A reconstitution of all the stages needed to turn earth into pink sand. This method, that has disappeared since the beginning of the 20th century, allowed the peasants who built and looked after mountain chalets to extract sand from the soil on the spot to make their cement, avoiding all the difficulties of bringing up building materials from the valley.
