  • Description


    Lost in the middle of 14 000 ha of forest, I develop a small eco campsite with lots of project for enthusiastic volunteer.
    Being a volunteer myself for few years around the world, I'm happy to also host volunteers.
    I'm chef by trade and I also got experience in eco construction working in this field for few years). I have two boys (6 and 8 years old) who live part time with me.

    In 2012, I create in a beautiful spot in the Vosges forest, a friendly, small, eco campsite.
    It's created for Nature lovers who want to stay in home made cabins or in tent.

    Stunning scenery, friendly and relaxing atmosphere, originality, homemade, conviviality are just few ideas about this place.

    PARTICULARITY for helpers who want to learn by doing :
    If you stay minimum one month and have few basis using tools : development of low tech technology project
    (We choose together a low technology project depending of the need and your abilities, the length of your stay, time I have to share my knowledge and we design and create your own project which make sense for you, volunteers, customers, kids, ...)

    Helpers can also join on the project who are on at the moment or just for the general maintenance of the house/ garden (driven in different techniques for expérimentation : permaculture, brf, .. ), ... There is a variety of jobs for everyone.
    At this moment there is mainly jobs around wood working until end of february, then will start the set up of the garden

    See you soon.
