Activity description

WWV is a a short term ESC project hosting volunteers from different European countries within the villages of Pitsilia area (Limassol District). The project offers volunteers the opportunity to experience the way of living in Cypriot villages by supporting,working and cooperating with the local community. It focuses on agricultural and farming activities, intercultural exchange, and active participation in areas where it's needed. Implicating volunteers from countries other than Cyprus enhances our goals of tolerance,acceptance, and awareness of cultural diversity, leading to integration and intercultural experiences. The volunteers will mainly be involved in the following activities: working in the fields and collecting crop/fruit(apples,grapes and possibly olives,berries and other seasonal fruit), learning how cider,vinegar,sweets and other food/drink products are produced from the collected crop & participating in the production process,learning about other farming processes
