The landscaping and creation of the fragrant and educational gardens around St Pons Church have not started yet. Also, the main objective of the site will be to facilitate access to the site by clearing and disbursing stones to allow a safe passage. Depending on the progress of the work, other tasks may be proposed to the group as well.
You will be housed in tents on the communal campsite or in a school. Bring your floor mat or inflatable mattress and your sleeping bag. You will share the different collective tasks and prepare the meals together. The budget will be managed by your camp leaders and you will participate in the shopping and the preparation of the meals, by privileging local and seasonal products.
Collobrières is a small village of 1900 inhabitants in the heart of the Massif of Maures and located on a hill near the beaches of the French Riviera. Its ideal location will allow you to enjoy beautiful walks in the mountains, to visit the chestnut or the geological museum, to swim in the communal pool or in the sea while as well enjoying the festivities of the village!
Participate in the promotion of the historical heritage of Collobrières, “capital of the chestnut” in the heart of Provence. The town hired an architect to enhance the exterior of the St Pons’ Church and to turn it into a fragrance and educational garden. The project will consist in supporting the municipality and local associations in the implementation of this project.
Please bring: working gloves and shoes, casual clothing, hat/cap, sunglasses, sun cream, mosquitos repellant, swimming suit.
