  • Description


    My family is starting to develop a eco farming: garden, fruit trees, hens, sheeps, all in 9 hectares of grassland and a little forest. We would like to start this year to make a bigger garden and prepare the fences for receiving some horses at the end of 2020.
    We have several projects to choose helping:
    - Support at home to collaborate at home with regular activities, and support with children (they are home schooling)
    - Repair and install fences for the backyard and grassfield
    - help gathering firewood and cut poles from the nearby forest
    - Help to arrange tools, firewood, and materials stocked
    Other ideas are to prepare a greenhouse and rebuild/reparing some buildings and cover for the animals. We would also appreciate support with day to day activities in the house, cleaning the yard, or anything that can support children's activities

    What else ...

    You can do plenty of things, walking in the forest, vineyards, cycling around (beautiful landscape), there is a nearby lake where you can do nautic sports, swimming. A nearby village (La chartre sur le loir) can offer restaurants, bars, and it's quite unique. During the 24 h of Le Mans, the most beautiful cars pass by the Paris Hotel.
