  • Description


    We are a multi-generational vegan family that is deeply concerned with creating a place of food autosufficiency by re-creating the veganic vegetable garden and orchard that used to be present on the land around our home. Most of that work will take place in from January through October. Veganic permaculture is what we will be practicing and this would be a great opportunity for smeone wanting to do this later for themselves. Besides that the experience is more about country life with long discussions about how to become a better human being and a force for good . We are bilingual and love to share our knowledge of the beautiful places around our home that people can visit. Guests can learn vegan cuisine from Deborah and Caroline who are both former gourmet vegan chefs and now professional vegan culinary teachers , by helping to prepare daily meals with them. When our cooking classes are on, help with clean-up ( zen activity if ever there was one:) is always a wonderful help in making things flow.

    as I struggle to make a new website , any help there would be appreciated.

    Deborah can teach both English , French, meditation, veganism, permaculture, vegan cooking and pastry and French art and culture .

    Looking forward ot getting to know you!!

    We have independent lodging for two helpers who will have their own bedrooms and simply share a bathroom. The property is lovely with a brook, a pony, two dogs and two cats!

    Workawayers can help make meals with me during which I will teach them ( and give them recipes.) They will definitely find it to be a huge and valuable learning experience
