  • The organization Base Nature Vercors, located on the mountain of the same name in the heart of a Regional Natural Park, has hosted for several years all kinds of projects, with one goal: to enable a wider audience to live in the wilderness. The site where the organization is established, named “La grange aux loups”, is meant to become an educational place about energy transition; since 2011, workcamp volunteers have contributed to this project. Indeed the last five years the association hosted groups of young volunteers for an eco-construction project and collective outdoors life, and wishes to repeat the experience this year. This is a French speaking workcamp : French will be the main language of the daily life, the work and the activities ; we expect the volunteers to have a least a basic level of French! More information :
  • During the stay you will have the mission to continue the work of the volunteers involved last year. This project of initiation to a common work will aim to finalize restoration of the collective kitchen: construction of an earth kiln, but also restore and ancestral cooker made in bricks to favor the use of renewable energies. You will also be required to carry out other activities to maintain and make the site live: maintenance of the kitchen garden, writing of the blog of the association, and various construction work, realization of a radio program, a concert, a theatre play. The theme of the site this year will be the "transition" to sensitize participants to a consumption of resources on the planet more mastered and relations between men more equitable. A project for nature lovers and creators of all kinds!
