  • Description


    We are a "young" family : me Marie (36), Olivier (38), and little Noham (24/02/2020).
    We would like both to exchange culture, meet nice people and spend time with our little sun (son) baby sitting. We used to renovate our old rocky house in an ecologic way, since mid 2018.
    There is always projects to build : We finished the 2nd and the 3th floor It's ok, ...and we plan to renovate the 1st floor, for another appartment.
    We are still gardening in the Organic way with the biodiversity, so "work" is still in progress...
    Our animals to care (so there are in supplement of the local biodiversity !) are 1 independent and lovely cat (Ninchat), 6 (or seven sometimes) chikens, 2 indians dukes...and one futur donkey called Canisse.

    Our little village counts around 100 inhabitants on a hillside (the Loue valley, famous from trout fishing and kayaking), in a nice bucolic and lively valley.
    So we choose to live there, in a old rocky house that we renovate by ourself with eco products, with a ochard, a vegetable garden, a piece of wood and a grazing land.
    Olivier and me are working in particular ecological survey, we are both specialists in bat's survey, we are nature lover and worker in general. Marie is also a botanist, and work for a natural reserve.

    We join Workaway Net to find someone nice and responsible to help us in nursing, baby sitting. Noham is a curious little boy who love to meet nice people, love to sing, love to play music, love to laugh with...and us also we love all of those things !
    If you want to help us also to build rocky stairs, rochy wall, new chicken house, to maintain the animals fences, take care of the animals, to help in gardening, pickings and conservating plants fruits and vegetables : and there is always things to do by hands !

    You can help us in baby sitting, some days or evenings and nights, especially if we are working outside some week ends in bat conservation survey. (Maybe if you want to discover bat's ecology, we can bring you with one of us sometines !). Don't worry, the have an official nurse on the current weeks, and... our neighbours are also able to help if needed !

    Also we can host workawayer that are ok to help us in the vegetable garden (organic, lively) - we have the project to build the 18 m2 greenhouse -, or in the ochard (still work to cut and trim or harvest, depend on the season), and to take care of the animals (animal feeding, fence consolidating, changing litter).
    We have also the project to build a traditional bread hoven, the new house for the donkey... Tell us, there is always something interesting to build and maintain about 'organic' living !
