  • Description

    Description

    We are Tatiana (32), Awen (4), Yuna (2) and Bob (40).
    We have a small farm in the Tarn department. Tatiana grows small fruits and transforms them into delicious Sorbets.
    Bob has a web-shop and is starting a new business. Actually picking up where he left 10 years ago constructing & renting yurts. And accompanying people wanting to construct their own yurt.
    July & August is very busy for us and we're specifically searching for persons who'd love to help us with the kids.
    Although there is also help needed on the farm.

    We arrived in the Tarn department in January 2016. Since we've been replanting small fruits for Tatiana's agricultural activity.
    We finished a big renovation project on the house in 2018. We've got a new bathroom project for this autumn 2021.

    We met each other in the Dance culture : Contact-Improvisation & Balfolk. We don't get to do a lot of dance since we have a family and a farm, but it's in our roots and we love to do a little Bal from time to time.

    Tatiana finished a 2-year teacher training program 4 years ago in BMC (Body Mind Centering). She is following another training program this year involving Contact-Impro & BMC.
    Bob is a carpenter (not active on exterior building sites for the moment) and yurt-constructor. He has a commercial activity with an online shop. He's taking a big break from yoga & is trying to get back into Capoeira Angola. Which has always been a huge source of inspiration for him.
    We're juggling with work, passion & raising 2 kids at the same time.
