In the heart of Occitany, close to Toulouse, is Auzielle, a small semi-rural village built in traditional red bricks. Today, this ancient heritage is in bad conditions: the town’s church walls have suffered from moist and some bricks need urgent replacement.
You will reshape Auzielle’s old church by re-crafting the decaying walls and replacing broken bricks. In this workcamp you will learn brick crafting techniques, making hand-made mortar and assuring stability to a construction.
During free time there will be activities to discover Toulouse and the neighboring area, as well as workshops to raise awareness on social and environmental issues.
Kost og logi
You will be accommodated in tents – bring your sleeping bags – and will have access to showers and toilets. The campsite is a few yards away from the houses and provides space for the group. The group will share the cleaning tasks and prepare meals together. You will prepare the meals in shifts and participate in the organization of the collective life (planning, cleaning, shopping, etc.). We will encourage the purchase of local and seasonal products.
Beliggenhed og fritid
Auzielle is in the Haute-Garonne county, south-west of France, which includes the city of Toulouse.
