We are a family of 3. Our duaghter will turn 9 soon and she is homeschooled.
Our Young and dynamic dog is part of the family, we also have frindly chickens ;)
Coming from Paris we now live in the beautifull countryside of Pays de Retz (between Nantes end seaside) in a Longere with a river at the bottom of the garden.
Nearly vegetarian,, we are experimenting to convert our garden in permaculture.
We are interested by ecologic issues and try to be close to zero waste.
In one world, we try to be more respectfull and close to Nature.
Looking for meeting people with values we can share and learn from each others and have fun.
What we would ask you would depend of your skills and the need of the moment but should be mainly day to day help for the garden or the house and language and culture exchange. Our main aim is to help our daughter to learn English and Spanish by native people. We want her to not only learn the language but also your culture.
Therefore, we would preferably like to host people that would match with her, (homeschooling family, families with children, Young travelers, people used to share with children....
