Volunteering in the Cinque Terre: “VOLUNTOURISM”- Excursion Rebuild, Restore, Preserve

Share a once-in-a-lifetime experience in Vernazza with locals in the countryside, away from the crowds in the village streets below. Take a half day excursion into Cinque Terre terraced hillsides with a young Vernazzan guide. Work alongside villagers in their vineyards and olive groves while enjoying breath-taking views of the Mediterranean Sea. Vernazza’s farmers need your help to restore and preserve their beautiful, fragile territory. Participate in local traditions like building dry stonewalls, restoring land and harvesting grapes. Learn about Vernazza’s culture and environment. At morning’s end, enjoy a locally sourced picnic lunch with Cinque Terre wine with a smile on your face from knowing you made a difference in helping to preserve a UNESCO World’s Heritage site.

Vernazza was hit by a devastating storm in 2011 that caused flooding and landslides, burying the village in more than 13 feet of mud and debris and causing extensive damage in the hillsides. Vernazza’s town centre has been rebuilt following the emergency but its fragile territory continues to need help. Maintaining the territory is critical to avoid further erosion and to prevent additional landslides and to preserve a way of life that is centuries old.
