    --------> All of the information below can be provided in French or Spanish, please ask

    We need volunteers to help the daily life of a community living closed to nature and during the permaculture and bioconstruction courses we regularly receive.

    This place is located 40min from Nice, it's called Lou Neissoun. The surrounding forest is a real source of inspiration, harmony and tranquility, which will offer us a serene space conducive to learning as well as a source of quality raw materials to carry out our practical projects.

    This summer we are looking for volunteers for 2 periods :
    - 6 July to 12 July : we will be preparing the place for receiving a course in August. We will work on a camping area and all that's necessary to host a group of people nicely.
    - 4 August to 16 August : the volunteers will cook for participants of permaculture courses. On their free time, volunteers are welcome to follow the course ! The courses are held in french and are about "gestion écologique de l'eau" and "agroforesterie et forêt-jardin".

    Be part of a community and learn about permaculture !
