    We are currently renovating and developing properties in France and are looking to convert small holding (made up of several old stone houses and barns) into workshop spaces for next year to do introduction to permaculture, screen printing and basic renovation techniques including organic insulations (hemp,...).

    We live in a lovely part of France, we are located near the beautiful Gorges d'Aveyron. No French is required, but any language skills you have would be a bonus!

    Tasks: There are two projects. For the first project, the main tasks include basic building skills/practical skills, and a willingness to learn. A driving licence would be beneficial but not essential. There are also bikes available, with the nearest town being 4km away.

    Feel free to contact us for further information.

    The Aveyron is perfect for those who love nature and rural life. From thriving local markets in bustling towns and villages, to open fields and routes perfect for long walks and bike rides, the region has so much to offer! When the weather is warm, there are many places along the river where you can go kayaking or even swimming! Local sites of interest include some of the Most Beautiful Villages in France, following the route of the Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle pilgrimage, chateaux and historical monuments.
