  • Description


    Hello ! We are a couple of artists, with 2 children, living near the forest of Dabo, east of France.

    We just move in, and in order for us and the kids to have a place to play, the land needs to be clear. We're looking for help for cleaning the trees, modeling paths, stairs and palisades with things from the woods.

    You'll be welcome to learn from us depending of our activities : painting, carving, filming, and exploring with us the forest around. I organize woodcarving classes and retreats, and the project is installing sculptures on the land. The landscapes are beautiful here, wild and fun.
    We love mushroom hunting, cooking.
    We love to share and show you around.
