    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I'm peaceful on the campagne : 120 hectares of forest around the house to walk, some lakes you can go on bike.

    We have a small city but with all the accommodation (bakery, pub, restaurant, pharmacie, supermarket, small shop) to 7 km. Bikes are lend. We often have animations on villages nearby.

    About 30 minutes bus, you can do some kayaking, camping, shopping. You have the bus-station to go to Toulouse ( 30 minutes more).
    Toulouse called the “pink city”, is one of the biggest city in France. Architecture and parcs make it a beautiful city with welcoming and kind people.
    Currently, it’s a city with a lot of musician and lot of music in pub and multiple places.
    You have many attractions a big city can purpose.

    If you have a car, it's around 1 hour to arrive at the beginning of montagne : the Pyrenees.

    I build a house with eco-materiel and reused-material and create a garden. I need help on different subject :

    - help to build the house : clean construction material (tile, wood...), coat with tar for waterproofing or with clay for straw, creation of outside kitchen ...
    - keep taking care of the garden : plant, water, take care of the vegetable garden, remove the weeds, dig the pond, build a birdhouse, put in a swimming pool, create a structure for tree...
    - prepare meals for dinner : in France (and for me !). It's essential for having a good trip and doing a good job, we need to make good home cooking.

  • Accommodation


    There is a trailer tent for workers. Two rooms with two little beds two places, covered awning and closed of 16 mp² with kitchen/living room. A wooden shed for the shower with hot water ( with gaz or sun) and dry toilet.

    The place is not connected yet to electricity (generator and portable battery) and water (1000L of reserve) and we have to use it with parsimony.

    Meals, which are mainly vegetarian, have to be made on one or two days basing ( because of the fridge and electricity). I'd like to make the best use of the sun to cook with solar glass pip and solar hoven ( to build). I hope to success the vegetable garden to eat his production with you. It's important for me to make home cooking and use the less as possible transformed food.
    I ask you to prepared the dinner and toping for breakfast but i certainly would help you somtimes because i love cooking.
    We hear a lot that dinner time is important in France, in all case it it for me because it’s a real moment of sharing. Yo will be free for the lunch.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I like to live in a community. I’ve already made workaway and lived in a co-location. I appreciate meeting new people, culture and ways of thinking.
    I like top work with people because it gives energy and motivation, and I have the feeling of being more efficient. Energy of work groups is truly something beautiful to my eyes.

    I work at fulltime as I try to build my own house and gear up the place.

    You will see me in the evening from around 5 p.m and the week ends.
    We will work together 2 or 3 hours the evenings and 5 hours a day on week ends. You will have 2 days off per week, choice at your convenience.

    The organization of working time may be discussed together.
    You will be independant for the rest of the day to prepare the schedule, to choose the organisation of your day.
