The main objective of the Windmills of Change work camp is the rehabilitation of old mills along a footpath in Gondomar and the rehabilitation of the route. At the moment the area is being rehabilitated by the community and the work camp will help in this task. The main tasks of the volunteers will be the reconstruction of the mills, rehabilitation of the walkway and the construction of a dry bathroom using natural construction techniques. The participants will build a solar oven with reused materials, and elaborate the signs for the trail with information about local fauna and flora.
The work camp is not only about working, so participants will have the opportunity to learn about living in contact with nature, learning about birds by bird watching, going to the river for swimminging and wnjoying, visit the city centre of Gondomar and Porto, practice volleyball and other outdoor activities, learn to make ecological hygiene products, and many other moments of sharing, fun and entertainment. The group will also play night games together, sing by the fire, and enjoy themselves spending time relaxing together.
The workcamp will happen in Gondomar, in the outskirts of Porto. Porto is the second biggest city in Portugal but Gondomar still has some rural parts where we can enjoy contact with nature. The headquarters of Azes are in Valbom, 10 min away from Porto and the work we will develop will happen in Jancindo (Foz do Sousa) where the windmills are located.
Meeting point (day, time, period and place) 15 of July up until 21:00 at Azes Valboenses Headquarters in Rua Alexandre Herculano 158, 4420-369 Valbom.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided by the organisation, there are supermarkets and coffeeshops around. The participants will be hosted in the association’s headquarters sleeping in a big room in sleeping bags and part of the camp in tents.
