    Please contact in French

    Our project is an energy-autonomous Eco-place, at an altitude of 1000 m in the middle of the forest in the Jura near Haute Savoie and Geneva. We are 6 people living in this place with 4 dogs and 3 horses. Our project is to live in an eco-housing with as much autonomy as possible and a connection to the living things around us... The place is available to an association, which organizes courses and participatory workshops on Permaculture, energy autonomy, animal communication, shamanism... to raise awareness as soon as possible about the protection of the Earth and the living things that inhabit it. We welcome people in exchange mode, fed and housed in a yurt from March to October for periods of 15 days, 3 weeks to help with the maintenance of the place, the garden, meals and small jobs...
