Volunteers work with building and improving a troll path in Villa Elba and troll park in Kokkola. The tasks include cleaning the areas like cutting grass and bushes, designing and building trolls, drawing trolls on stones and ground, building troll houses and campfire place.

 

Accommodation and food:     

Accommodation is organised in Youth Centre Villa Elba in beautiful summer house Villa Marina by the sea. It is a simple house with no modern comforts: there are not indoor toilets,  no indoor shower or running water in the house. Water is available from the well outside and there is an outdoor shower and sauna tent.  House is heated with the help of the fireplace and electric radiators. Therefore, it requires patience and flexibility, as volunteers must adapt to a modest living environment. On the other hand, the Villa has a beautiful environment and offers participants a unique chance to try out traditional Finnish summer cottage lifestyle.  

Lunch is served during working days and volunteers get food money to prepare the other meals themselves.
