    Beschreibung

    We moved to France after our world travels in 2016 with a vision to create a sustainable, education and demonstration site. Since then we had been renovating the house, redesigning and regenerating the land, and we are now able to follow our dream of leading a more balanced and connected lifestyle in the French countryside.

    Glen is originally from the UK and Karen from South Africa. We have made France our home and are working on setting up a Permaculture small scale farm and education centre.
    Karen in a certified Permaculture designer, educator and life coach, and Glen is an all round handyman with a keen interest in woodland management, forest gardens (perennial food forests) and aquaponics.

    We have dogs, chickens, turkeys, ducks, pigs, sheep and goats. We grow our own veggies in annual raised beds, and plan to move towards a more low energy input perennial food forest which we are setting up in 2020. We raise our pigs for meat and started a Community Pig club. Our sheep's wool is being used by the Crafting Guild, and we have meat from our pasture raised sheep. We believe passionately in good animal husbandry and in treating all our animals with respect. We also practise rotational grazing thereby improving out pasture land (we offer an eco-mowing services to the local community)

    We currently have two projects: we are creating an outdoor earthbag root cellar and are looking for volunteers interested in helping on this project. Secondly we are looking for anyone who is a qualified plumber or electrician to help with our kitchen renovation project.

    Please note: we have 4 dogs so only dog friendly people should apply. We ask for a minimum *commitment of 1 week.

  • Was noch ...

    Was noch ...

    We have bikes available to explore the local area. Lots of walks from the house. Unfortunately as we are quiet rural there is no public transport but we are only 5km from 2 nearest towns.
    Larger city such as Lorient 35km away, and many interesting and historic villages in the area.
    We are willing to pick up workaways from train stations within reasonable distance and offer lifts to shops or local attractions when we are able.
