    Description

    We have always welcomed, hosted and helped people in need. Whether it would be for traveling, 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 traveling in our 8m² horse drawn caravan. We also have a second wagon for hosting holidaymakers or helpers.

    Zorba, the great percheron horse is our first family member. Abeille (Bee) was our second pulling horse. In 2019, Victor, another percheron horse has replaced Abeille.
    We have two young dogs Nasba ans Oscar and a cat (Ray).

    We are looking for people to help us set up our summer camp for 2024.

    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 an outdoor kitchen, shower and dry toilets.

    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.

    Florian was a gamebrarian (ludothécaire) and was working on an itinerant (I like wandering ludothèque lol) ludothèque.

    I, Mickaël, used to manage the technical services for a small town. I like photography, cooking, gardening.
