Latresne municipality asked Concordia to help them preserve a part of their heritage. The bigger project is to bring locals and international volunteers together in several activities or events around a mobile bar/barbecue which was designed and built during a previous workcamp.
Please bring a sleeping bag, working clothes, sport shoes, warm and rain clothes, a flashlight, a swimsuit and sun cream.
