    Hi ! We are a family of 4 (with 2 kids of 6 and 2 years old) living in the forest beside the river but close to the village (Goyave in uadeloupe). We are trying to live in harmony with the nature as much as we can. Our project is ecologic and cultural (musical). After storm Fiona and intense rain we recently had big damage and lost a part of the house/landslide.
