Attached to the richness of its heritage, the municipality of Moustiers-Sainte-Marie wishes for this first workcamp to involve a team of volunteers in its valorization. This summer s project will focus on the rearranging of the footpath leading to the Grotte de la Madeleine (Magdalene cave). Part of the town s religious heritage, the Grotte de la Madeleine has an old chapel that was once used as a place of worship and still today contains an altar and two statues representing Mary Magdalene and a wolf.
The hiking trail that leads to it begins in the heart of the village and winds through the old-fashioned restanques , allowing many visitors to enjoy this rural heritage that is so characteristic of the Provence landscape. With time, water and the unraveling of some restanques, the trail became more difficult to access. The various steps and levels have eroded due to transit and rain. You will also have the mission to clear, to devegetalize the trail, to redefine the route, to repair steps and to secure the site. To do this, you will be supervised by a wall craftsman, specialized in calades , and you will work 4 to 5 hours a day.
You will be accommodated on the municipal campsite in tents. You will be allowed to use the facilities: shared restrooms and arranged kitchen. You will participate in collective cooking and daily tasks. Your place is not far from the village.
This site will allow you to acquire skills in landscaping and small masonry: repairing of steps, creation of counter-steps and step nosing, devegetalization, tracing and signalling of a trail. You will be trained in the traditional dry stone construction technique, typical of the rural and pastoral world. Working as a team, both with the camp leaders and with other volunteers, you will develop your listening, your adaptability and versatility, rigor and tenacity. Those are skills you will also strengthen through group life.
