Construction site with sea view! Our conservatory of fig trees was installed on the slopes of a magnificent hill in the heart of the Maures massif.

We invite you to participate in its enhancement by restoring dry stone walls, weeding and brush cutting.

The orchard covers an area of 4,000 m² and has around 800 linear meters of dry stone walls, forming eighteen cultivation terraces. For conservation purposes, a collection of 138 fig trees has been planted in partnership with the National Botanical Conservatory of Porquerolles.

The work will focus on the dry stone walls of the terraces which have suffered over time and on the general improvement of the paths and the planting of fig trees. Collective tasks will alternate with individual or small group activities. Everyone will take turns in restoring the dry stone walls, a technique you will be introduced to, cleaning the walls covered by vegetation (mainly sarsaparilla) and maintaining the fig trees themselves.

The site takes place on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday with departure for the site at 8 a.m., picnic on site at noon and return in the evening around 4:30 p.m. Wednesdays and weekends are spent resting and exploring the heritage of La Garde-Freinet and surrounding villages like Saint-Tropez. We can also go for a walk in the hills of the Maure massif or enjoy the benefits of the beach.

Volunteers are invited to help the cook and the other members of the association prepare the meals. A service board will be set up at the start of the stay, so that everyone participates in daily tasks.
