  • Description

    Description

    Situated in the foothills of the Pyrenees, with 4 hectares of scenic terrain bordered by a large stream.
    As well as having a variety of animals, organic vegetable garden and fruit tree orchard, we are currently developing the project in order to be a workshop/retreat centre.
    We are progressively aiming to live as a small collective.
    Currently we are looking to have 2-3 helpers who are open to the possibility of staying for longer, to help especially with building wooden cabins (some experience with DIY would help.)

    Nous sommes situés dans un petit village aux pieds des Pyrénées ariégeoises.
    Pas vraiment une ferme, mais très jolie 4 hectares de prairie, bois, verger et potager avec ruisseau, animaux de compagnie (chevaux, chèvres, cochons nains, mouton d'ouissant, chiens, chats, poissons rouges etc :).... en plein nature mais près de la ville.
    Grande maison, avec des caravanes, sauna sur le terrain, et une grande yourte pour yoga/méditation/stages.
    Projet de devenir centre de stages, retraits, accueil.... avec l'idée de devenir un PETIT COLLECTIF/COMMUNAUTÉ à long terme, donc on privilégie les gens qui cherchent un lieu pour s'installer.
    Actuellement on a besoin d'aide pour la construction d'une cabine en bois, nourrir et s'occuper des animaux (nourrir les chevaux et les chèvres, sortir les chiens en balade...), entretenir notre petite serre et notre potager. Nous sommes ègalement très ouverts à toutes propositions et initiatives.
    S’intéresse au chant, musique, danse, eco construction, nature, méditation / yoga / soins du corps et de l'esprit!!
    Langues : anglais, français et tchèque parlé.
