Participatory activity of Rural Heritage pilot


Saturday 15 February 2020 in Sorbas, Almería (Spain), MEMOLab, REACH project and local associations had collaborate in the cleanliness of Fuente de los Caños.
This monumental fountain, abandoned decades ago, gave water to the town and was used as a laundry. Here, much of the social life of the community developed.
The importance of this source is that it is supplied by a water mine, now practically lost.

University of Granada, leader of REACH Rural Heritage Pilot, conducted the participatory event in which more than 100 volunteers took part.
This activity has led, in addition to dissemination and teamwork, the empowerment of several groups that are acting to find the mine and put it back into operation.
