We propose to work on the embellishment of a shopping street in the heart of the old medieval town of Marvejols. You will be required to repaint the street furniture in a pedestrian street. This is a very useful job for the inhabitants and shopkeepers of this beautiful town where life is good and where tourists and visitors like to stroll in the summer. Local festivals are organised on site during your stay where you can meet the locals. You can also take part in the activities planned with the leisure centre.

Accomodation and food: You will stay at the the municipal field. You will sleep in individual tents (bring your own sleeping bag and sleeping mat) and live together in a municipal room provided for the group equipped with toilets and showers. French volunteers will be able to share their internet connection through a hotspot or use the WIFI available. Laundry will be done by hand. You will share the various collective tasks and prepare meals together. A budget will be allocated to the leaders and you will participate in the shopping and the preparation of the meals, promoting healthy and local products.


Location and Leisure: Marvejols is a small town of 5000 inhabitants located in the Lozere department. You will be totally seduced by the magnificent landscapes that the site and the small medieval streets of the city offer. You will be able to take advantage of the leisure and outdoor activities.
