Travail

The path of the Monks meanders along the hillside below the chapel; it is supported by dry stone retaining walls and has a stone-covered walkway, known as a calade in south-eastern France. One of the retaining walls of the path, located under the chapel, is partly deteriorated due to lack of maintenance. You will participate in the restoration of this wall which is essential to put the chapel back in its place in the landscape by redrawing the flatness of the wall leading to it. The following work will be undertaken: dismantling and sorting of the stones, earthworks and reconstruction of the wall according to the very precise technique of dry stone construction (theoretical and practical input). You can also discover the technique of restoration of the dry stone path: punctual recovery of the damaged parts of the path, realization of stone steps. The workcamp will be supervised by a professional in dry stone construction techniques. A daily work of 6 hours is planned, the organization of the days will be discussed and decided by the group of participants. The pedagogical objective is to discover a traditional construction technique which does not require any material, except stones from the stoning of fields intended for agriculture or recovered from old buildings. Theoretical, historical and practical contributions will be disseminated. It should be noted that this workcamp is part of a more global action to enhance the site of the chapel. The population of the village is invited to take part in the work of clearing the brush and creating a calade on the chapel square.

Logement et nourriture

An animation team will be present to help you in the organization of the collective life: planning of household chores, elaboration of menus and preparation of meals in turn, organization of leisure activities and outings. The purchase of local products is widely favoured.

Situation, loisirs

Come and discover one of the small perched towns in the South of France, Serres in the Alpes, which offers a magnificent panorama of the medium mountain range of the Baronnies Provençales! The town, leaning against the Pignolette rock, is made up of small shady medieval streets and covered and sloping passages in which it is good to stroll. At the top of this village and at the bend in the monks' path, is the chapel of Notre Dame de Bon Secours, which overlooks the Buëch valley. This building was erected in 1730 and blessed in 1732. Partly dug into the rock, it marries the hillside, on the presumed site of the former chapel of the castle of Serres. The Baronnies Provençales Regional Nature Park, in partnership with the association Les Villages des Jeunes and a hiking organization, launched an operation to raise awareness and promote the dry-stone building technique in 2018. Elected officials and inhabitants will be mobilized for this operation through restoration actions and discoveries of the dry-stone built heritage (conference, visit).

Travail

From Luz-Saint-Sauveur, the Pyrenees Mountains are all yours. All the best hiking sites, peaks and highlands are easily accessible. Here, you will find the freedom to breathe freely, move, broaden your horizon and enjoy! Luz-Saint-Sauveur was a thermal hub for the noble and wealthy throughout the 18th century: the medicinal bathing sites attracted emperors, artists, intellectuals and more. Amongst the historical figures that often-visited Luz was French emperor Napoleon III (grandson of Napoleon the Ist). Fallen in love with the town in the mountains, he encouraged its development throughout the 1860s. Today Luz is perhaps the best-conserved heritage from that era in France and elsewhere. French emperor Napoleon III facilitated the construction of a monumental bridge over the Gave Canyon that splits the town in two quarters. To thank the emperor the people of Luz erected a gigantic column in his honor: the “Napoleon Column”. You will work on the square where the Column is placed, overviewing the deep canyon. Nowadays the bridge is used for bungee jumping, rafting, and other adventure sports, and the square has been damaged. You will replace the old pavement with more old-style cobbles, and hence make the square and the column a landmark in Luz once again.

Logement et nourriture

You will be accommodated in a local apartment building with shared rooms – bring your warm sleeping bag and a camping mat - with showers and toilets. 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.

Situation, loisirs

The great writer Victor Hugo described Luz as a “charming old town… beautifully situated in a deep triangular valley… When the miquelets (Catalan militia men) and Spanish smugglers arrived from Aragon … they saw a great light… They named this town light, or Luz.” Luz Saint Sauveur is in the Hautes-Pyrenees County, south-west of France near the pilgrimage city of Lourdes. It is close to the most beautiful natural sites of the Pyrenees Mountains: • Midi Peak, • Gavarnie valley, • Bridge of Spain, • Neouvielle natural park, • Pyrenees National Park (with many highland lakes). The beauty and diversity of this county presents a great historical, architectural and environmental interest.

