Speaking english and spanish, i love to share knowledges on organic farming, and more generaly natural life. I practice and listen to a lot of modern music, and like to comment on movies, animes and some series. Through my studies, i learned the basics of sociology and politics, developing a further interest, through trips, in anthropology. I also try to take time to open to more concrete science like Physics, Biology, and even dietetics.
Working soil, seeding, planting, weeding, gathering and all types of farm activities. I try to get inspirations from both permaculture and bio-intensive method (minimal soil work, diversity and rotations). I insist on autonomy, (people organize their time) and freewill as my double activity drags me out of the farm.
I live in a 20M2 wood house near the lake that contains all necessities (toilets, shower, kitchen, internet), and is open to the hosts. Next to it is an old fashioned but pretty cosy trailer that can host 2 to 3 persons, with electric heater. If need be, tents can be installed on the land.
I have a dog and a cat, both are nice to people and other animals, but the dog is playfull.
When i work at night (2 or 5 nights per week) i sleep when i come back, from 8 AM to 2 PM, and then go to the field in the afternoon only for few hours, so i am not able to prepare all the meals, but the kitchen is open.
Being in the center of an eco-tourism region you can find many different activities around as my double job leaves the helpers time off to discover the place. From the river Dordogne, beautiful walks, waterfalls, castles and medieval cities to the Périgord Gastronomy.
