  • Description


    Hello! We are looking for some strong and helpful people to help with the reconstruction of our home. My companion had an working accident 6 years ago, since that day he had a very long recovery period. He was not able to take care of the house. Now after 6 years, we (Jean-Paul, me and my tree adolescents sons) want to finish the works he started before his accident so our house can be a happy home for our family.
    So, by this way we are looking for a few strong peoples to help us.
    Jean-Paul is a passionate tree worker, with a very large knowledge about trees and nature. He loves to spread his knowledge. He only speeks French, but I will be very happy to help translate.
    About me: I am mother of tree sons, traveled with my kids when the where baby's and stayed in France to live and meet the love of my live Jean-Paul.
    If you want to spend some time in de south east of France with his nice village's and market's you can come and give us a hand. Wood-works, plumbing , gardening,....

    See you soon!
