Free food, and accommodation in the beautiful French Alps in exchange for your work casting hempcrete in a new build Alpine chalet.
Summer’s (nearly) here… and the hempcrete season has begun! We’re posting this for some clients of ours who are self-building a timber frame and hempcrete chalet near Chamonix in the French Alps. They are looking for enthusiastic volunteers – preferably with some previous experience of building or practical skills, and an interest in sustainable construction – to help with the hempcrete installation.
Start date: 13th June 2016 with people needed until mid/late July 2016. Minimum commitment 1 week, this can be extended by mutual agreement once on site.
if you have a particular skill in carpentry, you could start earlier (around 7th June) to help construct the shuttering.
In exchange for your labour during the hempcrete casting phase, the clients will provide:
- a chance to learn more about, and get hands on experience with, hempcrete
- free (shared) accommodation
- some time off to enjoy the beautiful surroundings
- free (communal) veggie meals
All you have to do is get yourself to the alps. Contact the clients for more information on the best transport connections.
