We are a small eclectic community of of diverse individuals! "We" are - myself Saskia - I am principally a street theatre performer, puppeteer and tap dance/lindy hop teacher and I live part time with my 15 year old daughter Dixie Lu. Next door lives a lovely French young couple and slightly down the hill lives Mat and Sofi in their self build straw roundhouse (workawayers who never left ;). Other lovely folk are coming and going at various times, meaning that this is quite a dynamic place.
We're in the process of creating a (semi!) self sufficient permacultural space that will integrate a creation studio, a workshop space for different classes/retreats , and various accommodations with vegetable growing and some keeping of animals (at the moment we have 5 cats, 2 donkeys and 2 chickens!). The land is 4 hectare wild woodland and 1 hectare sloping prairie.
The help that needs to be doing is mainly building projects (traditional and non traditional methods), and woodland work (clearing, wood collection, building steps, walkways, cabins). It's more or less all outdoor work. Anyone with building / carpentry experience, or with permaculture knowledge would be especially welcome.
This autumn we are looking for preferably a couple or 2 guys to help with converting the barn. We will be building walls, using old windows ,wood and bottles ;)

We always need help with general maintenance (some strimming, veg garden chores, woodland etc), up keeping the buildings, chopping and splitting wood, some computer tasks, and building various wooden structures.
The help is varied and seasonal, and always (usually!) fun.
We have a London Double Decker Bus with accommodation upstairs and downstairs, with kitchen and wood burner, and a lovely 1960's caravan for 2 . If that's all full there is also small bell tent available. The communal toilet is a compost toilet, and there is a communal solar shower.
All the accommodation is warm, dry, and cosy!
Where we are is kind of remote, would be good to have a vehicle but definitelly not crucial.
The project is happening as it unfolds, i.e. it's improvised! We live near the village of Montbrun Bocage which is a kind of Shangri-La, there is a wonderful market on Sundays and lots of great characters live in the area, including Spanish, German, Dutch, Italian, Japanese and Thai speakers.
We are vegetarian, therefore all meals will be meat free.
