    Description

    Welcome !

    We are : Damien, reflexologist, therapist, permaculture addict; Deborah, teacher of english through theatre, fiddle player from England. We are near the ‘Lac des Sapins’ and Amplepuis, 1 hour from Lyon.

    Our goal is to create a joyful, caring place where we can welcome others to share and exchange skills and experiment together more meaningful ways of living.

    Our place is a small farm dating back to the late 19th century with half a hectare of land and outbuildings (cow shed/barn which is being renovated, well/theatre building, healing centre for massage and well-being, future wwoofers place being renovated).

    Main projects :


    - Ecological renovation of a place for volunteers
    - Creating a food forest garden : selection and plantation of fruit trees, shrubs, ground-cover plants …
    - Permaculture design of the site
    - Decoration and artistic design of the site : natural paints on wood and stone, mandalas, signs ….
    - Building auto-compostable toilets, solar-powered shower
    - 
Building a hen house
    - Building a greenhouse
    - Monitoring the vegetable garden

    We are looking for experienced volunteers in these areas, as well as beginners, to take part in daily life in a relaxed atmosphere.

    If you want to learn about eco-construction, permaculture, picking wild plants, yoga, meditation, reflexology, massage, learning english through theatre, music, come and join us !
    Feel free to share with us any other well-being practices.

    We often go to the nearby lake (15 min by car) for a swim on a summer evening or go for a walk in the countryside around.

    Languages : french, english
    Accomodation : Camping - room
    Vegetarian meals only and no alcohol.
    Amplepuis train station is 10 min away, Lyon 1 hour away by train or car where you can visit the old town and the Basilica Fourvière.

    Give a description of what you expect of your stay and what you want to bring, in terms of skills. Please confirm dates and length of your stay (minimum 1 week).

    Looking forward to seeing you !
