You will also be chopping trees that are at risk of falling into the stream, or that don’t fit into the surroundings. Finally, you’ll have to relocate a small chapel. To do this, you will prepare the supporting structures and reassemble the chapel at the intersection of a path to insure its better visibility.
You will be accommodated in tents, with access to sanitary facilities and a kitchen. In turns you will take part in the preparation of meals and the organization of your daily life (scheduling, cleaning, shopping, etc.). We will encourage you to purchase local and seasonal products.

Consider taking clothes and shoes for work (also rainproof in case of rain). Since you will be staying in tents bring a warm sleeping bag and a good mattress. Nights are sometimes cool and humid. If you want, you can bring your own tent. And remember to take a bathing suit as well in case we might go swimming. Don’t hesitate to bring specialties from home such as photos, games, musical instruments, etc.
