*** VERSION EN FRANCAIS DISPONIBLE EN FIN DE DESCRIPTION *** *** French version at the end of the description *** Take part in a project to renovate the surrounding wall of the collective vegetable garden in the park of the Château de la Jonchère, using traditional masonry techniques, in Saint-Cyr-en-Val, a small town between nature and city, located in the south of the Metropolis of Orleans, in the Loire Valley. The Jonchère Castle and its outbuildings, owned by the commune, have now a music school, a library, exhibition and meeting rooms. It also has a shared vegetable garden in its grounds. You will take part in the renovation of the surrounding wall of the park: after having cleared the Virginia creeper growing on the wall, your work will consist in removing the concrete of the stone facade and then highlighting it according to traditional building techniques, staking, lime repointing, replacement of defective stones. During the workcamp, you will have the opportunity to meet the volunteer gardeners and wine-growers amateurs who take care of vines growing near the wall. This workcamp is part of a project of three workcamps organized by the Metropolis of Orléans with its member municipalities (Orléans, Saint-Cyr-en-Val, Saint-Jean de Braye) and the CRIJ Centre-Val de Loire (regional information center for youths) to help people discover the Loire region and its heritage and cultural wealth. You will have the opportunity to meet and exchange with the volunteers of the Saint-Jean-de-Braye and Orléans workcamps during the welcome drink, the intercultural day and the itinerant inauguration of the work carried out on the three workcamps.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

You will be accommodated in separate male/female dormitories in the multi-activity room of the commune. Camp beds and blankets will be provided. Remember to bring your sleeping bag. Each dormitory has sanitary facilities with showers and separate male/female toilets. A common room with a fully equipped kitchen will be at your disposal for meals. With the budget allocated to the leaders’ team, you will participate to the grocery shopping and the preparation of meals, giving priority to healthy and local products. You can bring your own recipes to share with the group.

Locatie en vrije tijd

At the crossroads of the Loire Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage site and the wild Sologne, the town of Saint-Cyr-en-Val stretches along the Loire hillside, in a wooded and agricultural environment. It is home to several castles, including the Morchêne estate, a municipal property, and the Jonchère castle. The town has a large network of bicycle paths and trails to discover the surrounding area such as the park of Morchêne and its collection of irises, the park of La Motte, or the river sides of the Dhuy.


The workcamp will take place in an urban environment, near a wood. For practical and ecological reasons, travel between the place of accommodation and the site will be on foot and by bicycle. It is therefore essential to know how to ride a bicycle. Remember to bring gloves, clothing and shoes suitable for outdoor work. Don't forget to bring a sleeping bag, summer and rain clothes, a swimsuit and toiletries. You should also bring your own healthcare protection equipment: masks and hydroalcoholic gel. You can bring board games, a musical instrument or any other object you wish to share with the group. Foreigners belonging to the European Union must bring with them a personal EHIC (European Health Insurance Card), and everybody must, in any case, bring their insurance certificate. If health issues happen on the project, volunteers will have to pay for it, and will then be reimbursed once back in their home country. *** RETROUVEZ NOS DESCRIPTIFS EN FRANCAIS ICI: *** *** French version here: ***
