  • Description


    We are an artistic-creative-gardening space where two friends, Serge-André and Joëlle, live with a cat (Adélaïde) and 4 hens. We have very interesting varied projects, we love meeting people and there is often an appropriate place for anyone with basic skills, an open mind and a friendly attitude. We are located in Saint-Cyrille-de-Lessard.

    Nous habitons un espace artistique, créatif de jardins et de bonheur. Joëlle et Serge-André, deux amis à la fin de la trentaine. Nous habitons avec notre chatte AdélaÏde et nous avons aussi 4 poules. Nous adorons rencontrer des gens et avoir de la visite. En cette période, il reste peu à faire dehors mais si vous avez les habiletés nécessaires pour construire la chambre froide du sous-sol (menuiserie) faites-nous signe. Si vous n'avez pas ces habiletés mais que vous croyez que les personnalités seraient un assemblage parfait et que vous rêvez de connaître un endroit comme le nôtre, tentez votre chance!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We garden in an organic way, we are artists (musican-piano, and poet). We speak French, English, Spanish and a bit of Portugese. We live in a beautiful spot very close to nature (there is a huge forest right behind the house, waterfalls). We pick wildplants and mushrooms.

  • Help


    Tasks here vary between preparing garden space, sowing, planting, weeding, harvesting, mowing, preparing paths in the woods, help preparing an artistic event , handywork on the house and buildings. Help with daily tasks (cooking at home only- not for guests, cleaning) is also very appreciated.

    In this time of year, not much is left to do outside. However, if you are very handy and can build the cold-room in the basement that would be great. And if you don't think you can do that but consider that the personality match would be just perfect and you want to meet us, just give a try!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Beautiful nature (forest, waterfalls, amazing views and sunsets). The St-Laurence River is 10km away. There is a friendly microbrewery nearby where we can bring you. No public transport but we can pick up at Highway 20 at a rideshare stop. We can bike around here. (we have 3 bikes).

    Serge-André has electro-hypersensitivity syndrome and chemical allergies also. We do not have WIFI but have cabled internet. We ask that wireless gadgets be off or airplane mode. Perfumes, soaps, deodorants may be a problem. We can provide our odorless products.
