  • Description

    Description

    We are a couple with 2 children living in the country, at 40 km away from Lyon, and not so far from the Alpes. I am working in a research institute in Lyon and my husband is working at home, doing naturalist surveys and launching a native plant and roses nursery. Since 2011, in our free time, we are renovating our mud (rammed earth) house.
    We are looking for people interested in ecological renovation and/or plant cultivation.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We will be very pleased to exchange with you about botanic, ecology, your country and ours. We are all motivated to talk in English, including our 6 years-old daughter. We can bring you to the Alpes for a walk during the weekend. You will also have the opportunity to spend time with our neighbors-friends: one of them is growing Spiruline, and would be happy to show you how it works.
