Saint-Genis-De-Saintonge is a community in the southwest of France. It is situated in the heart of the charentaise countryside, within the proximity of the “Lalande” forest, and not far from the estuary of the Gironde. This community is an historical partner of the association with whom we had begun the first workcamps on the territory of Charente-Maritime, in 1996. After a dozen years of implementing workcamps on the territory, the community wants to rediscover the intercultural dynamic stimulated by the workcamps, and especially to rearrange and embellish the magnificent and lovely forest of Saint-Genis. For this reason, the community would like to create a more secure and comfortable road, but also to create a walking trail to attract the population and the tourists.
