  • Description


    The association is about artherapy and social work.
    the place is an old farm, middle of pyrénnées with a few animals and a big and very nice garden.

    i know about nature (was a professional gardener), about art with puppets, i like spinoza and hanna arendt. the place is a renovated farm. most of work was done collectively( new windows, painting lime, coats, insulation).We usually host people and sometimes homeless people. The help is about ecological building of a coat with straw, lime and earth and also help in gardening , cutting tree branches, work the ground of the trees, digging vegetable garden, collect vegetables.
