  • Description


    I bought a housse in the Pyrenees. It’s no connected to the usual network (water / electricity / phone).
    The goal is to bring comfort without using petrol and nuclear energy.
    Moreover I want to be suffisant in food (vegetable and chicken).
    I need help to get enough time to work on my biodigestor, which will be my main power solution.
    Best is to contact me. I speak English / French and Spanish

    I also cook and like to share dishes from all around the world (mainly French / Italian / Asian food). I like all kind of music (rap /reggae/ rock /techno/swing...).
