  • Description


    Welcome !
    I'm Adrien from an association under the 1901 law created in 2019. It was initiated in partnership with a Cooperative which aims to "acquire and free up agricultural land and real estate", placed in self-management.

    The purpose of the association is to cultivate, produce commons, share and protect living things as a whole. Its overall project is to support and animate the creation of a solidarity network, allowing collective and cooperative efforts towards ever greater ecological resilience and autonomy. We are not a community, rather a group of individuals. To carry our common objectives, we evolve together on collective places:

    You will not participate in any commercial activities.
    None of the produce Workawayers are helping with is for sale to the public

    You will be welcomed on the Villemercier land,
    It ensures the essential of the gardening production, and it is a powerful engine for the development of the association.

    On the land, activities abound: gardening from sowing to harvesting, on living soil and without mechanization; planting of trees and shrubs. Transformation of surplus vegetables, which provides part of our food during the winter. Building and equipment development. These grounds are places conducive to experimentation of all kinds, your desires and your initiatives will also be welcome. Often, learning goes both ways.

    You will not participate in any commercial activities.
    None of the produce Workawayers are helping with is for sale to the public

    In addition, the association aims to be a springboard, a place of welcome and transition for people wishing to live, get involved and develop their personal and/or collective projects in this very dynamic territory. Our plurality is our strength, our complementarity is virtuous in the network of the territory that we operate, in connection with other associations.

    And of course, fundamentally we aspire to live well together.
    Solidarity, mutual aid and conviviality animate our daily life!

    Food will be provided morning noon and evening.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The region is the Perigord Vert,
    it is a countryside active in changes and in agriculture and mutual aid but the places are 10km from each other so you have to be able to move by bike or by car
    There are many things to do and not to do.
    Spring, summer and autumn are exceptional
    Winter is difficult :D
