    salut !
    Hi!
    Hallo !

    We are :

    I'm Cécile, the mother, taking care of the house, the kids, the animals, the garden.... I can speak german, english.

    2 boys Timéo, 8 and Yanaël, 6. Both unschooled. They learn the life at home, in the nature and throught the big variety of our activities, throught free playing, throught experimentation, with many different persons...

    Our project : we plan to develop an eco-tourism (B&B, camping...) place in the forest, 2 houses to renove, 1ha for the garden, the animals and the camping,... Everything is to do !

    I need your help for (depends of your skills) :
    - take care of the kids : play games with them, go in the forest, help by the homeschooling (teach/speak german with them), build a shack/hut, ...
    - cooking (meals or preserves)
    - take care of the animals (chicken, rabbits), build rabbits cages, renove a chicken house
    - pick wild plants, plant trees, begin the garden (permaculture)
    - build a solar dryer (the old one is getting bad)
    - construction : break walls, build new walls, lime concrete, terracotta tiles, tadelakt, lay a wooden floor, install sink and shower in bathrooms,... You, also some of my friends, will help me in selfrenovation. It’s a cooperativ building.
    Some professionnal builder will come for the shell structure : isolation, roof, plumping, heating...
    I do self – with helper- the interior work, as much as I can with alternativ technics or material (hemp and lime coating, terracotta, …) and creativ intentions (mosaic, tadelakt…), in sens of ecorenovation.


    We live in South Moselle / Meurthe et Moselle, close to Sarrebourg.
    We have a big connexion with the nature.
    Few words to explain our way of life : non-violence, empathic listening, permaculture, ecology, simplicity, well-being, vital energy, ...

    Help : 4 hours a day
    One day free in the week

    We prefer if you speak a bit of french.

    A bientôt !
