GRADIGNAN – Renovation of the Verger house | CONCF-002 | 2018-06-25 - 2018-07-09 | RENO,ENVI | Age: 15 - 17


In the frame of a sustainable development program, the city of Gradignan is organizing this workcamp to associate locals and youth from the city with international volunteers on useful projects for the community. Gradignan is an important city with several green areas (20 parks in total) which has a strong will to develop a sustainable policy that everyone can be part of. With our partnership they are really interested in experiencing local participation to an international project. Several young locals will take part in the project.

Work: You will contribute to renovate the house of “Verger-Refuge” located in the middle of the city. That wooden house has suffered from floods and therefore needs to be repaired in order to welcome children in a natural and safe environment once again. To be more specific, you are going to have to restore the main hall by repainting the walls and preparing the floor for its new coating. Depending on your progress, you may have to do some various enhancement works around. This place is quite crowded and hosts a lot of events; there is no doubt you will benefit from Gradignan’s people support in your endeavour.

Accomodation and food: You will be staying on the “Clos du Vivier” leisure center. You will sleep under tents for 2 that will be provided. Please bring your sleeping bag. There will also be a collective tent for cooking and diverse activities. You will share collective tasks and prepare meals as a group. You will also have to manage a budget provided by the group facilitators and participate in grocery shopping, giving priority to healthy and local foods.
