We are a Small family composed of Myself, Paul 36 years old, my wife Cécile 28 coming from Belgium, and our 2 daughters Maëlys & Cléophée 3 years olds and 4 month. We have leave bruxelles, and living now in britanny since 3 years in the old family property. Its a large property deep into the campaign, with a farm and wood around. I have decided to come live here, to take care of this land and the wood. I am considering myself as the guardian of this beautiful part of nature. I havent any specific project, but lots of different ^^... First of all i have a large vegetable garden of 500m2, that take lot of my time. I try to make it productive, but also pretty nice. Its fully organics, and without labour. I also take care of the wood, we would like to build fence and shelter to get some sheeps. I would love to renovate a house to create a polyvalent room to welcome activity. Actually, we are building some dry toilet etc... And we are also building a Montessori school at farm with my wife, (but not on the same place), where we will certainly need also some help to improve the place (make a better and more children safe shelter for chicken etc..)
DIY and building projects
Babysitting and creative play
The place would be loved, by people who like forest, nature and quiet campaign. Its a really relaxing place, far from any city, where you can see stars during night and be wake up by birds sings. Not sure how could i describe what cultural exchange i can offer, except to be myself. The cultural life of our commune, isent hudge, but there is always a concert in a bar, or myself playing into the improvising theater group ;-) But you need a car to go move on those place around 10-15min in car from our home. Personnaly in general i like to stay at home, between, my garden and my job of graphic designer - illustrator, i am already pretty satisfy and busy. But for sure my wife and our neighboor would always be happy to take an opportunity to going out at night and drive you if necessary.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
I am looking mainly for help in my vegetable garden. But i could need help also in a variety of task, like building fence for animals, even help for kid could be a possibility, as it could give us more time for working in garden or else.
The helped need depend also a lot of the season and the project we are working on. In winter could be prunning tree, or build somehting etc..
In general task where i require help are physical, and require some strengh, but i invite you to discuss with us of the possibility, in function of season and your desire/capacity.
