The town of Joeuf is located in a former industrial area north of Meurthe-et-Moselle. It is a small town bordered by the pretty river Orne. The town of Joeuf has a major project to redevelop the banks of the river Orne and the St Anne plains. The banks are part of the greenway "Le Fil Bleu de l'Orne" (The Blue Thread of the Orne). A clean path of 23 kms follows the river from Rombas to Moineville which delights walkers and cyclists. These last couple of years, the workcamps consisted in rearranging the banks: setting up barbecues, a pretty wooden log bench around a tree, an insect hotel and plant braiding. On the other hand, the town of Joeuf has recently set up a children's playground at the St Anne plain. The town would like to link the banks of the Orne and St Anne's plain by creating a picnic and rest area halfway. This new area will enable the inhabitants of Joeuf and users of the "Fil Bleu" coming from the surrounding villages and abroad to meet using the various cycling routes of the region.
Come help us create a beautiful and friendly space for relaxation and rest and to promote biodiversity! This year's workcamp activities will include the construction of wood-pallet furniture such as tables, benches and perhaps even deckchairs! There will also be some vegetation clearing and one or two insect hotels may also be created. These 2 weeks will be an opportunity to create links with the inhabitants, especially the young people, 6 or 7 of whom will work with you on the construction site every morning. In summer in Lorraine it is often very hot, so the work will probably start quite early each morning (between 8 and 9 am) and this for the whole day, interspersed with a lunch break. Late afternoons, evenings and 2 full days a week will be devoted to rest or various activities and games at the camp, as well as possible visits in the vicinity or in the region.
You will be accommodated in a sports hall equipped with mattresses. The toilets, showers and kitchen are nearby. Please take a sleeping bag with you. All aspects of community life (shopping, meal preparation, cleaning) will be managed by volunteers, based on a system that you will have decided upon together (e.g. use of planning, formation of pairs, etc.). You will be assisted in this task by a group leader. The aim: that each volunteer is an actor/actress of his or her stay in the respect of others and community life.

Joeuf is located 30 minutes from Metz, known for its Gothic cathedral, its medieval quarter and its famous summer cultural activities. Come take advantage of the contacts with local organisations and actors, very active in this project: you will discover many heritage and historical sites such as the site of Verdun (First World War), the mines of Neufchef (the region has a strong mining and steel industrial past) or the city of Metz. You will also be able to walk in a green setting, learn how to fish and practice many outdoor and sports activities such as basketball or the traditional pétanque!
There is a possibility of wifi access in the premises. Unfortunately the accommodation and work sites are not wheelchair accessible. You will be working with local youth every morning.
