Let's make Wooden Furniture together & Afforest environment in Xiluo
Description: Today, walking along the Yenping Historical Street, you can see totally 142 decorated historical houses. Most of them were built more than 90 years ago. Century ago Yenping Street was the “downtown”, shops there were busy with visitors, but nowadays, many houses are empty and old. The residents moved with their family to other cities away from Xiluo and Yenping Street became quiet. Because of the "Community Renaissance" movement conducting by the Luoyoung Foundation and local government, the street becomes fabulous! In the past 5 years, we have invited many cultural groups and artists to long stay in Xiluo, and host different performances. We also hosted 5 international work camps which were focused on renovate heritage houses.

Volunteer will have a great time here for sure. The backpacker house is just near by the working place. And the backpacker house belongs to Rotary Club of Xiluo.
