Frankrijk | Restauratie en natuur
Samen met 14 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 21 dagen naar een restauratie en natuurproject.
Het project duurt van 3 t/m 24 augustus.
Continuing last year's work, you will take part in the restoration of the farm frontage. Two leaders will supervise the work and introduce you to traditional techniques: masonry works, using lime mortar, repairing joints…
You will be staying in a collective accommodation under tents in a field, the toilets and bathroom will be in a building. The meals will be taken in the building. The group will be sharing the cleaning chores and preparing meals together. You will buy most of your supplies directly from local and organic producer.
60km south of Cherbourg and 20 Km north of Saint-Lo. For more information about the park: www.parc-cotentin-bessin.fr
Beginner or advanced: you are interested in ecology, in sustainable development, organic farming? Come to discover or rediscover environmentally responsible tools and practices. By participating in this workcamp you have the possibility to experiment, to live for 3 weeks following eco-friendly principles. You will have the opportunity to renovate a former manor in masonry with natural materials, to meet market gardeners and to support them in their activities, to cook with local and organic products, to bake bread, to build an earthenware oven, to make yourself your cleaning products for the workcamp … You will find out a responsible consumption by giving priority to local products. You will discover a very beautiful environment: hedgerows, marshes, seaside, heaths…It is the 5th time that Concordia organises an international workcamp with the Cotentin and the Bessin Marshland Regional Nature Park. Located in the south of the Cotentin’s peninsula, this wide surface of marshland polders hosts a unique fauna and flora. The Park’s House proposes touristic information, exhibitions and animation in the aim of discovering natural and architectural heritage. Around this place, you will have the opportunity to hike, sail boats, discover the local and environmental heritage and enjoy animations. This workcamp is a part of a long-term project. This is an old farm built with homemade mud bricks, owned by the Manche region. This place is now used for the trainings organised by the Regional Nature Park about homemade mud bricks building.
The workcamp is focused on ecology, historical heritage and nature. We wish to host volunteers interested in eco-friendly practices or wishing to discover eco-friendly consumption. You may work on small scaffoldings; you should therefore be able to work at heights. Please bring gardening gloves, good shoes and working clothes. As the nights can be quite cold, remember also to bring warm clothes. Don’t forget to bring a sleeping-mat, a warm sleeping bag (and a tent if you own one!). 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: Carentan train station. Closest airport: Paris.
