  • Description


    We are easy going persons, who love new experiences and meeting people. We traveled for a while as "workawayer" which allowed us to discover new cultures and ways of life. After 5 years spent in North America, and several trips around the world, our feet led us to Brittany where we bought an old farm. Through our travels, we have learned a little more about the ecological way of life we wish to adopt in our daily lives. This includes permaculture, eco-building, sustainability, self-sufficiency and community living.

  • Help


    We need help with both building renovation and gardening. We moved in only 3 months ago, and we have lots of ideas to make this place alive and inspiring. We are looking for help for different projects, from renovating the huge shed that we want to turn into a workshop and concert hall, to the old stone building that was once used to raise pigs. There is also plenty of gardening for those with a green thumb!

    We confirm that we 'll provide all three meals to the volunters as part of the exchange.
