The project

In 2022, the municipality began to develop the Grole pond by creating a user-friendly area. This year, it plans to continue clearing brush the around the recreation area. Work on clearing brush and laying out will be necessary to make the area around the pond accessible again. Vegetable waste will be removed with a dumpster, emptied daily. Your work will allow the municipality to think about the landscaping in order to make the place as aesthetic, safe and eco-friendly as possible. Then you will remove the vegetal on the other part of the pond in order to allow a regular maintenance in the future. You will work 4 to 5 hours a day. An employee of the municipal services will come to follow the progress. Local volunteers will come to meet you and lend a hand.

Skills such as listening, respect, tolerance and open-mindedness will be necessary for group living and will promote a good relationship with the volunteers and the inhabitants of the city. Places for minors are reserved for French volunteers.
