  • Description

    Description

    We are a family (parents around 40 years and 2 girls of 7 and 2 years old) involved in an eco touristic project : host tourist and events in a place eco built and eco maintained. We are at the beginning of the adventure and we plan to built Zomes, do permaculture, protect and manage biodiversity.
    The ecosite is on 4,5 ha of land and wood, quite a big game area !
    We eat organic as most as possible, not vegetarian but few meat eaters.
    We love meeting people and travel to discover other cultures and way of life.
    Anne is coach, speaker and teacher; she organizes also the events and manage communication. She was previously in charge of biodiversity management (3000ha) in Camargue.
    Virgile is the builder and gardener. He was previously in charge of quality, environnement and project management as work supervisor in civil engineering for Vinci.
    We have a cat and a young dog, soon chicken...among a wide range of wild animals !
    We prefer no smoking guests.
    We are located in the south of Toulouse, in Comminges (45mn by car or train, railway station next 10km).
    Please ask if you want more details :-)

    You will help and moreover learn in a community volunteering project for building the zomes & the self-catering house, the plant-based water purification, etc. Your participation can be also in the garden, in the wood, to maintain the outdoor furnitures / equipment, etc.
    We need also help at home and with the children (cooking, playing, care). And because we have a big garden, we will enjoy picking fruits and cooking jams together ;-)
