    ENGLISH
    Welcome !!!

    First of all, two words here describe everything we're doing : CARE and PROTECTION of our planet....

    A house, 3000 m2 of garden, including a vegetable garden, 5km from the atlantic ocean, in the hugest european pine wood forest.
    Jean, me and 2 cats are living here.
    Food : I use to cook mostly vegetarian meals.

    We are mostly interested by sustainable living, inner living - spirituality -, how to create a new world no more depending on fossile energies, how to create less garbages and leave a cleaner and beautifull world to our descendants....

    HELP NEEDED :

    1- We need strong people who do not hesitate to do all kinds of tasks: for exemple : mowing lawns, trimming hedges, tinkering, , making concrete or building dry toilets. .. People who know gardening and who have manual skills .. ..
    ESPECIALLY: people who are not afraid to work without bothering at least 4 hours a day.
    Jean needs someone to help him quite all the time because his hands make him suffer a lot.

    2-According to our budget, we can host only one person at a time ; sorry for couples !

    3-You can stay one week first and more if we feel good together.

    Best regards ! :-)

    Bienvenue !!!!

    Tout d'abord, deux mots ici décrivent tout ce que nous faisons : Soin et protection de notre environnement et par extension, de notre planète ....

    Une maison, 3000 m2 de jardin, dont un potager, à 5 km de l'océan Atlantique, dans la plus grande forêt européenne.
    Nous y vivons à cinq : Jean, moi et 2 chats.
    Repas : je cuisine essentiellement végétarien.

    Nous sommes surtout intéressés par la vie "durable", la vie intérieure - spiritualité -, comment créer un nouveau monde dépendant moins des énergies fossiles, comment créer moins de déchets et laisser un monde plus propre et beau à nos descendants ....

    AIDE DEMANDEE :

    1- Nous avons besoin de personnes fortes qui ne craignent pas d'accomplir toute sorte de tâches : ex : tondre la pelouse, tailler des haies, bricoler ,faire du béton ou construire des toilettes sèches... Des gens qui connaissent le jardinage et qui ont des compétences manuelles .. ..
    SURTOUT: des personnes qui ne craignent pas de travailler sans rechigner au moins 4 heures par jour.
    Jean a besoin de quelqu'un pour le seconder dans ses travaux ( voir exemples ci-dessus ) car ses mains le font beaucoup souffrir.

    2-Notre budget ne nous permet pas d'accueillir plus d'une seule personne à la fois; désolé pour les couples !

    3-Vous pouvez rester une semaine minimum, plus si nous nous entendons bien !

    Bien à vous ! :-)
