Several interventions are planned during the two worksite sessions:
– Creation of stone steps
– Repairing a stone wall
– Earthworks for leveling the path
– Creating fascines
You will be housed in tents on the sports complex of Meyrargues. 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, using mostly seasonal and local products.
Meyrargues is a small and very dynamic Provencal village of 3750 inhabitants, offering a wide range of cultural, heritage and environmental discoveries. You will take part in the festivities of the village, hike in the massif of Sainte Victoire, swim in the lake of Peyrolles and you will be able to visit cities like Aix en Provence or Marseille.
Participate in the touristic promotion of the town of Meyrargues, picturesque Provencal village with its castle listed as historical heritage. The town is located north of Aix en Provence, part of the great site of Sainte Victoire painted by Cezanne. You will discover cities and landscapes of Provence with intoxicating scents, rocked by the song of the cicadas …
The project involves installing a pathway between the village and the castle to facilitate the access for residents and tourists who come to visit the town.
Please bring working gloves and shoes, casual clothing, hat/cap, sunglasses, sun cream, mosquitos repellant and a swimming suit.
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.
