Started 2 years ago. The place used to be a parc of 4ha with 200 year old oak trees, bamboo, 2 orchards, 36 walnut trees, old buildings, even an icecellar and a well. A permaculture garden has been started up. It's in the countryside but the nearest village is only 3 km away. The plan is to make the place as selfsustaining as possible. Help needed in the garden and/or renovating and clean out the existing building.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
You will be in the middle of nature (and France). I love working with recovered and free materials and use it in the building. Off-grid techniques. I'm still learning myself, but happy to share and experiment.
Everything has to be done :) Help to clean up/renovate the buildings, the fields. Starting the permaculture garden... Even help to make plans what we can do with the place. For now it's pretty much a blank sheet.

You can stay in the main house at groundlevel. It's not renovated yet, but the bedroom is clean and private. There is a bed and some other furniture. In the place nextdoor there is couch and big table. There is also a gasburner to cook. Also a fireplace. Everthing is very basic, it's a work in progress.
The garden is big enough for tents (i can provide one with a matras to sleep). There is also an outdoor shower with hot water and composting toilet.
I live at the attic that is completely renovated. With bathroom and hot shower. And a big woodburner as heating. I'm happy to share the bathroom, if its to cold outside :)
I'm not a great cook, but i'm happy to provide food. Or we can cook together. Maybe i can learn something :-). In any case, I provide all necessary groceries. We can also go to the weekly market together.
I'm new to this. So no experiences. Looking forward to learn :)
