You will restore a thatch roof according to traditional techniques. The intervention will mainly consist in removing the actual thatch and replacing it with a new one. You may also work on other projects around the ploughman house site.
You will sleep in two-person tents (please bring your sleeping mat) in a park, near a pond, next to the town hall, a ten minutes walk away from the workcamp. The group activities and meals will take place in a room made available to the group. The group will be sharing the cleaning chores and preparing meals together. The budget will be allocated to the group leader, shopping will be done with him/her and you will participate in the preparation of dishes with products from the market and local producers (if possible).

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 as well as your best swimsuit. 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 will then be reimbursed once back in their home country.
