We have always welcomed, hosted and helped people in need. Whether it would be for travelling, touring or seeking shelter for homeless people, we try to be there when possible.
This time, we though we might continue and ask for a little help.
Since July 2018, we have been living on the road and travelling in our 8m² horse drawn caravan. We also have a second wagon for hosting holdiayers or helpers.
Zorba, the great percheron horse is our first family member. Abeille (Bee) is our second pulling horse.
We have two young dogs Nasba ans Oscar.
We are looking for people to help signal the convoy at crossing, open the gates, help unloading the horses, care for the horses, feed them, groom them at the high season only.
If you wish to, we are setting up a small circus show, a child story telling, we welcome schools and elderly people along the way, we organize sharing circle (group talks around various subjects such as permaculture, alternative ways of producing energy, eating, educating our children, making home made product, cooking etc). You are welcome to help with the visit, even give explanations if you feel so inclined.
We can arrange to host for a first week and then see whether we have more work for the second. You should apply for a one week period.
We have life projects of getting as close as possible to mother nature, on an ecological aspect as well as looking after ourselves and others.
We are children of the earth, we are from the Rainbow family!
Amongst other things, we would like to build a strawbales house, a used to have a mobile ludhotèque (gamebrary), a permaculture garden etc.
We try to only eat organic products (vegetables, dairy) from local producers.
We are vegetarians.
So far, we have been making our own washing products and pretty much cooking everything from scratch.
