Your tasks will consist with different creation periods: building a bread oven, creating a plastic waste sculpture with a plastic artist, building seed libraries and insect hotels in order to encourage local biodiversity and finally participating to the festival.
You’ll be sleeping in tents at the municipal campsite of Amiens, near the park of the Grand Marais.
Lots of activities will be planned: visit of the Baie de Somme, of the historical centre of Amiens and its monuments as well as “les Bords de Somme”, along the Somme River. Between “Les Hortillonages”, exceptional natural area in the heart of the city and the huge cathedral, great bike rides will be organised.
The North of Amiens is lucky to be benefitting from areas of community gardens on its territory. The Community Garden Association of La Plaine de Debussy gathers almost 200 gardeners who cultivate their parcels of land every year. The main goal of this action is to introduce this area to a great number of people and to highlight it through pedagogical activities. As part of the festival “Un Jardin en Nord”, the Youth Activity Centre of the neighbourhood wishes to set up a workcamp on the community gardens area. It is the first work camp in this municipality, you will be awaited with great eagerness and a lot of meetings with the local inhabitants will be set. You’ll be participating at the music festival “Un Jardin en Nord.”
Please bring sporty shoes and working clothes. As the nights can be quite cold, remember also to bring warm clothes and a sleeping bag. You can also bring recipes from your home country, musical instruments and games.
