    We need some help in our old house and organic garden in “ les monts du Forez”
    We are looking for help at the house (cleaning, painting...), and in the garden. (We have a big garden with many vegetables). There are two parts in the house, before we lived in the big one, but now it’s easier to heat the little one. So we have to tidy up and clean up, maintain and restore the big one. We also have projects round the house, we began to build a little hobbit house with our grandchildren in the woods at the end of the property. Yves likes old newspapers very much, he will be happy to have somebody to help him. And once a week it will be good for the little boys (9 and 12 years old) to speak with you. we have little trees in the wood, and it will be good to cut herbs around them.
