All the materials will be accessible to those as young as 5 years old. You will participate in a "calade" workshop, working to creative a decorative paved work made of small pebbles of different shapes and colors around the giant barbecue in the shape of a compass rose. First, you'll be familiarized with the available space, then you will sort and arrange the pebbles according to shape and colours, in order to draw a global pattern that fits the theme of a compass rose. You will also build an insect hotel which will then be installed in Citrus’ permaculture garden. All these tasks will be broken up by maintaining the summer vegetables in the garden and the chickens. You will be accompanied by technical leaders and work in a team five mornings per week. Schedules will be adapted according to the weather conditions.
