We are a couple that moved from a rural life in Turkey to a similar one in France. In Turkey we organically farmed and hosted over 70 volunteers and are now looking to do the same in central France.
We have rescue dogs and donkeys.
DIY and building projects
Over the years that we have had volunteers I like to think that we have learnt from them as much as they can learn from our experiences and travels. I am an avid cook so always happy to teach. Gardening advice and knowledge is always on hand as is animal welfare.
We require help with the poultry and donkeys and general work in the garden. We always have a project on the go, hypertufa, creating secret corners in the garden, wacky chicken houses.
We have dry stone walls to repair, paths to create and fencing to complete, always something on the go.
We would like help from 9.00 - 12.00 and then 3.00 -5.00
