We just settled in a nice red stone farm in the Southwest of France. We want to develop a permaculture and educational farm to have a more sustainable life and produce as less waste as possible. We already have 2 donkeys, a few chicken and goats, a large growing orchade and a nice veggie garden.

We need volunteers to help us in the garden, harvest wood and plants, take care of the trees and animals, renovate the house and many other things... So if you have skills about electricity, plumbing, carpentery, you are very welcome !! If not, don't worry you can help us in the everyday routine with wild harvests, garden and animals. There is all year long much to do.
We have several rooms in the house or you can camp outside if you prefer, we cook with wood only, we use as less electricity as possible (no fridge, washing machine, TV...), we use compost toilets and eat a lots of veggies and fruits.

There is no bus coming to our place and we don't have a car, you can hitchike to the farm or come with a neighbour.
