Help around the house
Ecology is very important to us, but because it's impossible to fight every battle, we have chosen to focus on food and waste.
We will ask you to share our habits while you're with us:
- we don't eat cow meat;
- we do the shopping together, in local shops and using our own packaging as much as possible;
We ask you not to buy any food before discussing with us how to get it in the most sustainable way.
We have one shopping list fot the entire family, your requests included.
We are also making some efforts to reduce our energy footprint, and we'll be sharing our solutions with you.
We enjoy experimenting new technics of farming and new ideas of educations of kids.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We need help in our experimental farm (permaculture, food forest and the like) and babysitting.
We will also need your help around dinner time for cooking and cleaning as part of your hours.
Every time you join us for lunch and breakfast, preparing and cleaning together is expected, not as work, but as a community duty.
