Werk

Do you want to learn ancient masonry techniques and to register your action in accordance with the objective 12 of sustainable development (UN) in favor of sustainable consumption and production? How to use ancient and ecological materials? This session will consist of restoring the retaining walls of the slope in the main street of the old village. For this, it will be necessary to start with a work of cleaning of the vegetation then of the resumption of the low walls in dry stone. In the extension of these low walls, three small stone steps will also be resumed to facilitate access to the path. In parallel to this work, there is a mission of an archaeologist in the making to be carried out: the classification of elements found during the various work sites undertaken. This mission requires precaution and rigor because each element must be sorted, photographed, and recorded by computer. The work will be supervised by a professional in dry-stone masonry. A day's work is expected to last 6 hours, and the organization of the days will be discussed and decided on by the group of participants. This workcamp is a good opportunity to discover a traditional construction technique whose only required materials are stones cleared from fields intended for agriculture, or those that are recovered from former buildings.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

You will be accommodated in individual tents at the campsite "Les Catoyes", about ten kilometers from the workcamp (the trips between the camp and the workcamp will be done by mini-bus). A team of leaders will be present to help you organize the collective life during the two weeks of the workcamp: planning of household tasks, elaboration of menus (vegetarian, vegan and other specific diets possible) and preparation of meals in turn, organization of leisure activities and outings. The purchase of local products will be largely privileged. Everyone will come with their own ideas, talents and skills for the preparation of the meals. Bring a mattress, a good comforter (nights can be chilly) and a pillow (to be adapted to your needs).

Locatie en vrije tijd

Etoile Saint Cyrice is located in the South of France, between the Alps and Haute Provence (40km from Sisteron). It is close to the village Orpierre, a hot-spot for rock climbing that has many shops and that also organizes festivities during the summer period. The land of sunshine and amazing flavors, the provençale Baronnies massif is a good living personification where we can enjoy outdoor activities in the heart of nature while also just lounging around ! Rich in natural heritage with agriculture adapted to the Mediterranean climate within the mountains, the provençale Baronnies are known for their aromatic and medicinal plants : wild thyme, rosemary, lavender. In close proximity to Etoile Saint Cyrice, we’ll be able to discover numerous sites : the Sisteron citadel, the priory of Saint André de Rosans, Saint-Genis mountain...Orpierre is also an amazing site for rock climbing and the provençale Baronnies are full of varied hiking trails and spots where we can enjoy the surrounding rivers.
