    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    There are many different manifestations, bulls, farms, arenas, music, and most importantly, food and wine!
    And all in the biggest forest of Europe, and with villages of more than 2000 years old like Bazas.

    Pratically, we speak all time of permaculture things, how our farm should be more resilliant. This is our master subject, as we are bluiding this place. As french people, we speak of cooking.

    In this land of history, differents traditions (boeufs gras, palombière, chasse à courre, village's parties, corridas...) are part of our life.

    We love cinéma, books and contemplation.

    L’été dernier notre maison a été rénovée en chantier participatif. Certains sont revenu cette hiver, certains sont resté vivre avec nous quelques temps. Ce printemps sera l’occasion de mettre en place un gîte étape, des yourtes, un mandala, aménager un garage solidaire, rénover le poulailler, faire un abris pour les chevaux, construire une cabane au bord du lac, faire des cabanes dans les arbres.
