About the local hosting organizationOur Cultural Asotiation “Acequias para la vida” aims to preserve the environment and to improve the population living standards in this isolated rural area, placed in Sierra Nevada's southern face. We have implemented different projects with the help of National Park funds, like measuring the water flow in the different irrigation channels along the Trevelez river valley, and planting three varieties of resistant chestnuts in our land. During the summers of 2014 and 2016 we have organized 5 volunteers’ camps to get an English immersion for the children and adults in the area. This year, we need to focus on finishing the restoration of the Asotiation headquarters in order to keep going with future camps addressed to the community.
