Are you a nature and biodiversity lover? This workcamp is made for you!
This workcamp is the result of a partnership between the Concordia and Echologia associations, located in Louverne. Echologia is a real oasis of nature and promotes strong ecological values. With more than 70 hectares of land, it has an exceptional eco-tourist site at the gates of Laval, the capital of the Mayenne region (in western France).
For this first year of partnership, you will be based at the foot of an old lime furnace. You will continue the construction of a part of the low walls: staking of the mortar, repointing with lime mortar (masonry technique used for old buildings). These walls will become a filtering waterfall for aquaponics. In a few words, aquaponics is the fusion of 2 techniques, aquaculture and hydroponics, which allows plants and aquatic animals to live together in perfect harmony in a closed system. This system works as a virtuous circle, ecological and healthy to produce vegetables, flowers and fruits. You will learn more on site!

You will sleep in individual tents (bring your own sleeping bag and sleeping mat), and will be directly connected with nature. The kitchen and the living space will be set up in a room near the camp.The dry toilets and showers are close to the camp. Volunteers will be able to share their internet connection or use the wifi available at certain locations on the worksite. Laundry will be done by hand. You will share the different collective tasks and prepare the meals together. A budget will be allocated to the leaders, you will participate in the shopping and the preparation of meals, by privileging healthy and local products, and you can exchange your recipes if you wish. You will also be able to eat organic and seasonal fruits and vegetables, produced directly by Echologia and their aquaponics system.

Please note that this site receives weddings on weekends. Therefore, some parts of the site will be privatised for these events. You will not have access to the showers on Saturday to Sunday’s morning. However, water points are still available. Apart from that, the park is very vast so you will not be disturbed by the noise.

Echologia is located in Louverne, a small village of about 5,000 inhabitants at the gates of Laval, in Mayenne (1h30 from Paris by train and 10min from Laval by car).
This site is an opportunity to take full advantage of the exceptional setting in the heart of nature. You will have access to educational workshops involving the thematics of water, animals, the environment, but also aquaponics, Echologia's main activity!
You will have access to different activities on site: swimming, archery, hiking, etc. Moreover, the site is located a few kilometres away from a leisure centre, accessible on foot, where you can swim!
Please note that the swimming pool and archery will not be accessible on weekends during weddings.

Echologia is built on the site of former lime quarries, closed in 1963. Abandoned for 50 years, nature took over and transformed it into an exceptional site full of unexpected treasures.
This site is now entirely rehabilitated thanks to the work of a team of enthusiasts. Based on a co-construction approach, each tourist who passes by can contribute to the building by participating, at his or her own level, to the expansion of the site. For many years, Echologia has been organising workshops or mini-building sites with different schools or social structures. Thanks to this partnership between Echologia and Concordia, it is the first time that the site will welcome a group of international youth for a workcamp.

Echologia's approach is proactive and cohesive with their strong ecological values. The development of the site is respectful of the environment and heritage in the principle of sustainable development. It is also the first aquaponics training centre in France.

For work on the construction site, remember to wear closed shoes that you don’t mind being used. Don't forget to bring warm clothes for the cold and rain and a good, warm sleeping bag: the nights can be chilly in Mayenne. Don't hesitate to bring home specialties, photos, games, musical instruments, etc.

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.
