    Description

    Eric, artisan blacksmith, and president of the local festival association, implement an eco-tourist project in his village and its surrounding.
    This project is about hikes around the village of Dauphin, and hills around, to rediscover the mining heritage. These ancient mines were recently reopened, providing many materials such as gypsum, lime, coal, clay…
    This project is a way to show how the peasants were living, the traditional ovens they used for cooking materials. It’s also an occasion to learn about the plants they were using through the botanical trails leading through the mines.
    A small premises has been furnished in Dauphin to be a platform to spread information linked to the project. (Information sheets…)
    We are able to receive workawayers until end of september.


    Eric Chopin est un artisan ferronnier qui est president de l'association "DAuphin en fête" . Il cherche à dynamiser l'activité culturelle et touristique de son village(Dauphin 04300). Un projet de promenades en collines (dans le luberon),sur des thèmes variés permet de visiter des mines à Gypse, chaux ,charbon etc.....de découvrir la flore, et la géologie locale.
    Des fours pour la cuisson du minerais de fer, de l'argile, de la chaux, du cade, du pain etc.. sont installé sur un terrain proche du départ et de l'arrivée des ballades.
    Pour donner corps à ce projet un petit local commercial à l'entrée du village de Dauphin est mis à disposition des gens de passage pour trouver les information sur ce théme.
    Nous recherchons des personnes parlant bien le français, pour faire une permanence dans ce local et donner les renseignements qui concernent ce projet

    Nous pouvons vous recevoir jusqu'a la fin de septembre.
