Volunteering in Shipka - A Week by Week Diary - ESC Project

We'd like to wish all our friends and supporters a very happy 2022 :) We'll be sending out a newsletter in the next few weeks with a review of last year and plans for this year.

In 2021, we hosted a European Solidarity Corps (ESC) project with a focus was on growing food while enhancing biodiversity and community building through supporting the local mayors team, the elderly residents and the local young people.

Each week we wrote a short record of what we got up to at the project. Here is the week by week diary from the season.

The volunteers also kept a personal blog of their experiences. To check the photo album see here.


Thank you to Misha and Philip from the Green School Village for coordinating the ESC project.

  1. It's a very good project. I'm glad to see that. I want to know more details and exchange.

    I am the head of the Haemi International Sanctuary Development Committee in Korea, who visited Pope Francis in 2014. The Vatican approved this place as a Haemi International Sanctuary in 2020. We are pushing for a "K-pilgrimage" that makes it a "holy eastern pilgrimage site for comfort and healing."
