    It was our dream to live in the wild and create a permaculture and yoga center. We are now doing it an hour from Nice in the foothills of the French Alps. We are looking forward to combine both yoga, permaculture and whatever the universe decides to brings us.

    So you would be summerged by yoga people and avid gardeners.

    Living on the property are Ann Cecile Michael and our three kids of 10, 8 and 4 years old (she loves drawing, i hope you do too).
    We have chickens, ducks, Ginea hens, Peacocks, Bees, wild cats, and all the animal kingdom found in a biodiversity environment..
    We are in the process of expending our permaculture garden and food forest.

    We have 4 volunteers opportunity at this time. There is not one task, but many. You can all help together, alternate tasks, or even switch from task to task. We will manage all on site as a function of your desire and wanting to learn.

    We have you stay in lotus belle tents on our property, with matresse sheet and all the confort you need. If you type lotus airbud 3 meters. showers are inside

    We are vegetarians.

    Check our Instagram page for lot's of pictures.
    Please ask for our instagram account name, and we will be glad to share.

    This year we are building 3 wooden kit chalets to host workaways and guests.
    We are also creating 2 geodesic domes. One to extend the house. The other to host workshops.
    Creation of an outside shower spot with 4 shower.
    Restauration of an old irrigation canal.
    Gardening, and taking care of the food forest.
    Creation of a new garden, and food forest
    Cleaning up terrasse of shrubs in order to plant trees. (restanque)
    Harvesting is a big job but also food conservation for the winter.

    We ask for 1 month minimum stay in july and august otherwise 2 weeks. That is what we have learned work the best.
    On the property beside the 3 volunteers we also have 1 interns that stay for the season. They will help alongside you and be your point of connection with all the tasks at hand.

    We are looking forward to sharing our place and dream with any volunteers willing to come and have a great adventure.
    See you soon.