Partenaire

The municipality has been developing a large project to restore its local heritage, especially through international workcamps. For over 5 years we have been renovating old streets, washhouses, fountains, and hiking trails. This year you will redecorate the “Napoleon Column”, one of the town’s landmarks.

Point de rendez-vous

Commentaires additionnels

Bring working clothes, gloves, and closed shoes. Bring a warm sleeping bag, as nights might be cold due to the altitude and we may also sleep in the mountains. To enjoy the mountains, bring your trekking shoes. For the brave ones who want to take a dip in the river, bring your swimming suit. Feel free to bring activities from home such as photos, games, musical instruments, etc. Foreigners from the European Union must bring their personal EHIC (European Health Insurance Card), and all participants must bring their insurance certificate. If health issues arise during the program, volunteers will need to cover all costs; they will be reimbursed upon their return to their home country.

Situation, loisirs

Situated a few kilometres from the listed village of Gorde in the Vaucluse, between Cavaillon, Carpentras and Apt, the village of Murs is perched as a sentinel on a promontory of the Vaucluse mountains in the northern part of the Luberon Regional Natural Park. An ancient village with stone houses rising up to the Romanesque church and the castle, in a setting of hills and forests, Murs dominates the immense landscapes stretching from the Pre-Alps to the Luberon. The first traces of habitation date back to the Palaeolithic! Today, the village has about 450 inhabitants. Several hiking trails cross the commune (from a few hours to a day), allowing you to discover wonderful landscapes and sites. The mayor of the village is inexhaustible on the history of the commune and its monuments. He will also show you the Palaeolithic sites where many fossils have been discovered. Finally, you will have the opportunity to visit other nearby towns and villages (Gordes, Apt, Cavaillon).

Remember to bring gloves, clothes and shoes for work. Nights can be cool, so bring a good warm sleeping bag. In the south of France, it can be very hot during the day, remember to bring a hat/cap, mosquito repellent, sunglasses, a backpack and a water bottle. The village is quite isolated with little public transport, remember to take with you some specialties from home for the shared meal, you can also bring games, musical instrument... The village being isolated, it is important that you plan to arrive the latest in the late afternoon at the meeting point (Apt bus terminal). We won't be able to pick you up if you arrive too late at the meeting point...make sure to arrive on time!

Travail

“La Maison du Colonel” is a project of expansion and rehabilitation of a small house located in Elbeuf district in Amiens to create a community coffee. Elbeuf is a working-class district with social and economic disparities. By implementing this project, we want to contribute to the cultural animation of the district with and for the inhabitants. Various activities will be proposed during the project to prepare the Inauguration evening of “La Maison du Colonel” at the end of June, 27th. Since 2016 this innovative project is almost finished and it is now time to present the work carried out. In addition, we are proposing wood work such as the creation of a signage to enhance the place. During the project you’ll also develop festive events to present your culture (food, dance, songs…).

Logement et nourriture

You’ll be sleeping in tents at the municipal campsite of Amiens (Camping du Parc des cygnes), near the park of the Grand Marais. A big tent will be fixed for the daily life with a space to cook and prepare the meals. In the campsite you can find sanitary (toilets, showers, sinks). The group of volunteers will prepare its own meals and share collective life tasks.

Situation, loisirs

Amiens, which is European youth capital in 2020, is a city of 130 000 inhabitants located in the North of France. The city is 1 hour from sea costs but also 1 hour by train from Paris. Amiens is also an attractive place with lots of heritage sites: its cathedral is the hugest of France; the district of Saint-Leu is nicknamed “small Venice of North” because of its river; the Hortillonnages and its floating gardens; the house of Jules Verne, famous French writer… and so more to discover! Moreover, the campsite you will live in is next to the river called “la Somme”, near Chemin du Halage, a bikeway of 120km from Peronne to Saint-Valery-sur-Somme. The campsite is located near a park (Parc du Grand Marais) which offers during the summer free sports activities (canoeing, climbing, archery …).

Partenaire

This is the second time we are working with La Maison du colonel. In 2018 we have coordinated together a European project which aimed to contribute to the isolation of the house using lime and hemp. Participants learned environmentally friendly techniques and participated to the life of the district implementing cultural and festive activities.
