We're a couple of freshly graduated students (Marianne : 24yo ; Raphaël : 28yo) in fine arts. After our diploma we wanted to take a break by traveling and experiment other ways of living, more practical like self-sufficiency.
We currently live in nothern France, near Belgium. We would like to spend about 3 months in Scandinavian countries (spending about 2 weeks per farms, but we're very flexible), working in local farms and living with inhabitants.
We're looking for places where we could learn about organic growing and farming, or about any other topic (permaculture, degrowth, building...) ! We really want to be useful to you.
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
Helping with Tourists
Help with Computers / internet
We're practical persons ; we've worked on several art exhibitions, in order to install and uninstall them (painting and drilling walls, making of art works bases, etc.).
Raphaël sometimes helped a friend who is a cabinetmaker at his work by cutting, sanding and varnishing wood ; he also done some renovation work for his friend's home (making a levelling, a concrete slab and changing tiles).
During our studies we've also done some part-time work, such as cultural mediator, cashier, city guide, art teacher, sales assistant, delivery driver.
We're also comfortable with domestic chores and we can cook vegetarian or vegan food ! We also (try to) bake our own bread and we master the basics of lacto-fermentation.
In the same vein we make sustainable and biodegradable household cleaning products, like our own solid shampoo.
As art lovers we also draw, paint and do photography ; Raphaël even play music and can teach you engraving :)
Finally, we have not a lot of skills in farming and gardening but we're eager to learn, and not afraid of working hard !
