  • Description


    We are a little open minded community in the great landscape of the Jura mountains in the west of Switzerland. We are situated in an old train station surrounded by meadows and forests with free running horses in summertime.

    This is a place surrounded by nature, very good for disconnect. We have a garden where we apply the permaculture style. We also organize seminars and workshops about ecological and spiritual growth.

    It is a place for volunteers who want to learn, share, experience and enjoy. We are accompanied by chickens, cats and four wonderful horses which are our best trainers in personal development.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are living in the french speaking part of Switzerland. We try to speak french as much as possible - but as we are a multicultural place we speak many different languages. We are happy to introduce you to the Swiss culture. You can learn about permaculture, horses, animals, cooking, house maintenance, herbs, natural products production and you can also profit of our wonderful room for meditation or yoga.

  • Help


    At the moment we need all kinds of help in any field: garden, animals, and also a person with skills to repair tools, furniture and that can do other construction jobs in and around the living areas. As a requirement, we only accept people who, at least, are able to stay one month at the place. It would be also greater if you speak french or, at least, you want to learn it!
