    Description

    Hi Volunteers !
    You're energetic, resourceful and curious about anything ?!
    I will be glad to welcome you and we'll have a lot to share together.

    You're interested :
    in babies and alternative education ?
    in organic agriculture ? (fertility soils, vegetable cycles, orchard, pastoral hedge,..) and living in the countryside at the season rythm ?
    in cooking vegetables of the season all year long ?
    or just interested in sharing french culture and learn french/english ?
    I think you belong to there ;) we can start talking (by message at first)

    Being host to woofers some years ago, I realized how meeting passionate people enriched me and the baby. And I also realized I could need help in daily life (maintenance, cooking, bringing the baby from his nany to the field or house,...) during the rush period of market gardening. My farm is in the process of construction so it take me a lot of energy and and I found wonderful to share this experience.

    About me :
    I am Sarah, 34, organic farmer since 2019, I am growing more than 40 different vegetables in my microfarm (no animal for the moment). I am also a young mother of a little boy (1,5 year) . I am a very sociable person so I love receiving my friends and family all other the season ! For the moment we live in a big house in the village center of MOYEN, East France. The house is located at 1km of the microfarm so reachable by foot/bicycle/car. In the field I have a caravan which can be renovated (one of my many projects).
    Energetic and passionate about organic gardening and natural life, I love sharing my experiences and skills.
    in fact I love sharing about life in general and to learn about each other !

    About our life :
    My baby goes to his nany place about 3 days a week and went some half days in his father place.
    I try to work 5/7 days a week in order to enjoy time with my child as well.

    I need people autonomous who can help me with cooking, dishes washing, cleaning up, bringing some days the baby from nany to the field or to have some walk around with him to let me finish my work.
    I would like somebody easy to live and who can babysitt sometimes (once or twice a week).
    Your weekends could be free depends on you and your wishes.
    I prefer people who can stay if possible, minimum 3weeks/1 month in order not to be so changing for the baby (and Me!)
    I like to discuss about your expectations before coming in order that everybody will be happy with this experience :)
    Specificity : if you would like to discover a way of life different from what the consumption capitalist society propose, I think my place would be a good one to approach it...

    LOCATION:
    During your stay, being near the Vosges you can easily discover the area. Many nature hikes in the Mortagne valley and the Vosges mountains or on the city side, Strasbourg, Nancy, Lunéville,..

    Lunéville is reachable by Bus, then trains to Nancy/Strasbourg/Saint Dié des Vosges
    If you have a car, it's even better .
    I can possibly lend a bike during the whole stay.
    Nearest train station : Lunéville (15km)

    NB :
    I can welcome helpers from march to october just contact me and we'll see together
    If you are a couple it is possible to have you, just contact me, we can share good moments together
    I would have prefer foreign people but if you're french or french talking and still interested JUST contact me ! :)
