This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

You will contribute to renovate the house of “Verger-Refuge” located in the middle of the city. That wooden house has suffered from floods and therefore needs to be repaired in order to welcome children in a natural and safe environment once again. To be more specific, you are going to have to restore the main hall by repainting the walls and preparing the floor for its new coating. Depending on your progress, you may have to do some various enhancement works around. This place is quite crowded and hosts a lot of events; there is no doubt you will benefit from Gradignan’s people support in your endeavour.
You will be staying on the “Clos du Vivier” leisure center. You will sleep under tents for 2 that will be provided. Please bring your sleeping bag. There will also be a collective tent for cooking and diverse activities. You will share collective tasks and prepare meals as a group. You will also have to manage a budget provided by the group facilitators and participate in grocery shopping, giving priority to healthy and local foods.
Gradignan city is very close form Bordeaux that you will be able to visit easily along with the Garonne region.
The municipality of Eaux Bonnes, where you were placed, was damaged by a big flood last month and the city was classified as a natural disaster. We did our best to find a solution to do the camp; unfortunately we had to cancel it. In the same time, the city of Gradignan, in the frame of their sustainable development program, wanted to organise a workcamp to associate locals and youth from the city to international volunteers on activities useful to the community. Gradignan is an important city with several green areas (20 parks in total) and the strong will to offer their inhabitants a sustainable city policy that everyone can be part of. With this proposal, we would like to propose an alternative to the camp of Eaux Bonnes. The framework of the camp won’t be the same, but we will give you all the means to travel to Pyrenees Mountains during the week-end so that you can enjoy it and organise long trek and different activities in this region. You will also be able to reach the Atlantic Ocean and its beautiful beaches, less than 1 hour away!
Take working clothes and shoes, together with rain and cold gear. Nights can be fresh so take a good sleeping bag. Foreigners belonging to the European Union must bring with them a personal EHIC (European Health Insurance Card), and everybody must, in any case, bring their insurance certificate. If health issues happen on the project, volunteers will have to pay for it, and then be reimbursed once back in their home country.
