What locations will you be volunteering at and what will you do?

Alpakaland will be an animal-assisted healing space where Ukrainian refugee children can be psychologically rehabilitated in a smaller community. It will officially open its doors on 11th May 2024, with the first children’s camp starting in early June. Our task is to complete all the work needed to get the environment ready for camping by the time it opens. These are:
simple construction of slats and metal fences and their painting,
interior works: assistance with plastering and tiling, wall painting,
erection of large tents according to assembly instructions,
landscaping (spade, shovel, wheelbarrow),
gardening (flower planting, plant care, mowing),
simple assembly of animal runs,
assembling wooden playgrounds and painting wood,
decorating for the opening.
