Sign up and come and experience two weeks of volunteering in an authentic district of Noyon! Built in Roman times, Noyon has grown through the ages and left its mark. The town was notably home to the coronation of Charlemagne. Thus, it is possible today to walk in the heart of the cathedral quarter, a true witness of the medieval organization. However, its history does not stop there. Noyon also bears witness to the impact of the Great War. You will renovate a big wall located in front of the Noyon cathedral, in the heart of the town centre. The intervention will consist in unjoining a wall on the public domain and to carry out visible stone coatings.

Work

Your mission will be to continue the eco-construction work started by volunteers from previous years for the creation of an outdoor kitchen on the site. You will also participate in the construction of a collective garage in collaboration with volunteers from the local recycling store. This work will allow you to learn about natural (straw, earth) and eco-responsible construction techniques. At the same time, the camp allows volunteers each year to create an artistic creation (play, concert, puppet show, song) linked to a topical theme. You will be supervised by two campleaders as well as volunteers. Two former volunteers will also join the young volunteers.

Accomodation and food

You will be lodged in tents on the La Grange aux Loups site and you will have sanitary facilities and showers on site. An outdoor kitchen and living space will also be available. Installation are rudimentary but comfortable. With the help of your campleaders, you will actively participate in the organization of daily life: meal preparation, dishes, storage, cleaning, garden maintenance. As much as possible, meals will be prepared using local and organic products corresponding to the special attention paid by the Base Nature Vercors association to the management of resources, waste on site and the origin of food. In this perspective, you will certainly reduce during the camp your consumption of meat and thus of your impact on the planet. Lovers of outdoor life, this camp is for you

Location and leisure

Located in the heart of the Vercors Regional Natural Park, BASE NATURE VERCORS is located a few kilometers from the center of the village of Vassieux-en-Vercors. Mountain village located at over 1,000 m above sea level, it was a major site of the French Resistance during the Second World War. A museum dedicated to the history of the maquis will allow you to discover this part of local history. You can organize many leisure and discovery activities with the association s animators: hiking, group games, visit to local producers, visit to a Ressourcerie (recycling centre)

Project hosted by

Die Ligue de l’Enseignement ist eine Organisation, die Aktivitäten und Veranstaltungen im kulturellen, sportlichen, bildenden und allgemein freizeitlichen Bereich anbietet. Sie existiert schon seit über 150 Jahren und ist auf lokaler, regionaler und nationaler Ebene vertreten. Die Ligue de l’Enseignement des Côtes d’Armor engagiert sich auf lokaler Ebene im Departement Côtes d’Armor. Beispiele für Aktivitäten, die unsere Organisation anbietet, sind die Aktion „Lire et faire lire“, bei der Freiwillige Kindern vorlesen, um ihre Leidenschaft für das Lesen weiterzugeben. Außerdem informieren wir Jugendliche über die Möglichkeit im Rahmen eines Europäischen Freiwilligendienstes ins Ausland zu gehen. Des Weiteren agiert die Ligue de l’Enseignement des Côtes d’Armor sowohl als Sende- als auch als Empfangs- und als koordinierende Organisation für den Europäischen Freiwilligendienst. Eine weitere große Aufgabe des internationalen/europäischen Bereichs der Organisation ist das Organisieren von deutsch-französischen Workcamps in der Bretagne. Dabei kommen deutsche und französische Jugendliche zusammen, um dabei zu helfen das kulturelle Erbe aufrecht zu erhalten. Sie legen beispielsweise zugewachsene Wanderwege wieder frei, renovieren eine Trockenmauer oder säubern den Strand. Dabei wird aber vor allem auf den kulturellen Austausch zwischen den Jugendlichen Wert gelegt.

Work

This project will continue work accomplished in previous years. You will rehabilite the surrounding walls of the estate: set the scaffolding, prepare the site by selecting stones and preparing formwork, complete stone masonry, roof using small Bourbonnaise tiles, and make a traditional finishing plaster. You'll also assist in the development of the castle's vegetable garden: make permaculture mounds, weave in hazelnut and acacia, do various and varied mulching.

Accomodation and food

You will sleep in tents with access to outdoor showers as well as dry toilets. Food is provided, and meals will be prepared by the volunteers themselves in turns. Meals will be had under a big tent outside, or, in case of bad weather, inside in the dining room of the castle. We provide a fully equipped kitchen and activity rooms.

Location and leisure

Location: A former bourgeois home, the Castle Les Prureaux is in the middle of an agricultural area. Since 1993, our association has worked to maintain and enhance the historic buildings on the site. This "permanent" project, led by volunteers and hosting young people all year round, remains a rich educational opportunity that supports exchange, doing, and collaboration. Leisure activities: Afternoons and weekends are collectively planned with the whole group. If you like spending time in the city, Moulins and Vichy are located about 40 kms away. If you’re more of the countryside type, don't hesitate to discover the region on foot or by bike, explore the banks of the canals, swim, or take advantage of local festivities and cultural events.

Project hosted by

Come and try out castle living in the heart of Auvergne! But make no mistake: here, we live, laugh, share, but above all, we contribute! Be part of our project and help us rehabilitate the wall that surrounds the area. Discover our local history and be a part of our future by enhancing a typical “bourbonnaise” site of agricultural activity and helping our international reception center to evolve! You'll also have the opportunity to discover permaculture through our educational vegetable garden, and turn yourself into an expert on alternative cultures and biodiversity! Our educational vegetable garden is also a real experimental ground for concrete permaculture techniques. In order to make it accessible and practical, many improvements have already been made: cleaning and re-sealing of the water reserve, creation of an insect hotel and realization of “a dryer” for example. With this project, you will be actively working for the Sustainable Development Goal n°15 from the United Nations: Life on land.
