    Description

    We are Sonia and John, we live here in a very beautiful area of the Tarn, with two cats a dog, and 7 chickens.
    I was a practising Homeopath and John is an artist. When we came to France we spent spent much time renovating this corps de ferme.
    There are 1.6 hectares of land, most of which is used by a neighbouring organic farmer. This year he has sown some wheat.
    We started growing organic vegetables in Devon nearly 30 years ago and we are still learning what to do. The books on permaculture and no dig gardening and all those principles we like to apply.
    So after 16 years of being here, we are looking for some helpers help with:

    An almost abandoned vegetable garden, to clear it and sow flower seeds,
    Clearing brambles
    Strimming and mowing the grass.

    There is a new but smaller vegetable garden,, in it's 2nd year and there we need lanting seed potatoes, onions etc
    Sowing vegetable and flower seeds.

    We don't have a greenhouse and are open to your ideas and expertise too.
    we have a spare room in our house and welcome you to share it with us.


    Realmont is our nearest town, it's a thriving market town with everything that you would need. Nearby there are other towns worth a visit. Albi, Castres, Lautrec.

    We also have a car that you can use.

    The Tarn is a varied region which supports a wide range of plants and bird-life. From where we are -- to the west lie the Gaillac vineyards, to the east the Sidobre national park with its granite resources and La Montagne Noire, to the north the Tarn Gorge (and the spectacular road-bridge at Millau), and to the south the foothills of the Pyrenees and many of the Cathar castles.

    There are many sites in the Tarn which figure prominently in Cathar history (Albi, Castres, Lombers, Ste Juliane near Roquecourbe to name but a few) and there are many royal bastides, such as Realmont, which were established to revive the area after the devastating suppression of the Cathars and their supporters.

    Other bastides are hill-top villages of great interest and beauty such as Cordes-sur-Ciel, Penne and Puycelsi.

    The latin-based Occitan language developed in the South of France and it is still spoken in the Tarn in a variety of dialects.

    The land around Albi and Lautrec suited the cultivation of pastel - a plant from which the blue dye known as woad was derived - and this temporarily brought great wealth to the area in the C15th and C16th.
