The insulation workcamp will take place at a building called « Auberg’in », which is set to become a place to welcome groups (includes dormitories, sanitary facilities and a large kitchen). For the comfort of those welcomed, we hope to improve the insulation of this stone house. With the help of a technical supervisor, we will work with techniques and materials of eco-construction (like hemp and lime, wood…) In effect, it will be about constructing a wooden framework on the exterieur facades of the building. This framework will hold the insulating materials, made from a mortar of lime and hemp straw. At one point, we will work at high levels with the help of scaffolding. The time spent at the worksite will be around 30h per week.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
Housing will be in individual tents, that we furnish and provide matresses for, on the campgrounds of the Ferme du Faï. The campgrounds have access to showers, restrooms, and the kitchen. There’s no WIFI, but you’ll be able to meet people from all over the world ! You’ll take turns cooking, that way we’ll be able to taste a number of different specialties ! Here, we pay attention to what we eat, and to reduce our impact on the planet, we try to eat a maximum of local products and limit eating meat to twice a week. Community life will be organised together : organization of menus, grocery shopping, activites, etc.
Locatie en vrije tijd
Location : The farm of Faï, 3km from the village of Saix, is 15km away from the main city, Veynes. Grocery shopping days, which will be conducted once or twice a week, will be organised using our vehicles.
Leisure activities : You will be in an exceptional location to discover the joys of hiking among the mountains, its rivers, its lakes, the farmers markets, and festive events organized in the surround villages (depending on programming). As a group, you’ll decide the activites and outings that you want to set up (subject to distance). Once a week, the welcome center generally organises an evening of music with homemade woodfired pizzas.
