Hiiumaa according to the Nordic sagas emerged from the Baltic Sea as a small islet more than 10 000 years ago. The island of Hiiumaa was first mentioned in historical documents as a deserted island called Dageida in 1228. The first inhabitants settled down at the end of the 13th century. Nowadays Hiiumaa is the second biggest island of Estonia with the area of 965 sq. km and the population around 10 000. It has many historical and nature sights, and there are kind people known for their hospitality and good sense of humor. The island is referred as a remote area of Europe, so EstYES feels particularly proud developing international voluntary projects for dozen of years there. Also, for years EstYES has been cooperating with farms all over Estonia for solidarity, respect and practical support to local people who work in agricultural sector keeping traditional life style and developing new eco-farming despite of all difficulties. Alliksaare Farm is one of such projects. This is an organic farm promoting sustainable lifestyle, and this camp is proposed for volunteers who appreciate and share its values, want to learn more about it and to help hard working people.
Alliksaare Farm main direction is cattle and milk farming. The main work will be to take care and maintain the pastures located by the sea (clearing around the pastures, building or removing fences, repairing fences). Another work is cleaning the coast nereby the farm from rubbish brought by storms. Occasionally there can be some work for preparing food for cows for winter time. Also there will be a need to help the host milking the cows as it has to be done two times per day. The work will be mainly outdoors, depending on the weather of course. The working time will be around 6-8 hours a day. Work will be done under the supervision of the local host and the group leader.
Incontro precampo generale: 20 giugno dalle 10:00 alle 16:30
