Join the residents in their commitment to preserve the historical heritage of their municipality!
This fruitful partnership, which has been going on for several years now, allows two objectives to be achieved. On the one hand, the workcamps support the safeguarding of an ancient historical heritage. On the other hand they create a link between international volunteers and the residents.
As in previous years, you will participate in the restoration of the Priory's surrounding walls using traditional lime-laying techniques. You will consolidate the damaged parts and rebuild the destroyed parts. Part of the work will take place on platforms (low scaffolding).
Accommodatie en maaltijden
You will be accommodated in the old cloister which remains to be restored, with the possibility of sleeping in tents. You will have the chance to experience collective lifestyle, work together on different tasks, for example preparing the meals. With the budget assigned to the group, the participants will buy healthy, local products.
Locatie en vrije tijd
Moirax is located in Lot-et-Garonne, in the south-east of the New-Aquitaine region. Close to the Garonne and on the outskirts of the city of Agen, you will be both close to the municipality and immersed in a rural setting. Moirax has one of the most beautiful areas of the villages of the Agen agglomeration, both in terms of natural landscapes and built heritage.
The Pyrenees Mountains are in the region bordering the Lot and if you wish, you can go and discover them. In the same way, you can organise together refreshing canoeing trips along the Garonne River.
Bring a sleeping bag, working clothes, sports shoes, warm and rain gear, a torch, a bathing suit and sun cream. Don't hesitate to bring your musical instruments, recipes, games or specialties from your country so that everyone can discover them.
Citizens of the European Union must bring their EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) and all participants, without exception must bring their insurance certificate. In case of medical care participants have to pay the cost but will be reimbursed once back in their home country.
