Solidarity Corps of the European Union, and in collaboration with the French association Union Rempart, the 61st International Volunteer Workcamp (CTVI) - Curralada.

The 61st CTVI will take place in the small village of Uva, in the municipality of Vimioso, district of Bragança, between July 13th and 29th, 2022, and will count with the participation of 15 volunteers, 11 of which will be recruited by Union Rempart and 4 by Palombar.

This CTVI also has the institutional support of the Municipality of Vimioso and the Parish Union of Algoso, Campo de Víboras and Uva.

The "Curralada"

During this CTVI, reconstruction and restoration work will be carried out on the "Curralada", an iconic building of vernacular architecture of the Trás-os-Montes region and the small village of Uva, which consists of an enclosure where ox carts, hay, straw and farming implements were kept. With the restoration of the "Curralada", we want to give it a new life and function so that it becomes a place to host volunteers, organize workshops, community events, and traditional and sustainable architecture meetings.

The CTVI also includes leisure activities that provide the discovery of the territory and its natural, heritage, cultural and human richness, as well as the intergenerational sharing of experiences and knowledge with the local community.
