Hi - We've lived in Aveyron since 2001 but have recently moved house so need help establishing a garden. I am a yoga & Alexander Technique teacher who runs yoga & mindfulness retreats. I garden organically and am also interested in permaculture. We are vegetarian and eat mainly organic.
We live on the edge of a beautiful medieval village overlooking the Aveyron river gorge with south facing views over the forest. It's a great area for hiking, cycling, canoeing, rock climbing and horse riding. Helpers are welcome to join in weekly yoga class.
Plans for Spring 2020 are to improve the veggie garden and begin a permaculture forest garden. Possibly also to turn a stone hut into a summer dwelling with solar shower and compost toilet (if any helpers have building skills).
Autumn garden work includes pruning trees & shrubs, picking apples, chopping & stacking firewood.
We've hosted helpers for many years and it's been a great mutual experience. What I'm really offering is a refuge where you can reconnect with yourself whilst being surrounded by beautiful nature, eating healthily and hopefully becoming more mindful - which I believe is the key to health and happiness.
