    Description

    In a lovely place with old cork trees and spring water, we are a small community trying to building an Oasis for the next generation.
    I live with my 2 kids, Alice and Olmo, some residents and volonteers, a dog and some cats.
    Coming from childhood dream to live in a treehouse, we start this project 7 years ago, in a small caravan in the forest, on the slope off a mountain. Now with much more conforme but still with conscience of where come from things.
    We are restoring a farm to create a refuge in a very privileged place to care for people and earth.

    Getting autonomy is our main stream. We look for gardeners and handy personn to finish Tree house and cooker to help with "pizza pottery party", beer making, all with fun and Love :)
    The food propose is vegetarian and accommodation camping or you can stay in a gipsy caravan and can use the hot shower and kitchen. It is simple, but lovely, specially in for nature lover.
    Normaly you help and learn 5*5h /weeks so more or less 25 hours.
    Familly with kids are welcome!
    We can not smoke on the property.

    We are waiting for you! :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will benefit from multi-language-kids speaking, living on top of a beautiful mountain, near to a castle and to medieval city. You can stay in an old english caravan, with a permaculture landscaping design outside. You can also learn about water management, gardening, recycling, upcycling, wood working and about new cultures and languages - because you will stay in touch with people from many places, so you can try new foodies too. You can swim in a natural lac or river, but the mainly thing is that you will be close to wild nature in a small paradise.
