Weclcome to a 16 acres parc located within the northern areas of Marseille. Its a place with an incredible view : the sea, the small villages still there, the hills..
Its also the place where you can see the big Marseille, Hollywood style !

For three years we've been working on improving this place, with the inhabitants, to make it more enjoyable and available for people all around the parc. We met, discussed, walked and organized events to learn how to get to know each other and see what was this space all about. Many stories and great biodiversity developed there. One of the most interesting things is that this space is in the middle of the northern areas of Marseille which often have bad press in the medias. But what we learned working here is that its also a fascinating area with so many great stories and landscapes.

Our goal, in inviting help'x to join, is to share what are these areas like, with their deep hospitality, history, and local productions (tiles, honey, soap, textile..)
And make people meet and get to learn about each other.

This summer we are organising a 6 weeks programmation, open to everyone who wishes to organize something in Foresta. Cinema, music, sport, clown, workshops to build boxing ring or a traditional soil oven are many of the things you'll be able to enjoy and participate in. We invited all the associations around to do something together and use the parc as their playground and place to rest for the holidays.

About the tasks
Cooking, building, organising activities for the public,anything and everything to make this experience a great one for everyone.

About sleeping
A few months ago, 6 boats were brought to the parc. They are meant to welcome people to sleep in it. There is also a possibility to camp there of course. Whatever you prefer !

On the photos you can see events we did , the boats and the big letters Marseille and an exemple of a workshop we did, using the natural resources of the site, "la canne de provence" which is something a little like a bamboo. We managed to make a beautiful shade with this.
