We are a young non-profit cooperative (a eco-place) which has just bought an old mill in Binic (22) in France. In addition to being human and pleasant, we are under the status of real estate cooperative and we have many sites that require skills and manpower. The project carries humanist, social, ecological values...
Help with Eco Projects
DIY and building projects
After the work, you are free to enjoy our beautiful region, we can provide you with bicycles. We can also share moments around a good meal, cook together, play board games, go for a walk or swim at the beach ... We are in a process of transparency, benevolence, benevolent communication ... which are not negotiable and could be the cause of a premature end of the helpx.
Our rules regarding helpers:
- we do not realize any turnover on the work of helpers
- we apply the same rules of benevolence towards helpers as to ourselves.
# Works / Schedules
For construction times, we are open to all formats and all times. We can discuss it and anyway, we are not already imposing on us 8 hour days so it should be around 4/5 hours per day, 5 days max per week. In land of need the list is large:
- cleaning / storage
- market gardening / gardening / brush cutting
- electricity / DIY
Current projects :
- hydroelectricity with water from the mill
- nourishing forest
- bread oven
- low tech
- (and why not a project that you could suggest to us ;)
We decided not to host all the time to do it well and in good conditions. Do not hesitate to contact us by proposing your dates or by asking us for dates for a specific period. If a project or sites are of particular interest to you, do not hesitate to let us know too.
We are so happy to be hosts after having been helper for years all over the world.
For the moment the reception conditions are spartan (but we still have hot water and electricity in our house):
- shower (shared) in a hangar (no heating, but hot water)
- toilets (shared) also under the hangar (no heating)
- kitchen (shared) but warm ;)
The ideal would therefore be for you to be "autonomous" for sleeping with a van / motorhome / tent... If this is not the case and you are really motivated, the house of the miller, who does not has not yet been renovated, can accommodate you (the weather is better but there is no electricity). If the reception period is not too long, we can also offer you our sofa (with the stove).
The network is capricious (internet only with Orange and Bouygues and again it is not a panacea) but we have wifi at home with internet (but no streaming, we are limited in speed). In terms of food, we take care of all meals except breakfast (normally we do not take any), the meals are vegetarian and mainly local and organic.
