ENGLISH: In the heart of the Fosse Maussoin park in Clichy-Sous-Bois, a nature animation project was born to promote the involvement of residents around shared gardens and a neighborhood garden centre. The lively activities aim to raise awareness among visitors on different topics such as environment, local distribution channel, healthy and sustainable food, and to discover the flora and fauna in the heart of the city. This ambitious urban agriculture project and initiator of social transformation will host for the first time two international workcamps. The volunteers will help develop and maintain the site (2300 m²) and create links with the inhabitants of the surrounding districts. All of this on a territory marked by history and multicultural diversity!
ENG : Your mission will be to help develop the communal gardens which will be open to residents and associative actors. You will help build fences, prepare the soil, prepare planters ... You will be accompanied by a technical facilitator who will share the right techniques to set up a garden. You will also help set up an educational garden. This special garden will host permaculture experiments and organic market gardening. Many people will work by your sides and will support you in the project (nature leaders and facilitators, associations specialised in urban agriculture, Civic Service volunteers, researchers, etc.).
ENG: You will be accommodated in an establishment (to be confirmed) where you will have access to showers, toilets, kitchen. The facilitators and volunteers will pay particular attention to food so that it is as local and responsible as possible. All aspects of the collective life (shopping, meal preparation, cleaning) will be managed by the volunteers themselves, based on an operation that you will have decided upon together beforehand (e.g., use of schedules, constitution of pairs...). You will be assisted in this task by a group facilitator. You will cook in turns for all the participants. It will be an opportunity to show your culinary skills (bring some recipies!)! The aim is for each one of you to be an actor/actress of your stay, while respecting others and community life.
ENG : EXTRA FEES: reduced to 250€ for international volunteers. Pay attention! Our national participants in France pay the regular 360€ of extra fees. International volunteers coming from our partners in other countries than France pay only 250€ of extra fees.

Globally on our teenage camps, we chose to book half of the spots for French volunteers. The aim is to allow a maximum of young people to access intercultural learning, to promote volunteer's commitment as a first step and then experience international workcamp abroad.
