Starting from the Theatre de Verdure, the access path is regularly maintained by the municipal services. Your mission will mainly be to consolidate the existing steps and retaining walls. You will probably also have to create new steps. The trail is quite narrow, so you will work in small groups on different sections of the trail. You will be supervised by a municipal agent, a craftsman and local volunteers who will be happy to share with you their know-how and the history of this place. The site is a 15/20 minutes walk from your accommodation. You will walk to the work site and work 4 to 5 hours a day.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
Located outside the village center, you will be accommodated in tents at the municipal football stadium. On site, you will have toilets, shower and an fully furnished kitchen. Meals will be prepared by the volunteers and you will be required to take part in daily tasks (cooking, washing up, cleaning). Accommodation is located 10/15 minutes by foot from the village center and the shops.
Locatie en vrije tijd
Located in Drome Provencale, La Batie Rolland is a village of 1,945 inhabitants. You can stroll through the cobbled alleys of the old center and discover this village and its rich history. You can go to Montelimar by bus and discover its lively and colorful center. You will also be offered activities by local associations (hiking, initiation to petanque, visiting neighboring villages).
This project will allow you to acquire technical and human skills. The repair of the steps and retaining walls will introduce you to masonry techniques: making and laying mortar, handling specific tools, choosing and organizing stones, making a stone wall. During this project, you will develop adaptability, versatility and solidarity specific to teamwork. These capacities will be reinforced during group life where listening, respect, tolerance and open-mindedness will be necessary.
