Continuing the work done by previous workcamps, you will learn traditional masonry techniques to restore the walls surrounding the castle grounds. Using natural materials (soil and lime), you will restore the joints, reinforce the head of the wall and put the finish coat. You will also be involved in the development of our permaculture garden. In addition to the general garden maintenance, you will take part in the construction of a half-buried greenhouse which will allow us to improve our vegetable production.
You will sleep in tents and use the exterior bathroom and dry toilets. Food is provided and you will take turns in preparing the meals in the fully equipped kitchen on site.
Location: 03130 Montcombroux-les-Mines (Allier), 45 km from Vichy.
Leisure activities: During this workcamp you will have the chance to meet young people from France and all over the world. You will discover a rural way of life here in the castle grounds. You will also have the possibility to visit the nearest cities (Moulins and Vichy), or to go swimming at the local lake or swimming pool.
Are you curious about sharing an experience of living and working together with young people of different cultures? Do you enjoy the outdoors and rural life? What are you waiting for? Le Créneau, an organization for non-formal education awaits you on its castle grounds at the Château des Prureaux, here in the middle of the French countryside! You will share the work and daily life with people that came from all over the world and from various social backgrounds to offer their time and energy, be it for a week, a month or a year – because together we can go further!
