On site logistics

To Do

  • Dig shit pits (Really? I remember someone saying that there are dry toilets on site)
  • Set up a fireplace.
  • Talk to local businesses about sharing their trash.
  • Find big cooking pots and gear, bring onsite.
  • Put up direction signs from the motorway exit.
  • Check with our hosts whether we can buy some of the food they produce. Otherwise check with surrounding producers (just go to the local market and ask around the stalls).

To have

  • Shovels (borrow from farm?)
  • At least 2 big cooking pot(s) at least (borrow from farm?)
  • Rope
  • A couple of rolls big plastic bags (not the massive ones, 30-50L is easier to carry out).
  • Bunch of soap-bars for toilets
  • Empty plastic bottles (esp. the big ones)
  • First aid kit
  • Paper, pens, markers, tape, (black)boards
  • Food in all sorts. Basic stuff like salt, oil, spices,



The website


It's a presentation site that is meant to explain the concept to the newcomer and an online window to the outer world. It's secondary purpose is to store the stuff from previous gatherings.

Needs graphics. Join the mailing list to help.

It's got Piwik and SEO plugin. Anyone feels like optimizing?

Any chance we can have it in French too? -- Sitarane (talk) 23:35, 26 May 2015 (CEST)
