Join our 'makers' village in the Bourgogne. We, my daughter (11 years old) and me (49), live on a farm. We have 19 hectares of land around the farm and several buildings. Our goal is to create a ´makers place´ in a rural area where everyone has his own space to work/ create but we share a barn atelier. For the moment it is just me and my daughter but we love to share our special place. The farm is located on a hill with beautiful views and next to a nature reservate. We are looking for a creative but most of all handy person who loves kids and animals to help us finish the house, renovate the other buildings, create artistic objects. We have 4 horses a dog and a cat. I work with my horses in freedom.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
I have 4 horses and work in freedom with them, i can teach you a new method to work with animals based on harmony and frendship rather than dominance. We can teach you French or Dutch. Learn what it is like to live on a farm in France. you can also use our barn if you like to work on your own project.
we are mostly looking for a handy person or an inventor. someone who likes to create lowtech or diy things or land art and someone who can help renovating and reparing stuff. I would like to start building a huge tire au lienne / slider. and a podium in the barn. furthermore there is a lot of work in the house to be done like painting, plumbing and creating a kitchen as I am building a tiny house and renovating my farm. cutting the hays around the fields /repaire the fences.
