    Description

    La Maison de Paille was built only by volunteers and woofers over the years! Today all the work consists of setting up an edible forest, a fruit dryer, a pumping windmill, etc. Do not hesitate to come and participate in the small steps towards a viable AND enviable future !! Carpenter, I spent several years in different projects as a volunteer in Eastern Europe and I love the atmosphere! I am working on transitioning towards permaculture and setting up a food forest. I'm also building a big solar food dehydrator, a houseboat and a troglodyte house. You can come when you whant for the time you whant there is always something to do here! Come and spend a moment in a straw house surrounded by nature and participate in the birth of an edible forest, the discovery of wild plants and especially the establishment of an autonomous house!

    I suggest welcoming you to volunteer as much as you want, there is no obligation to work but there is always a way to help a minimum. There will be to take care of the fruit trees planted this year, to participate in the progress of the construction of an autonomous house.

    Je propose de vous accueillir pour participer bénévolement autant que vous voulez, il n'y a pas d'obligation de travail mais il y a toujours moyen d'aider un minimum. Il y aura à s'occuper des arbres fruitiers plantés cette année, à participer à l'avancée de la construction d'une maison autonome.
