Frankrijk | Natuur en restauratie
Samen met 11 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 21 dagen naar een natuur en restauratieproject.
Het project duurt van 11 juli t/m 1 augustus.
You will work on tasks such as pre-archaeology (clear the stones and vegetation), and to maintain the hiking paths that bring to the site. You will be accompanied by a passionate technical leader and you will have the opportunity to discover the history of the Hamlet and how to preserve it.
You will sleep in tents on the local football field in Saint Gégoire, with access to an outdoor kitchen and a sanitary block.
Location : Saint Gégoire, 20km east of Albi and 80km north-east of Toulouse Leisure activities : During you free time you will have the opportunity to discover not only the natural environment by accessible walk trails in the surrounding forest, but also the architectural and cultural heritage of the region. You will be able to visit the surrounding cities such as Albi. During the hottest afternoons you you will have the opportunity to relax by the stream next to the work-site or discover local activities such as « pétanque ». And, you will also cooperate with the locals to organise events (cultural and social), therefore, multiplying the opportunities of local encounters.
In the midst of a forest, coils a small stream down a steep valley that stretches from the Segala plateau to the Tarn river. A discreet but most prominent ensemble of medieval ruins is set there. On the top of a hill, a thirteenth century dungeon is encircled by the ruins of excavated houses. A hundred and twenty feet further down, a water mill, a bread oven and a barn surround a bridge that crosses the stream. The buildings composing this hamlet have, since the end of the medieval ages, slowly fallen down to an amazing ensemble of ruins. It offers fascinating grounds of social and historical study for archaeologists. You will work alongside local volunteers and the association « La Bastide des Vassals ». Your tasks will be to participate in excavating the buildings next to the dungeon and the reopening of the walking paths around the site. Come and join in to a marvellous adventure and participate in saving the local heritage.
