: Inside a lovely little French village, the castle of Montaigu le Blin is an impressive medieval fortress, classified as a Historical Monument. It is located on the top of a hill, overlooking the countryside. Since the 80s, volunteers come every year to restore and protect the castle. In the last few years, volunteers have restored the masonry of the Chambers of Lords and developed the medieval vegetable garden at the bottom of the Lord's tower. This year, it's your turn to live an experience back in time!
EN : Participate to the protection and enhancement of this breathtaking heritage! Within the castle, you will realize various works of restoration of walls (ramparts, towers) using traditional techniques and help maintain the vegetation (clearing bushes, etc.) as well as many other varied tasks. Beyond this work, you will reflect together on sustainable development using traditional techniques in the restoration of the fortress, but also in the daily life of the group. Campleaders will guide you along the project. You will also take part in the touristic activities of the site by welcoming the visitors (tourists and local inhabitants) in the castle and explain the work,show the progress you have been doing the last few weeks! Protecting this piece of heritage takes time, and a lot of energy. Come contribute to its rebuilding! Your workcamp will welcome our post-workcamp training weekend. Our campleaders from this summer's workcamps will gather for a post training evaluation by your sides. This is a key moment of our organisation! You will be able to get some help to continue the great work you will have started, share nice evenings and discussions by the campfire!
EN : Accommodation is under tents (1 person per tent) at the town stadium lent by the Town Hall. Tents will be provided. You will have to bring other camping gear (ground sheet, sleeping bag, etc.). You, volunteer, are actor/actress of your project! You will manage the tasks of daily life in teams (shopping, cooking, and cleaning). A rotation will be organised by the campleaders to ensure the smooth running of daily life. The objective is to gain autonomy and that everyone acts individually to allow a good collective functioning! Altogether, you will think about how to work, feed everyone, have fun, get around, visit the region in the most environmentally and human-friendly way.A building on the field includes a kitchen room, 2 showers and 2 toilets for the group.
