Create a radio podcast and discover a 2000 years old archaeological site, near the beautiful Loire Region and its nature! The workcamp will focus on the creation of an audio trail allowing walkers and visitors to discover the various natural and environmental attractions of the archaeological site of Cherre. The archaeological site of Cherre is particularly renowned for its built heritage as it is classified as an Historic Monument. It is also a natural site that has been classified since 1975, and is much less known for its environmental value and biodiversity. Under the supervision of a team from Concordia, the Departmental Council and a journalist from Radio Prevert (local radio station), you will be in charge of creating audio podcasts to allow walkers and visitors to discover the archaeological site in an original way: recording sounds of nature, collecting testimonies from people who know the site well (farmer, naturalist, hiker, etc.), creating a story, etc. Various possibilities for creating an audio trail will be proposed. These audio podcasts will then be made available for download by QR code on the department's website. French/English version possible. In addition to this project, you will also be asked to testify about your journey and to promote the workcamp project through radio broadcasts with Radio Prevert. You will also take part in the setting up of activities and actions to create links with the inhabitants of the commune: holding a stand at the market on Saturday mornings, organising an international meal, proposing service exchanges, etc. We have been organising workcamps on the Cherre archaeological site since 2013, in partnership with the Sarthe Departmental Council (owner of the site) and the municipality of Aubigne-Racan. Each year, a workcamp is organised in July to restore the site (masonry work). In 2022, the agriculture and environment office of the departmental council is writing a management plan for the site, and is working in partnership with various local partners to preserve and enhance this sensitive natural area.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

You will stay in tents (2 to 3 volunteers per tent) in a field with access to toilets and bathrooms in a local football club building. Meals will be taken there as well. The group will share the cleaning tasks and prepare meals together. The budget will be allocated to the group leader and you will participate in the preparation of meals with good products from the market and local producers.

Locatie en vrije tijd

Aubigne-Racan is located 40km south from Le Mans, 15 km west from the Chateau du Loir. You will have the opportunity to meet local people and exchange services. For more information, have a look at: https://www.vallee-du-loir.com/offres/site-archeologique-daubigne-racan-aubigne-racan-fr-585177/ and http://www.aubigne-racan.com/ You will take part in the local festivities in July such as the July 14th parade and fireworks, see the light show in the old city called “Nuit des Chimeres”, discover the local heritage and may even go hiking.


Aubigne-Racan is a lovely city near the river Loire and it spreads over 3203 hectares with a total of 2112 inhabitants. A particularly important part of Aubigne heritage is the Gallo-Roman complex composed of a theatre, a temple, thermal facilities and markets built in the second half of the 1st century. This archaeological site, owned by the Sarthe department, is one of the most beautiful sites of the Pays de la Loire region. This area is very rich in architectural heritage and natural discoveries. We are working on this project with the Sarthe Departmental Council's agriculture and environment office, which is responsible for managing the biodiversity of the archaeological site. The Aubigne-Racan site is a sensitive natural area. The creation of the podcasts will be accompanied and hosted by Radio Prevert, a local radio association that is very involved in the area.


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.


You will be cycling on a daily basis to go from the city to the workcamp (4km). Please bring gardening gloves, good shoes for work and working clothes. As nights can be quite cold, also remember to bring warm clothes. Do not forget to bring a sleeping-mat, a sleeping bag for cold weather (and a tent if you have your own!).
