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!

You will live in a house built 100% by volunteers (wooden construction and straw bales), the water is naturally pumped on site, the shower is solar (outdoor tent), for food I always have a base (rice , pasta, potatoes, oil etc.) but you have to plan something to supplement it a little if you wish otherwise if you don't mind I collect fruit and vegetables every week thrown by a supermarket.
