We are five adults and 1 child of 4 years renovating an old farm. We are living here since the summer 2018. We are working on various projects: ecological renovation, gardening (permaculture), growing mushrooms, setting up a little nursery garden for fruits trees, setting up a food forest, organizing and networking around education (we are currently not sending our child to school), midwifery and the exploration of links between babies and mothers, collapsologie, human rights etc.
We speak french, german, dutch and english.
Help with Eco Projects
DIY and building projects
We are a rather multicultural group. Originally from the border region between Belgium, Netherlands and Germany, we are now living in France and enjoying very much the culture here.
We are living in a beautiful environment with lots of hiking possibilities. There are rivers to swim. Depending on Corona, there is usually lots of things going on the cultural plan. The region here is a funny mixture of lots of space, lots of connection of people living here, a very welcoming environment, and the continuity of (old) local structures.
We could use a hand or two on different issues. The most pressing issues are currently creating living spaces and preparing the ground for what is to come.
During the summer 2021 we will work on remaking a roof and making openings for windows and doors. We have lots of experience that we can share. And we are curious to learn from what others want to share.
This host offers a language exchange
The hebergement is rather improvised. We have different options that we need to explore together with the person in question and his needs. The main accomodation is a part of the main building with a toilet pot and a cooking facility.
We are also busy setting up a place where several people can stay together in the old 'Bergerie'. We are about to create openings for the windows. There will also be a cooking facility.
It depends also on what time-period someone would be interested and the number of people.
Depending on the season and on the project we are working on, we will have a mixture of food from our garden and food from local producers. We will organize depending on the preferences, skills and available options who is going to cook. We will partly all eat together, partly in sub-groups (also because we need this for our little family to have calm get-togethers).
Don't make fun of me, but we have a sauna - which is, according to me, the best remedy for kind of everything :-)
