  • Description


    My name is Aurora. I have recently moved into a small town in the alpes and I am working towards my self-sufficiency in terms of food. So mainly my project now is permaculture, growing my own food.
    I have a small garden for now, and a greenhouse . I would love to expand a bit more. Also, I wish to build at some point un underground greenhouse, dry toilets.
    There are 5 chickens on the land, 4 cats one dog. I would love to meet someone who is willing to stay for one year at my place .

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They could learn about living in the countryside, the cycle of nature, gardening, permaculture, and eco-building. Actually this we will learn together as I am also new.
    Also, I am a certified Yoga teacher and I would love to share.
    I speak fluently 4 languages and I am happy to share.

  • Help


    I will provide a room in a very cozy house. In exchange, I ask for 2 hours/per day, of work, 5 days a week.
    For now, this is all I can offer, but as the garden offers her's fruits I am happy to share.

    The work to be asked will be from the followings:
    Help with the organization of the library (there are more than 3000 books in the house that I will love to organize)
    Some maintaining of the house (cleaning, organizing, or repairing )
    Eco building

    Mainly we will decide together what can be done.
    I am at the moment also studying, so I do not have that much time for working and maybe sharing, this is one of the reasons I ask for help, so I can finish my studies and also build a sustainable way of living.
    At my place, you will be independent in terms of work and if I have the time I will join you.
