  • Description


    Hi, we're living in south of France (Ariège). We came here in septembre 2017 and theres lot of work for preparing garden, chickens, fruit trees, littles houses... We've children from all age , also 2 babies . We would like some help for childrens (4 till 8) and babies and in school holidays kids from 12 till 15 and babies. There's work for making wood, fences , chickens, gardening (permaculture) , and others out there. But also housework and things in house. We 're eating raw in family , sometimes végetables cooked for children and school lunch. We've a little cottage for workers 200m from our house. Shower in the house.

    we (my companion and I) are now installed on a beautiful land 20 minutes from Saint Girons in Ariège at the foot of the Pyrenees. We have just arrived in september 2018. We wish to create an ecological and biological place (permaculture) with a large kitchen garden, a few animals, various small and large houses, fruit trees, etc. We have children of all ages and we expect twins for the end of January 2019. Currently we need help for children from 4 to 8 years and babies and during the school holidays, we would have the big ones from 12 to 16 years old and babies. Then help to make wood, fences, hens, preparation garden / mounds and other work outdoors. But also for housework and small jobs in the house. We eat mostly raw (from everything) with family, from time to time soups, vegetables and gluten-free cooked especially for children / canteen. For the people who help, we have planned a 2 huts 100m from the house. Shower and kitchen in our house.


    Bonjour , nous (mon compagnon et moi) sommes en train de nous installé sur un magnifique terrain à 20 min de Saint Girons en Ariège au pied des Pyrénées. On vient d'arriver en sept 2018. Nous souhaitons créer un lieu écologique, biologique (permaculture) avec un grand potager, quelques animaux, différents petits et grands habitations, des arbres fruitiers, etc. Nous avons des enfants de tous les âges et 2 bébés. Actuellement nous avons besoin de l'aide pour les enfants de 4 à 8 ans et les bébés et pendant les vacances scolaires, nous aurions les grands de 12 à 16 ans et les bébés. Puis aider pour faire du bois, des clôtures, poules, préparation jardin/buttes et autres travaux à l' extérieure . Mais aussi pour le ménage et des petits travaux dans la maison. Nous mangeons principalement cru ( de tout) en famille, de temps en temps des soupes, légumes et sans gluten cuit surtout pour les enfants / cantine. Pour les gens qui aident , nous avons prévu une des cabanes à 100m de la maison. Douche et cuisine dans notre maison.
