    Description

    Since years we travel to Lefkada and year after year we start collecting lands with lot of idea in mind.
    In 2021, the global crisis help us to make the moove and with our 2 children (Alice 6 years and Noe 3years at this time) we decide to take a one way tickets.
    3 month later and a lot of back pain our place start to look better (we have hot shower, outside wc, a big kitchen and a growing permaculture farm).
    It’s a beginning stage of set up in the wilderness.
    We do live outside and sleep in a caravan (and have another for the teacher of our kids).
    A standard day is between what we call the farm (for moment a big mandala garden), Tipitoes (kids place) and the living space (where we try to work mostly with stones and wood (and a bit of concrete to consolidate it all)).
    To be honest we discover some fun and amazing people in here who explain us that we should be here and get volunteers as we have a big projects wich can interested many so here we are and till now we are glad for all this meet and exchange with Workaways.

    Help

    Lucia need help in "the Farm", Renaud in the community space. Lot to do everyday to keep busy (not mentioning our very lively children).
    Depending of your interest you will join one workshop (some are more physical in the building or farming but we can also find some less physical (cooking, activities with kids)).
    Following what we read we'd like to propose a classic barter: a place to sleep and some good food. In exchange we'd like 4 or 5 hours of daily help (5 days a week). We are flexible people and it s all can be discussed anyway ;)
