    Description

    Our food self-sufficiency project is going on and we want to share our work and develop it. Still renovating our house and working outside at the same time, we would gladly accept the help of one or more people.

    The garden is lovely and needs maintenance, harvesting and watering.
    Hens, sheep and goats are waiting for you.
    Wood for the coming winters is waiting to be stored.
    The house we are renovating badly needs a boost: a lime slab, lime plaster, cob plaster, partitions, electricity, masonry, carpentry, joinery .. .
    Various construction projects in the field: compost toilets, solar showers, tool shed, a new henhouse etc ...

    You can stay 15 days minimum, after few days to get to know each other.
    It is possible to stay for a longer period if you are interested.

    You will stay in a caravan, which will be the first work to be done as they are loaned and in great need of refreshment.

    Of course everything is not said, surely we forget about it, do not hesitate so to contact us.

    Lieu ouvert a toutes personnes désireuses de s'investir sérieusement.

    Notre projet d'autonomie alimentaire suit son cours et nous souhaitons partager notre travail et le développer. Toujours en rénovation et travaillant a coté, nous accepterions volontiers l'aide d'une ou plusieurs personnes.

    Le potager est lancé et a besoin d'entretien, de récolte et d'arrosage.
    Les poules , moutons et boucs n'attendent que vous.
    Du bois pour les hivers a venir attend d’être rangés.
    La maison que nous rénovons a grandement besoin d'un coup de boost: une dalle chaux a faire, des enduits chaux, des enduits terre, des cloisons, de l'électricité, de la maçonnerie, de la charpente, de la menuiserie...
    Divers projets de construction sur le terrain: toilettes sèches, douches solaires, abri a outils, un nouveau poulailler plus grand etc...

    Vous pourrez venir pour 15 jours minimum, après qques jours de connaissances réciproques.
    Il est possible de rester pour une plus longue période si vous estes investis.

    Nous pouvons logés en caravane, qui sera le premier chantier, car elles sont prêtées et ont grandement besoin d'un rafraîchissement.

    Bien sur tout n'est pas dit, on en oublie, n’hésitez pas a nous contacter.
