Your workcamp aims to restore several sections of the dry stone wall that allows you to travel from the village of Rosans to the water which takes the old route of the mule track of Nyons. With the support of a technical supervisor, you will discover the traditional techniques of constructing a dry stone wall. The residents of the village will be also be there to support you during your work.
You will reside in camping tents near Rosans. A lively staff will be there to help you in participating in the community (cleaning, dishes, the organizations of outings, etc.), but also with the preparation of meals using local products.
Location: Rosans (23 km from Serres, 57 km from Sisteron).
Leisure activities: Land of light, scents and flavors, the Baronnies Provençales is a territory where the sweetness of life is married to the practice of outdoor sports and leisure! Rich in natural and agricultural heritage adapted to the Mediterranean climate under the influence of the Alps, the Baronnies Provençales are strongly marked by the aromatic and medicinal plants: they are part of their identity. All you need is a walk on the paths, where at every bend, there is wild thyme, rosemary or fields of lavender. You will also discover a geological curiosity: “dinosaur eggs”; they may resemble large eggs, but in reality, they are balls of sandstone. Imbedded in the vast sandstone banks in the middle of thyme and heather, some are nearly 2 meters in diameter creating a lunar spectacle.
Join us in the Regional Natural Park of Baronnies Provençales at the doors of the Drôme Provençale. Rosans offers preserved nature of a little village of the Hautes-Alpes with all the ingredients of the south! The landscapes of Rosans vary with the changing seasons and bloomings. The arid lands are favorable for aromatics alternating with the colors of broom, thyme, lavender or rosemary, the woods, and the little hills of blue marl that blend marvelously with the warm colors of this sun-drenched land. Open your eyes to these landscapes dominated by blue skies and breathe deeply, the air here is as pure as the sky! The organization of this youth project will contribute to an interesting dynamic for the valley, with meetings and local events such as festivities or cultural evenings, shared international meals, and visits to the site by the elected representatives and/or inhabitants.
