You will take part in this enhancement project and intervene on an old canal going along the Ibie river. This canal s route is difficult to determine today because sediments and vegetation partially covered its remnants. Therefore, first of all, you will carry out the dredging of sediment layers on a part of the canal and its devegetation. Then you will help restore a dry stone retaining wall, which threatens to cover the canal as it collapses. You will be supervised by a wall craftsman and municipal agents. You will work 4 to 5 hours a day, in the morning, together with local young people, which will bring many opportunities for exchange You will walk to your workplace for 10 to 20 minutes.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

You will be accommodated in tents on a dedicated field and will be able to use the sanitary facilities and the kitchen of the Maison de l Enfance (Childhood House) located not far. You will be involved in the preparation of meals and household tasks. You will be located in the heart of Villeneuve de Berg and able to visit the nearby shops.

Locatie en vrije tijd

Villeneuve de Berg, a former royal bastide, was created at the end of the 13th century. Strongly affected by the religious wars in the 16th century, the town was an important refuge for Protestants. You will then be able to stroll along the streets of the old village that bear witness to its history. Close to the old royal bastide, you can also visit the Sens national forest where an educational trail (2.5km) will allow you to discover the fauna and flora of the surroundings through panels inviting your five senses. The municipality also hosts a museum of popular arts and traditions in the Pays de Berg, allowing you to understand the traditions and daily life of the past: silkworms, wine-making, local economy... Finally, the local youth will show you their county: visit in the surrounding villages, bathing in the Ardeche river, sports.


During this workcamp, you will first learn the techniques of landscaping maintenance and how to make a canal flow again: use pruning tools, recognize invasive plants and those that need to be protected, dredging. Then, the technical guide will introduce you to the dry stone construction technique, typical of the rural world. Working as a team, both with the technical leaders and with other volunteers, you will develop your listening to the others and to the instructions, your adaptability and versatility, rigor and tenacity. Those are skills you will also strengthen through group life.
