The THF is short on beamers, micros, cables of any sort, headphones, extension cords and multiplugs, so if you have any of those, please bring them with you. If you want to help Calafou grow, you can also have a look at our wishlist.

Even if you have already registered online, when arriving to Calafou go to the Infopoint (entrance social center) and register. There you will get to all the info you need, purchase your food tickets, check nodes logistics, inscribe yourself for turns (cooking, cleaning, maintenance and fairy for nodes: translation, documentation, logistics).


You can buy food tickets at the infopoint. We consider two possibilities :
> For people with low income: 70€ per week OR 15 per day if you stay 1, 2, 3 or 4 days maximum.
> For people with stable income: 140€ per week OR 25 per day if you stay 1, 2, 3 or 4 days maximum.
Those fees include breakfast, lunch, dinner and expenses such as water and electricity.
You can arrive by train or from the airport, all details can be find here
Note if you come by car, there has been very strong raining last days and it has ruined the way to calafou, so be extra cautious when coming down with car.

Even if we will assume the biggest part of kitchen preparation (buying, making menus, organizing space to cook and eat) we will ask you to contribute by taking over some kitchen, cleaning and serving responsibilities (at least Two turns in the hole week).We will make some appropriate tables to organize among us (infopoint).

All meals will be vegetarian and will include a vegan option. When not at lunch and dinner hours, other goods will be available in the social center.

At least a mat and a sleeping bag and bring a tent if you can (as some people have already arrived, mattresses are largely occupied now and there are few places left in the dormitories). There is also the possibility to lodge in a small family pension located at one kilometer from calafou (single room 15euros/night and double room 25euros/night). If you prefer this option please email spideralex at riseup net (hurry because there are few rooms still available).

We ask you please not to bring them. Calafou has dogs and cats and don’t want more, not even as temporary guests.
It is already difficult to find a balance between them and the chicken and geese and the wild life that surrounds us. It will be a problem and will create lots of debate. We hope you understand and find a place for them to stay before coming to Calafou.
