  • Beschreibung


    We are an eco village in Ariege living in community... 8 children and 15 adults (all ages and from different walks of life), 2 dogs, and chickens. Our main interest is freedom and democratic schooling based on sudbury schools, but also sustainability. How can we live in community while still being free ? This is our main challenge that unites us. Authentic and open communications is really what keeps us alive and thriving. We live on 50 hectares of land, where we try to grow our own food. We have planted around 200 trees since we've started the adventure 3 years ago. We also recently had a pond dug to attract wildlife and to go for dips in summer. We have a wood shed too with lots and lots of wood and tools for building and being creative! The view from the land is amazing, with the Pyrennees in the background. There is nice spot by the river on our land and nearby. We have lots of nice walks around one hour away, and a really cool local crafts and artisan market every Sunday.

    Where do we need help?
    Our main current need is with kids. Anyone keen to share games, or other creative projects with them would be very valuable. We are currently looking for a workaway from october to mid décember 2021 to take care and initiate creative plays with kids under 5 years old.

    Weeding, fencing, laying straw and compost, irrigation, season dependent (spring- sowing seeds and planting) summer and autumn - harvesting and making preserves - jams, tomato sauces...). If you feel creative, making wooden signs for the garden, we also have a project of making an enchanted circuit in the forest (creative people welcome!), creating a herb garden or mandala. Anyone with permaculture experience would be a great plus, but not essential. We would love to make our outdoor spaces beautiful too. We were thinking of making sculptures (wood, clay...), so if anyone feels drawn to this...!

    general maintenance of the place, indoors and outdoors, and pool cleaning (yes you will be welcome to use it, although not heated so really only useable in summer), there is a lot of momentum to transform the place inside too, making the decoration nicer in main areas, but also in the bathroom. So any people with interior design skills would be welcome!

    But most importantly the foundation is really someone who shares the same values around ideally democracy, community and ecology. We have welcomed many French volunteers but keen to open up our community life to international souls for a richer experience and more cultural diversity. Already in our collective most of us have different origins which nourishes us a lot but bringing people with different language is something else. Most of us speak either English and or Spanish. Looking forward to hearing from you!

    Accommodation will be in a shared rooms in the batisse (main house) in winter or outside in tent (high season). All food is organic (either from the garden or from the market). When we receive visitors in the busy season, there is a roster of volunteers (by this I also mean villagers!) to cook/clean/prepare beds and outside this roster, we invite volunteers to be self responsible. We would love people who can take initiative. Everything works organically here, sometimes we eat together, sometimes not, sometimes one cooks for some, sometimes one cooks for everyone, or just for himself. We invite the volunteers to be open to such flexibility (ie to take also initiative to cook for himself sometimes).

    So check out to see if there is something you would be interested in, and send me a message!

    Ps we welcome younger volunteers but only those responsible ones that can clean after themselves :-)
