  • Description


    Couple who have just bought a chalet alpage. It is a bit of a wreck and we need some help. We are green orientated, but not fanatical. We have many projects, from tidying the place up making it sound for our first winter, create a path to the mountain stream. Work out how to get water from stream to house, we do have mains water as well. Building a treehouse Making a good garden, making a summer kitchen, fixing the roof. There will be something you can do. Ten years ago at our previous place we hosted over 60 volunteers and seem to keep in touch with quite a few of them.
