You will learn french and english as those languages are both spoken here ( I am french and Daniel is Canadian).
You will live with a community of 3 volunteers that will help for construction and garden work. So the atmosphere is always nice and lively around the house.
You will learn about autonomy as we are completely self sufficient in energy and working our way to be self sufficient in food.
You will live in a beautiful region of mountains and lakes were you can do tons of hiking and sports.
We have a natural swimming pool and a wood burning sauna on site that we take advantage of all the time.
We love making bonfires and playing music outside.
