  • Description

    Description

    My wife and I are settling up a retreat on the outskirts of saint savinien France 17350.
    Progressively we are clearing and rebuilding boundary walls and the land
    We need general help in rebuilding walls and clearing woodland areas to create woodland walks and quiet clearances without too much disturbance to the deer and red squirrels etc we regularly see. We are trying to establish a healthy, green, eco environment for our our therapy based retreat.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We hope to provide a base for local exploration whilst we have active french neighbours and friends. I believe that we can offer an insight to working and living in France.
    Hopefully we will be increasing the environmental diversity

    Although we are physically fit at over 60 we need help with some of the physical work that beats us. Whilst we are trying to be ahead of nature in creating green hedges through sadly neglected woods.
    We grow limited food and want to increase our ability to grow more and be able to provide a more healthy and home grown diet etc.
