    Description

    Hello !

    We are very lucky to have a lot of spaces to share and a very nice view !

    We are several people, adult and children living together in house, yurt or caravan
    With cats, chicken, a mare, a donkey, falcon kestrels and lots of birds...

    We want to product vegetables plants and fruits for us and all people (mainly bicycle travelers) who stop at our farm.
    At least we also want to product cereals for the bread. Before we have a lot of work of renovation !
    we seek autonomy as much as possible and we want to do a sustainable project

    There is a big collective vegetarian kitchen in the barn.
    In the house we share the bathroom, a large games room, a large library and vinyl collection and internet access.
    We like to philosophize, do experimental music, play games, create stuff and stuff and take funny photos !
    (like the ones where a part of us poses in front of your host caravan ;)

    We don't speak and read english very well but we like to learn !

    We like to hosts families.
    We experience autonomous learning with children, unschooling : we answer their questions and teach them what they want when they ask and we regularly offer them activities. We really live together and children (between 4 and 7 years old) are very sociable and curious.

    The farm is on the edge of the eurobike 6 and we want it open to all travelers by bike. We already host with the network of hospitality "warm shower". Most of the time they arrive in the evening and leave on the roads the next morning. Sometimes they stay a day or two to take a break from their trip or exchange more with us.
    We want to operate on self-management and welcome at free price all those who wish to make a stop here

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We could exchange about gardening, repair of bike, bike traveling, phyto epuration, unschooling

    We like to try to deconstruct the different mechanisms of domination of human civilization.

    Every friday we make old-fashioned yeast bread in a friend’s bakery so may be we can teach you how do good bread !

    Help

    You have the choice :

    The large garden to feed the 8 people living here but also all the travelers by bicycle

    The construction sites of the season :
    - several barn doors to make or repair
    - the ceiling of the bike-metal workshop/ sleeping floor
    So welcome joiners or anyone wishing to work wood, we need you !

    And the 3 children are always happy to meet new people to play with them !

    We ask volunteers between 3 and 4 hours of activity and 1 hour of participation in daily tasks

    Very important : If you want to help us you have to be autonomous.
    that means that we don't want to be your boss, we trust you about you will manage your time and your rhythm and still work here !

    We would like you to stay for a minimum of two weeks. Preferably a month.
