  • Description


    We are a couple of stone builders living in a collective house rebuilt by us. We have 2ha (2000m2 of permaculture garden), a green house, dry toilet, a clay house we built.
    Our project is to share live, and experience together.
    We use collective intelligence in our daily lives, this as well as music, and an ecological way of living are very important for us.
    We are dynamic, open, mindful and we like to meet people.

    We can teach people about eco-construction, stone-construction, french, collective intelligence tools, and vipassana meditation. We connect with associations and there are many festivals around here the whole summer.

    People can help in the permaculture garden (harvest and preparing new plant beds), in the eco construction project (stone stairs, wooden stairs, natural pool...), by giving lesson of guitar, cooking, cleaning, computer maintenance,...
    Our big project this summer was the 'Brogliotte', a house we built out of clay with the help and ideas of many people. The roof, the floor and the chimney are not as yet finished and we welcome all helping hands.
