    We are a family of 5 and we set up a micro permaculture farmhouse. We also work on our autonomy (water, energy, food). We have some animals (ewes, chickens). In parallel we have an association with which we organize exchanges of knowledge, barter, afternoon games, evenings debates and festive events.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have been in the region for only three years and would be delighted to discover the Breton countryside, which is beautiful, together. We could teach you to speak French if you wish. The sea is a little less than an hour. We love to cook and can share good meals.

    Nous sommes dans la région depuis à peine trois ans et serions ravis de découvrir la campagne bretonne, qui est magnifique, ensemble. Nous pourrions vous apprendre à parler français si vous le souhaitez. La mer est à un peu moins d'une heure. Nous aimons cuisiner et pourrons partager de bons repas.

    Help

    We spend our days gardening, doing DIY (for animals, our campers), to set up our phyto purification, ponds and so on. We have a trailer to restore. We welcome campers in the summer and participate in the festival (the most famous french music festival) : we are volunteers to help in the festival and welcome and accommodate festival goers . You will be able to participate in all, it will be opt to you.
    We need some help to build two geodesic greenhouses, dry toilets and outdoor showers, to do permaculture truck farming, gardening, restore our trailer, to lay out a playground and organize some activities with our association, welcome our campers and festival goers, etc.
    We also look for people who can teach or share their passion of the art (drawing and painting) to our children.

    Nous passons nos journées à jardiner, bricoler (pour les animaux, nos campeurs), à mettre en place notre phyto épuration, des mares etc. Nous avons une roulotte à restaurer. Nous recevons des campeurs l'été et participons au festival des vieilles charrues (festival de musique). Vous pourrez participer à tout cela au choix.
    Nous recherchons également des gens qui peuvent enseigner ou partager leur passion de l'art (dessin et peinture) à nos enfants.
