The Old Train Station Creux-des-Biches (Le Noirmont JU)
Description: The socio-cultural Centre Ancienne Gare du Creux-des-Biches is run by a non profit foundation. We provide a Oasis for learning, peace and finding one's own task in life for people of all ages. We have a guest house for seminars, 4 horses, chicken, ducks and cats, and a large permacultural garden. Two to four staff work at the place together with volunteers from all over the world as well as with a network of neighbours.
Type of Work: Renovation work inside the old station house which is now the living space for the community, for friends and visitors. Tasks include: painting, wood work, isolating, making the space pretty. Work in the permaculture garden area including chickens’, ducks’ and horses’ area. The gardening/outside work will be done even despite a rainy weather, so be prepared for harsher conditions.
Study Theme: You will have a presentation of around 2 hours about the centre (a guided visit of the whole place included). We will talk about the history and the aims of our centre: the philosophy of the project, culture, permaculture, the way we work with our horses, our time-out offers for children and adults, etc.
Accommodation: You'll share a room with 2-3 other volunteers. Beds with sheets will be provided but you can also bring your own sleeping bag. You will have 2 toilets & 2 showers only for the volunteer group. You'll have also your own kitchen, where you'll cook with products, provided by the project partner. Food will be mainly vegetarian. There is limited internet connection.
Language: The workcamp language is English, while the local language is French.
