I'm Hilde, living in Biches, Burgundy region, central France. Together with my son Robin, we started a small scale permaculture project. I did a 72H permaculture course with Steve Read. Currently we are renovating the house (using natural and recycled materials as much as possible ) and developing a garden. Robin is setting up his mushroom farm.
I am a 42 years old face and bodypainter living in the charming village of Feluy. I live one week on my own, one week with my children aged 8 and 7. My daughter has school in English 2 days/week.
I live in an old house in the center of the village.
I work at home doing costumes, props and prosthetics for a new project in street performance. I have no workshop in the house, so it is often quite messy here ;-)
The kids have 2 lovely rats.
Feluy is 40 km south from Brussels (it takes a 25 min bus to Nivelles and then a 30 min train to get to the capital.) It is a old village with a medieval castle and an old canal, with some ramblers and cyclists on weekends. There isn't pretty much to visit, but the countryside around is beautiful. There is a bus stop near the house. I can give a ride to Nivelles station when needed.
I live in a new house in Yeovil very close to shops and cinema and gym etc and there is a park right behind the house. The house is clean and bright and tidy and I like it to be like that... I don't like a lot of mess so I ask if you come that you keep your room, kitchen and bathroom tidy.
Most workawayers who come and stay with me say that my English is quite easy to understand because I don't have an accent and I've had a lot of years experience having students and workawayers stay with me to help with their English.
I like to be around people who are happy funny and optimistic and I prefer it if people come to stay for minimum time of one month really.
From Friday evening in till Monday morning I'm not at the house so you will be there by yourselves.
We are trying to revive the degenerated Domaine surrounding our Château, which nowadays consists of an animal farm with 25ha of hilly pastures, a 45ha forest, a saw-mill and some holiday homes. When we (Bianca, who was trained to be a nurse, and Paul, who had been stuck in an office for far too long) were in our mid 40's, we decided to get away from it all. So it was in 2005 that we left our studying sons behind and emigrated from the overpopulated Netherlands to the tranquility of rural south-west of France. We have embraced some of the local Gascon lifestyle, in which we like to enjoy a full table, both food and company, after a hard day’s work. In spite of all the progress made, the domain never seems finished. So YES, we do welcome volunteers to help out on the farm, with the forestry and to generally fix-up this quiet Gascony glory!
