Roots & Roofs is back, join us! (Fourth Phase-2024)

Our “Roots & Roofs” project continues this year

From 29th of April to 14th of May 2024 we will hold the fourth phase of the project and we are looking for 14 participants between the ages of 18 and 30 from European countries to join us.

First time reading about this project?

Here’s a small introduction to get started:

Roots & Roofs is Acarbio’s project with the objective of creating an educational centre in the forest that teaches about living in nature, outdoor and experiential learning, sustainability, natural building, and permaculture. The project has been initiated with the support of experts from the Greek organisation and it’s been carried out in several phases.

In this project we built a hobbit house, a tree house and an outdoor kitchen.

Returning to the current phase

As we already said, this team volunteering opportunity is part of a larger project so “Roots & Roofs 4” is based on the previous phases we held in 2023.

In the fourth phase, which will take place from 29th of April to 14th of May 2024, participants between the ages of 18 and 30 coming from European countries will help finalise a part of the hobbit house, a tree house and a kitchen, together with other minor sustainability and natural building activities. 

Volunteers will undertake tasks such as digging and levelling the soil, shaping and peeling the wood, transporting materials, building part of the infrastructure needed for the workshop and finally be engaged during the workshop, with their hands, feet and soul.

Additional information

Participants will be introduced and guided through all activities. You will learn practical skills on natural building techniques. Learning outcomes include understanding of sustainable living and permaculture principles, teamwork and community life in an outdoor camp, and resilience.
