    My name is Marion, I'm a 30 years old girl. I live in a yourt with my son (born in 2013).

    I got a land where there is planty of stuff to do. My project is to grow organic seeds.

    I have a yourt with water and electricity, and I can host people in a second yourt (this one is just a room).
    I can need help in the garden, or in my house, with my child or with the cooking...
    It could be what you like to do, or using your special skills if you have(carpenter, gardener, mechanic, cook...!)
    The currently project are:
    - Mulching
    - Cutting wood for next winter
    - Making external dry toilet
    - make outside stares
    - seeding
    - repoting
    - make compost

    I need people who are confortable with child around all the time.

    I speak french and english.

    We cannot eat milk and eggs. We don't smoke. We have a dog.

    For more details, feel free to ask.


    Je m'appelles Marion, j'ai 30 ans, j'habite dans une yourte avec mon fils de 6 ans.
    J'ai un terrain où il y a beaucoup à faire. Je reproduis des semences paysannes bio et des plants.
    Je vie dans une yourte où il y a l'eau et l’électricité, et j'accueille les gens dans une seconde yourte qui n'est qu'une chambre (sans eau, ni électricité.)

    De manière générale, j'ai besoin que les personnes qui viennent se sentent bien quand il y a des enfants, car mon fils, et ses amis, ne sont jamais loin!

    En ce qui concerne les travaux, j'ai besoin d'aide au jardin, ou dans la maison, ou avec mon fils ou encore pour cuisiner!

    Au niveau style de vie, côté régime alimentaire, on ne peux pas manger d’œufs ou de lait. On ne fume pas. Et sinon on a un chien et 2 chats.

    En ce moments les projets sont:

    - Pailler
    - Couper et ranger du bois pour l’hiver prochain.
    - Faire des toilettes sèches extérieur en récup.
    - Faire des escaliers extérieurs.
    - Semer
    - Rempoter
    - Faire du terreau
    - .... ....
