Frankrijk | Restauratie en constructie
Samen met 6 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 18 dagen naar een restauratie en constructieproject.
Het project duurt van 10 t/m 28 september.
The work will take place in Milelli's Domaine which is located on the heights of Ajaccio (in Corsica). Covering an area of 12 hectares, there is a secular olive grove and Bonaparte's old country house. Napoléon stayed there on his return from Egypt in 1799. Bequeathed to the city, the property became a public garden and a very pleasant place for walks. The house, which cannot be visited, is classified as a historical monument and the site has been classified for the protection of remarkable and picturesque sites. The works consist in restoring dry stone walls, clearing the vegetation around the walls using billhooks, pruning shears, etc. The used techniques will be : • Installation of foundations • Assembly / construction technique (Staggered crossing, avoid ""crack"" sword) • Selective cutting of vegetation • Elimination of invasive plants
Accommodation will be in a campsite, in a building (villa or bungalow). Every bungalow is composed of two bedrooms, a bedroom with a large bed and another bedroom with 2 small beds, toilet, shower, and a small kitchen. Place of accommodation can be changed (but, it remains in a hard wall accommodation). Meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) are taken together. Other groups will be formed to prepare meals. Menus will be developped together, intolerance to certain products or ingredients will be taken into account. Bring some of your culinary specialities and share them woth the other volunteers !
The city is located in the southern part of Corsica, bordered by the Mediterranean Sea. The town extends on the north shore of the Gulf of Ajaccio, between Gravona and the tip of Parata, including « les îles Sanguinaires », the Bloody Islands. Many beaches and coves border the territory. The western part is particularly rugged. www.ajaccio-tourisme.com .

Etudes et Chantiers Corsica is an association of popular education which activity covers the study and implementation of projects and activities related to environement protection, management of natural areas and restoration of rural heritage (small buildings in dry stone). Our previous international workcamp in Milelli's Domaine took place in April 2017 and had a great success! For this reason, we wish to renew the project identically: restoration of dry stone wall. You will also discover the region with the other international volunteers! International volunteers will work with 6 local volunteers!
Bring photos of your city (example : its history) to share them with the other volunteers! Places for 17 years old are really limited (maximum 2).
