  • Description


    Hello my Name is Max I grow up in a little farm in Limousin, a really green and wild place of France with my mum, my stepfather and my sisters.
    We had a great garden, worked the earth with horses, cut our wood for the winter, built and restored part of our house and barn, drink water from the local source and try to live with the less impact on I environment.

    My mum has a Shiastu degree and used to work with it, in plus of all the farm work, a really active woman! But In 2005 our lifes took a big change has my mum had a really bad horse accident, she is now handicap.
    Today each of us is trying to make his own live without living my Mum alone.

    She is still really really active and such a strong woman who make the most of her day even if it’s hard for her! She can take care of her self and live on her own, we have in plus two neighbours that came to help her during the week. She love having people around to share her knowledge on gardening (alternative, permaculture, etc.) /horse/health etc and enjoy having company.
    She is English and would teach you or help improve your English if you wish so.

    We are looking for travellers that want to get close to nature and learn alternative way of living.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    My Mum would be more than glade to teach you gardening, English, or even so Shiastu, you will learn from the people helping my mum that are both really good at gardening and wood work.
    But just by living in our village you will learn a lot has it’s a little community of people trying to live an other way and where everyone is helping his neighbour. Don’t be shy and go towards people with a smile.
