  • Description


    I'm Sylvie and leaving in Guadeloupe for 12 years now. I live with my girl, lili, 11 years old, who loves to speak english and spanish too. I'm fluent in english, and can help with learning french too. I've build a wood house in a little forest in Bouillante, and create an artistique ecological and spiritual place on the same ground. I love to share in this way, be part of the creation of new visions of life and happiness. I will need some help to support me with the house (maintaining, taking care of my house and animals (dogs and cats) when I'm not here), and develop and maintain the collective place (wood eco-construction).
    I've got the projet to build a wood and ecological lodge in my garden soon too... I've got an extra room to receive one person and material to camp too!!

    I know guadeloupe well, because I live there and I have been working there for 12 years, as a teacher in biology and ecology, and dance teacher. I speak fluent English and a little bit of Spanish. Eco-construction projects will be done with the help of a qualified person. People will have the opportunity to participate in the activities of the association

    Je connais bien la guadeloupe, car j'y vis et j'y travaille depuis 12 ans, en tant qu'enseignante en biologie et écologie, et professeur de danse. Je parle couramment l'anglais et un peu l'espagnol. Les projets d'éco-construction se feront avec l'aide d'une personne qualifiée. Les personnes auront sur le lieu la possibilité de participer aux activités de l'association
