    Description

    Welcome!

    We are : Damien, passionate about permaculture, eco-construction, personal developpement ; 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 in 2020 :

    - Monitoring the food forest garden
    - Ecological renovation
    - Monitoring the Mandala garden
    - Finishing the pond
    - Decoration and artistic design of the site

    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, music, come and join us ! 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. Feel free to share with us any other well-being practices.


    Languages : french, english, un poco di italiano

    * We welcome you with the following conditions :
    Vegetarian meals only and no alcohol.
    Camping in summer near the stream
