About the local hosting organizationThe town of Fert? Alais has a pedagogical farm which is open all year long to the local population. The town would like to create with recycled materials some more outside furniture in order to host in a more comfortable way the people coming to visit the farm. The town also would like to include the local population in the building of this furniture and to create around this a local event. It has had several experiences in hosting international workcamps in the past and they would like to invite some international volunteers this summer in order to build this furniture and to organize this local event.
About the volunteer workAs a volunteer in this camp, you will first work with other volunteers in order to discover how to build outside furniture with recycled material, like wood palettes. Once you have discovered these techniques, you will build with local people some furniture for the pedagogical farm. In order to promote your work, you will also organize a local animation event.
Local accommodationYou will sleep in tents in the former town campsite which is now used by our association. Please bring a sleeping bag with you. The campsite has bathrooms and showers, as well as a kitchen place. Food will be provided and cooked by the volunteers in turns.
