Description of the partner organizing/hosting the project:
The project is organized in cooperation with the Local Action Group (LAG) Podlipansko in the small village of Dobrichov. The LAG focuses on the development of all parts of the region and helps to distribute European and state subsidies in order to improve the quality of life in the entire region. One of the projects is the reconstruction of the rectory with a neglected garden, which is in an unusable condition after years of no maintenance. Many ruins of old buildings of no historical value forbid a safe environment for the locals´ visit. The goal of this project is to renovate the garden to make it accessible to the public for cultural or environmental events. At this project, you will actively contribute to the achievement of the UN SDG11 Sustainable Cities and Communities.
Description of work:
Work: Your work will primarily be to clean the ruins of one of the old buildings which will be demolished as part of the reconstruction. You will also recycle some of the materials from the old buildings, so they can be reused for the renovation itself. Additionally, you will weed the garden and rake the grass to make it brighten the place. Most of the work will be outside and manual, so bring suitable clothes and shoes appropriate for work, long sleeves and pants are recommended. In cases of rain, you will work on emptying an old building which is part of the rectory.
