Repairing tracks in Dalir - Sagaland
Description: SEEDS volunteers will be joining a project in Hvammsfjörður with the local municipality of Dalabyggð, in the north-west of Iceland. The village in Búðardalur lies at the north-eastern end of Snæfellsnes peninsula and next to the Westfjords. The project will take place at Búðardalur and depending on needs volunteers will be repairing tracks, helping with tidying up some of the public areas of the village and the sea shores where there is a lot of bird life. Búðardalur is a small village in Iceland with about 300 inhabitants so volunteers will get to know and experience how it is to live in a small village in Iceland. Búðardalur has a beautiful shoreline which the volunteers will help clean in an outdoor project with a lot of clean air.
Type of Work: The work is physical and might require a good physical condition, it can at times be repetitive and demanding but always rewarding. No previous experience is needed. As it is outdoors work, volunteers shall be ready to adapt and be flexible with the working and free-time schedule, as depending on the -changeable- weather, we may not be able to perform some of the tasks or activities planned. Volunteers need to be prepared for working outdoors in sometimes isolated sites. Be prepared to experience all kinds of weather and bring warm winter clothes as the tasks take place outside and it can get cold. Bring warm under-layers, waterproofs, walking shoes/boots, a good sleeping bag, hat scarves and gloves.
Accommodation: SEEDS volunteers will stay in a well-equipped school house, in shared rooms/dorms, cleaning facilities are located in another house close to the school. Please bring your own sleeping bag. Volunteers will receive food supplies and be in charge of the cooking and cleaning activities. Do not forget some traditional/typical food from your home country for the international evening.
Language: English will be the official language in the camp; high proficiency is not a requirement.
