The work camp has as its primary purpose the recovery of a huge stone wall in a vineyard area and also a shepherd's stone hut. Participants are also going to work in a Spanish Civil War trench area, in order to make them more accessible to visitors. To do this, participants will have the support of experts from CESUB, Subirats historical study group, and they will be provided with all the material needed. The experts will contextualise the work they do, the history of the area and the role played by dry stone and vineyard. This will be the principal work, but they will take part on some naturalistic and environmental works like nest boxes making or path cleaning. Work areas are close to accommodation area and participants will be taken there by bus.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

The participants of the work camp will be installed in “ZER Montcau”, the school of Ordal, and they are going to use a school multifunctional area. They will sleep indoors and mattresses will be provided. Participants will eat outdoors and a catering service will serve the food; vegetarian and vegan options and as many menu adaptation as needed, are available.

Locatie en vrije tijd

The privileged geographical situation, a plain protected by mountains by the sea, the mild climate of the Mediterranean coast and a permeable land, rich in phosphorus, make the region of El Penedès the main producer of wines and cavas in Catalonia. This wine history goes back to at least the 4th century B.C. The vineyard structures are thus a distinctive cultural feature of the area, and they have been refined over time. The Subirats area, halfway between the Vilafranca plain and the Ordal mountains, has sleeper terrain than the rest of the region. That is why, in this area, the structure of dry stone walls and constructions, which are necessary for levelling the ground and plotting the vineyards, is quite important. Dry stone works were declared Cultural Patrimony of UNESCO due to its historical importance and patrimonial value. Free time and leisure activities will include group games, workshops and cultural activities in order to learn more about Catalan culture and the vineyard tradition in the area. Participants will visit cultural and historical areas and museum in Subirats, a wine and champagne factory and also Vilafranca del Penedès, the Catalan's wine capital. They will also visit the city of Barcelona, which is only 45km from the accommodation area.
