Mr. Frédéric OLIVE – SG2A L’Hacienda
May, 2012 – Project of intervention of the UDAF of Vaucluse on the district of the Orel Barn at Avignon:
At the request of the prefecture of Vaucluse, an intervention basing on the concepts of urban regeneration and gift against gift is envisaged around four important axes: (1) the economic, (2) the housing, (3) the domestic production and (4) the education.
♦ The economic = The creation of a cooperative around the functioning of a baker’s oven:
– The mother as founding element of an activity within the community by the administration of the baker’s oven.
– The creation of a cooperative economic system developing the solidarity and the economic dynamics (small restoration on the spot, breakfasts on workplaces, preservation of a link between the inside and the outside of the district).
– A place of convergence of the residents: the mothers who work, the young people who consume, the parents or the grandparents which gets back the children after the snack.
♦The housing = The investment of young people (couple with or childless, single-parent families or recomposed), artists… within the district by the help to the entry in the housing. In return, these people give of their time for voluntary actions.
♦The domestic production = The implementation of family gardens by using mainly the skills of the fathers. These family gardens present at least five advantages: (1) pleasure to garden and to consume its own products, (2) economic reasons, (3) meetings, relations, (4) healthy diet and of season, (5) gifts to the family.
♦The education = A center of excellence made up of a micro-high school and artists’ house, a meeting place between the education and the culture, which bases on four axes: (1) maximal adaptability at the request of the young person, (2) global approach of the young person focused on the person, (3) appropriation of the structure by the young person, (4) educational team adapted and opened on the outside world.
♦ Finally, it is intended to create a mini-golf within the district on a not building ground. It will bring an economic activity because its access is not free. Furthermore, if this mini-golf is for the standards of the French Federation of the Minigolf, it will benefit from the sports domain, condition sine qua none for a success of the project, that is the organization of the competitions under the aegis of the Federation, the creation of a club so allowing to make live the mini-golf, the creation of an animation within the district.
