    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ We are also looking for someone to help us especially with childcare, meals/home and gardening in the spring. Please contact us if you love kids and are happy to join our little family for this time...

    We are a French-American family with two awesome kids, living in our eco-home that we built ourselves in the Dordogne countryside. Kevin is French, has had multiple professional lives (musician, carpenter/green builder, translator) and now Nonviolent Communication facilitator; Elizabeth is American and a psychologist and psychotherapist from California. We have a delightful 14 year old boy and 11 year old girl. We are very interested in sustainable living, permaculture, meditation, nonviolence and community. And you!

    We're loving living in our ecological home, hooray! After a break from hosting, we're again feeling really excited and open to hosting and meeting some lovely beings. We have a few projects to bring our home and life to the next stage: finishing an extension to the house (so some finishing carpentry), and a whole new permacultural approach to our land involving the creation of gardens, chickens, bees, dry stone walls, planting trees, terracing... to invite beauty and life around us. Our orientation is to make our land and life abundant and resilient while trying to enjoy every step of the process. So come and join us if you would love to work with the land! We also have some spots dedicated mostly to child care and helping around meals.

    We are home/unschooling since 2019. So we are very happy to host you if you would love to spend some time with our children and share your passions and talents with them and us! Our 14 year old boy is learning Spanish, guitar, woodworking and is passionate about technology, design and architecture, nature, sports and martial arts (he practices judo and wakeboarding)... Our 11 year old daughter is passionate about animals and nature, playing piano, creating her own monthly journal (periodical), writing stories and drawing and creating...

    Our upcoming projects as of fall/winte 2022-2023 are:
    - finishing the new extension of the house: kitchen cupboards, finishing a bedroom, etc... if you have experience in wood creation or renovations we'd love to have your help! :)
    - weeding, watering and tending the existing trees/gardens, making our land more and more a paradise!
    - building a zome

    We really invite people who love to share time with children.
    Always welcome: volunteers with gardening, land-work and building skills!
    Also amazing if you are a musician and can teach us some of your skills and passion!
    We would be delighted to share with you our interests for permaculture, meditation and nonviolence.

    Arbeit

    We are looking for help with developing our projects on our 1.2 hectare land (3 acres) where we have built our straw-bale house over the past few years, and we'd love to host folks who have interests and/or skills in caring for land and green building, and also people who love children. Kevin can teach you about traditional carpentry, straw-bale building, permaculture, etc. and French! Our schedule is: finishing a bedroom, setting up a self-retreat space in the forest, terraces and cabin, land work, etcetera... :)

    Also, Kevin is a certified Nonviolent Communication facilitator and would love some help to put together a blog or easily manageable website about communication, presence and relationship. Elizabeth needs help also with a website for her psychotherapy practice. So if you have such skills and don't mind mixing outdoor work with a bit of programming, we would be very excited to meet you!

    Sometimes we host folks primarily to help us with the kids, in that case we would hope you love kids and proposing activities to engage them, creative projects, walks, baking, games....

    We have a guest room in a little office cabin that can accommodate a single person or couple. It is quite cozy and away from the main house so has privacy. Folks could also camp in the forest on our land if they prefer the outdoors during warm months where we have a beautiful open-air cabin. In general we provide healthy vegetarian meals. We also have a lovely 3m bell tent.
