    Beschreibung

    Welcome!

    Me (Beverley) and Charles are both English living in France. We bought this "summer camp" because we fell in love with the area and land and we have a lot of projects for this place.

    Our project is based on Regenerative Agriculture, permaculture and sustainability. The core criteria for everything we are designing is "accessible for all" where possible. We will be as self-sustainable as possible. What has changed since we started is that we are now looking to have as many different ways of sustainable living as possible and hoping to be able to showcase these on the land.

    Here we have 4 donkeys, 5 sheep, few Indian runner ducks, small goats, 3 Kayuga ducks and a lot of chickens and new ones are arriving every now and then, plus 1 dog and 5 lovely cats.

    We have built a cob house for the chickens which was great fun and hard work. We made the donkey shelter out of pallets. It also has a solar electric fence, water harvesting and plastic bottle insulated walls where possible. We also have a walipini and a lot of permaculture beds.

    It's a really exciting project and one that is flexible so we can adapt for new ideas as we go if we wish to tweak or find new ideas.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
    These are interesting projects that all interwork so everyone will get an opportunity to have a try at everything

    The Walipini vegetable garden is effectively a underground greenhouse and which has raised beds.

    Help
    The land is 2.5 hectares near the Lot river close to Puy L'eveque which is about 1.5 hours north of Toulouse, SW France.


    The everyday life is :

    - Taking care of the animals (feeding, watering, cleaning when needed, collecting the eggs)

    - Planting, weeding, watering, collecting vegetables…


    Some of our projects are:

    - Water harvesting. Monitoring and improving
    - Soil testing
    - Changing soil to enable planting of truffle oaks in top agroforestry
    - Planting up new species in lower agroforestry
    - Growing « superfood » plants in the underground vegetable garden
    - Rotational grazing and monitoring and logging observations for success
    - Making a silvopasture with the donkeys
    - Breeding chickens for coloured eggs



    · Accommodation
    We have 3 bedrooms with their own bathroom for volunteers.

    There is plenty of land if anyone prefers to camp. There will always be a vegetarian option and, if requested, a vegan option. There will be one day off a week for me from cooking.

    What else ...
    The local town is called Puy L'eveque. It is beautiful. Right on the river Lot. The river is about a 10 minute walk from the house and is huge. Boating, fishing, canoeing etc can be done. The town is about 1.3km so easy to bike in.


    Don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions !

    The Wallipini vegetable garden is effectively a underground greenhouse and has raised beds so it will be easy to manage

    The whole project is very inspiring and is an opportunity to build or maintain unusual projects from planning to the finished product.

    We will have a couple of bikes and if possible I will get another couple by then. We have a dog and several cats at present but no doubt this will have expanded by next year. We have 5 sheep and miniature goats. And lots of chickens and ducks to help maintain the vegetable plot.
