I live in de East Pyrenees at the bottom of de Canigou mountain in a little village called LOS MASOS with my wife wich is artist and our 2 childs (Elyna - 13 years and Swan - 2years and a half). I'm 43 years old and speak french, dutch, spanish and english. I work since 20 years in a natural park in mountain pyrénees, I'm also mountain guide and i'm implicated in a few projets about environnement, organic agriculture, energy...
Actually I'd like to change my professionnal projects and i begun starting a little agriculture activity (roses and wine). I have some ground (historically cultures but now bushes and trees) wich i want to clean to prepare de ground for plantations later ( fruit trees and roses from Damas).
The exchange I propose is to discover the french and catalan culture in a very nice place in france where it's possible to discover a lot of differents landscapes, biodiversity, special birds, mountain goats... in a place where de gastronomic uses are very nice and from good quality and local productions.
My project :
Agro-ecological and organic farming, reflexing about sustainable development, using different materials and machines...
I need one (or two) person who can help me with working outside in de bush to kut trees and bushes and clean de ground.
Iy means activities like carrying wood, using different tools for kutting bushes... and a few plantations. It is important to like manual work outside.
