  • Description


    We are a little group of friends living in different houses of a small village in South West of France. Together, we grow organic vegetables and we keep goats and hens. We also adopted recently 2 donkeys. We maintain a plot of 2 hectares.
    We love yoga, music, ecology, sharing of fraternal values. For us, it's important to cultivate peace and respect in relationships.
    We've been working together for 10 years on our land, and we are happy today to have the possibility to host one or a couple of workawayers in order to enrich our cultural exchanges, improve our english, stimulate our creativity, and receive help in our work in the garden.
    Most of us are vegetarian, so we prefer to host vegetarian workawayers. For allergies reasons, we don't host smokers.
