We, Dominique and Richard, bought a beautiful property above Dolceacqua in Liguria in 2015. On this terrain there are approx. 9000 m2 of terraces on which ancient olive trees grow. The walls were built by Benedictine monks 700 years ago. Since the site was left to its own devices for a long time, we need support for the renovation / maintenance of the historic walls so that they can continue to exist.
When reaching the first stage, we focus on building a fence (733 meters long) to prevent wild boars from entering the area and destroying the soil. This fence costs EUR 12,200.
After that, it's just a matter of restoring and maintaining the terraces in the traditional way, without cement. With the remaining EUR 17,800 of this stage we can restore 148.3 square meters of the walls.
148.3 m2/3000 m2
With the EUR 25,000 from the second stage, we can restore 208.3 square meters of the terraces.
356.6 m2 /3000 m2
With the EUR 35,000 from the third stage, we can restore 291.6 square meters of the terraces.
648.2 m2 / 3000 m2
With the further EUR 25,000 we can again restore 208.3 square meters of the terraces.
856.5 m2 / 3000 m2
With the EUR 45,000 from the fifth and last stage, we can restore another 375 square meters of the terraces. Thus, already 1231.5 m2 of the total of approx. 3000 square meters are being restored.
Thank you for your support!

In 2015 we bought this very beautiful land above Dolceacqua in Liguria. We are looking for your support, as we don't have enough own financial resources, to rebuild and maintenance the old, traditionally built terrace walls of the olive trees.
