Along with a technical leader, you will be able to restore the joints on the left side of the “Fontaine de la Grenouille” according to traditional and ancient techniques and to clean the plants that have started to grow on the side of the fountain. In the case of a good progress of the work you will also have to intervene on the right side.
You will sleep in two-person tents (bring your own sleeping mat) and the group activities and meals will take place in a municipal 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 and you will participate in the preparation of dishes with good products from the market and local producers.
