  • Description

    Description

    Hello! we are 6 people (adults between 25 and 52 years old, and one child 6 years old), we all live in a big house in the country close to the French Alps, near Chasselay, Isère.

    Anne is a hiking guide and kinesiologist.
    Hugo is a electronics engineer and takes care of a few sheep - and his sheepdog Ottis
    Their dynamic son Florimond is living with us full time.
    Frederic is a sound engineer/film director who loves cooking and gardening. He is taking massage courses at the moment.
    Perrine is working around ecological education and is a singer/songwriter too.
    Benoit is a former industrial engineer looking for opportunities in agriculture. He is now living in the camper van he just built, beside the house.

    We have a few animals : 1 dog, 4 cats and many sheep. And also chickens for delicious eggs!

    We are not a commercial farm but we try to be self-sufficient for vegetables and, in the future, fruits 😃. That's a lot of work in the garden! We use the permaculture as much as possible and are always learning/experimenting new possibilities. We all have separate jobs/activities. In the evening we share meals and share the work in the garden, house maintenance and chores. So it's not a total community life, nor a mere shared-rent, it's something in between 😃

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We live in a good place to hike in the hills, close to the mountains Vercors.
    We can exchange about hiking, kinesiology, organic gardening, breeding sheep, bicycle, building...

    It's far from town, but there is often someone to go to St Marcellin, or even sometimes Grenoble, and we can drive with you to the mountains for a hike together.

  • Aide

    Aide

    All year long, we need help with organic gardening: we grow potatoes, zucchinis, carrots, tomatoes, beans, onions, cabbages, leeks, squashes, turnips, radishes, parsnip, ... DIY garden improvements and weeding is often necessary too. Of course, when time is ripe, there is harvesting of vegetables and fruits to do. We try to make preserves when too much food has to be harvested.

    The help in the garden is our main need, it may be tiring and it needs a little motivation to dirty your hands 😀

    Other kind of help:

    Help with the sheep and fencing for those motivated 😃

    Help for general maintenance of the house as well as help with daily cleaning,
    Even if you are not the cook of the day, it's nice to give some help for cooking,

    And sometimes, babysitting our son Florimond when we need to work. He is 6 years old. One of his big interests is music, so someone who could accompany him in some (really beginning) practice would be great. He begins to have an ear for English, and it's nice if he can develop language skills with you.

    Maybe 1-2 collective mornings of wood gathering and cutting for the fireplace.

    And if you have any special skills let us know!

    NB : from mid-spring to end summer, depending on the temperature, we prefer to work outside early in the morning and at the end of the afternoon

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    We live in a big home (on the picture) with 6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms. We have only 2 toilets... but a dry toilets are in the making... HELP needed for organising construction of these
    The workawayer will have his own room. Kitchens, bathrooms, salon are collective.
    For one who'd want to play music, we have a small electrical keyboard and a guitar.

    We like to cook good and organic food, mostly vegetarian, but not exclusively. We take turns in preparing the meals. We eat all together. We will offer the food to the workawayer. If she or he wants to cook, it will be welcome. We will be happy to learn new recipes!

    Workawayers are also expected to take part in usual little household chores like cleaning and cooking, like each housemate does. For us it seems natural.
