At the border of Lot & Garonne region, Lamothe-Landerron village (Gironde) is located less than 10km from La Reole, main village of the canton. To preserve its seven centuries old heritage, the town asked Concordia to participate to the renovation of its wash-house. The practical part put aside, the most important goal of this workcamp is to forge lasting bonds between international volunteers and local inhabitants, that’s why friendly meetings will be organized throughout the project.

You will start the reconstruction of one of the wash-house’s wall. First you will have to manually dismantle the wall. This first part is essential to ensure the wall’s stability. As for the reconstruction, you will use stones coated with lime according to traditional masonry techniques. There will be a second international workcamp next year to finish the wash- house renovation.

You will be accommodated under tents in the city stadium with all facilities (bathrooms, kitchen…) at your disposal. You will share the various collective tasks and prepare meals as a group.
