  • Description


    We are a French couple who live in Normandy, Nadia and Jean Marc. Our large house is in the countryside. It was built in 1676. We have a large garden with lots of animals :1 goat, 8 sheep, chickens and a small dog: Jano. We are basket makers! We are looking for people to help us in the garden, for the animals, for the maintenance, to carry out various crafts and constructions. We love to share our daily life and our kitchen very much, so if you love to cook you are welcome! We are involved in a process of sharing, respect for the environment, and local development.

    Our ideal workaway volunteer would be a person with whom we could chat, laugh and have a good time around a table. It would also be someone dynamic, ready to help us and want to discover our passions and our region.
