We're a few people living in the Pyrenees mountains (south of france near mediterannée sea), a place isolated from road and town.
Our main goal is to restore the potential of the old little village La Coume to allow people to live there.
We run different projects: organic gardening, raising animals (chickens, goats, donkeys, horses), rebuilding ruins with old methods, making our own energy.
I am looking for people to help me and in exchange I will be happy to give them food, housing, activities happening around in the valley, trekking and exchange knowledge.
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
Help with Computers / internet
Most of work is outside: building with stones, electric fences, clean the fields, raise and work with animals, make wood for winter. Sometimes we can work inside to finish the inside houses.
I expect autonomus people who are not afraid to work hard and walk.
People need to be able to reach us by foot,work independently, cook for everyone, do a bit of housekeeping.
You must be aware that it's not a holiday center...
I look for people (one at the same time) who would stay a minimum of 3 weeks and a maximum of 2 months, with one week trial not negotiable. We may see together for a longer stay.
I only accommodate one helper at a time and he will be lodged in a commune house with a dry toilet outside or a tipi.
Other subject (nothing to see with accomodating workawayers):
If you are a couple and you are looking for a place to live, our project may interest you. There are ruins waiting to be rebuilt and lands to be work by motivated people. I will be happy to discuss it with you.
In any case don’t hesitate to contact me for more information. I look forward to hearing from you.
