This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

You will restore a small stone bridge on a stream. You will clear the different piles of stones from the dirt and vegetation, and then you will remove those piles, take them apart and rebuild those using traditional technics. Finally, you will have to set up “palis” (large flat stones) above the piles to link them together.
You will sleep in a campsite, in a wooded park in two-person tents (please bring your sleeping mat). Activities and meals will take place in a room made available to the group. You will be sharing the cleaning chores and preparing meals together. The budget will be allocated to the group leader, shopping will be done together with the group leader, favoring products from the market and local producers (if possible).
Carentoir (around 3000 inhabitants) and La Gacilly (around 2200 inhabitants) is in Brittany in the Morbihan County. These are charming little towns that have a rich heritage, that you would be able to discover. The work site is straddling the border between the two towns and it’s a little far from the centers of the towns. Accommodation is in Carentoir. There are several hiking trails around the town and you will be able to have recreational activities in “L’Ile aux Pies” nearby. You can also visit the Farm World, a park with animals in semi-freedom and an artisanal village. Every summer La Gacilly welcomes the largest open-air photography festival in France.
Get involve in a beautiful natural site to restore a small stone bridge with your feet in the water! Come and join the association for the preservation of the Galny Bridge which gathers inhabitants engaged in the safeguard of their local heritage. This fording allows walkers and bikers to cross a stream. This small bridge belongs to two distinct municipalities, Carentoir and La Gacilly. For Carentoir, it will be the fifth international workcamp with Concordia but it’s only our first partnership with the Council of La Gacilly. Two international workcamps will take place this summer in this site, in July and August.
The workcamp site is about 4 kilometers away from the accommodation. You will walk or use bicycles to reach it. You will have to bring warm clothes (trousers, sweater; socks, closed shoes, rain clothes) and light ones (skirt or shorts, t-shirt, open shoes) because weather can change very suddenly in Brittany. You can literally experience all four seasons in one day! Please also take with you working clothes, gloves and shoes in addition to your best swimsuit. Bring rubbers boots or some sort of shoes that allows you to work in the water! Bring a warm sleeping bag and an insulated camping mat as nights are sometimes fresh and wet. 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.
Meeting point: Redon train station. Closest airport: Rennes or Paris.
