  • Descripción



    I’m Clement, 34 years old. French, speak english and spanish, Homo sapiens sapiens in wild.
    Ten years ago, I was backpacker and volunteer too, in America Latina.

    Today, after several years, this beautiful place (near Nancy, in Lorraine) is ready to host backpackers, willing to help and live a particular and collective experience. That’s why you read this annonce now.

    Since the beginning, exchanges, meetings and co-working are the elements which create this place : you are invited to take part to this adventure ! Two types of work will be possible : on the cabin and in the gardening.


    This project of woodcabin « self build », in a orchard, exists since 2010 and I began an activity of maraicher (organic and bio culture of course) since one year.

    Differents equipments are already set up in the woodcabin (dry toilets, wood kitchen, solar electricity, tank for rainwater, solar dry plants,…) and also in the garden (fences, design, fruit trees, aromatic place…). As it’s a long time project, I need support to continue to make this place more autonomous and alive with people from all over the world.

    Just two questions
    Kind of competence for building or gardening or novice ?
    What do you think you look for in this experience ?

    What I expect :
    - to improve my english and all foreign languages,
    - to travel with other persons around the world, in my place ;)
    - to meet great people,
    - ...

    A bientôt, Hasta pronto, See you soon ...
