    About us

    Hello, we are a french couple without kids, lea and ronan ( 31 & 33 ) who travelled during many years before setting down here in Aveyron at Saint parthem. During our travel, we learned and exchanged with differents peoples from over the world. After doing that and received a lot we decided to slow down activities travels for another life.
    Our jobs before that and for lea, was pastry chef for me and she is waitress. She works away during the week. Me, i am working as seasonnal workers in winter. You are welcome to ask anything during your visit.

    The project

    We didn't know what to do exactly but one thing came to our mind, it was to live freely as before during these last years. So we moved in the country side. Bought a land for living with the earth. Now we are preparing to set up an agroecology farm with the objective to promote biodiversity in the farm while producing some food from durable perennials polycultures plants.

    Here are some details and visions
    - Promoting perennials plants and food productions from them
    - Building polycultures with annuals and perennials, the purpose of that.. Producing more calories than quantities
    - Encouraging the biodiversity while joining it during natures works
    - Using less mechanical materials and petrolum
    - Trying to cook with perennials plants and polycultures, polycultures can be in the plate and in the field

    We are debutant. So we have so much to learn and to practices. We hope people to come here for to share their knowledge and help at the farm with different task. We also want to discuss from different things.

    The place

    Here is a small village called saint parthem ( 300 tenants ) at about 15km from decazeville ( 6000 tenants ), 45 km from rodez (50000), and 2 hours from Toulouse. There is no supermarket in the village, just a bar. The closest market is at 5 to 10 minutes. There are buses with calling them in advance. However we are pleases to drive you whenever it's possible. This is a very beautiful village classed patrimonial village. There is a river passing south of the village at 1 minute walk. The river is little cold but when hot summer arrive , it is a great deal. Wild is a advantage here, with forest taking place around the village. Many trails are available and we encourage people to visit. Also we can make a trip together

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    The exchange is principally based on how you want to share your thought. We do not ask people to be with us every time . The shares and exchanges must to come naturally as you want to talk. We are honest in saying that a part of this exchange is from the help at the farm you are giving. After the rest depend on our motivation to talk, to smile, to laught. If you are tired, or need to be alone, we totally understand and will not disturb you.

    We are not expert and experienced to teach you anything, but we have some ideas and knowledgeswe can share with you as you you can bring to us. Ronan love to talk about science and botanic. Lea is more about sensibility and philosophy. But both together are very alarmed by climatic change.

    We hope to have help on gardening, building, cooking, photograhy, computer.. Any skill are welcomed.
    We intend to set up a greenhouse, diging a pond, building an eco toilet, and so on...

    How many hours ?

    We just ask to help about 4 hours per day minimum. We prefer to organize the day in advance, let you work the complete hours directly and let you have the rest of your day. But if you wand to process differently we are ok with that. Exemple if you cook, the time you cook will be part of the hours. We are very smooth about this. We will never ask you to do more but we ask you at least to respect the minimum hours work. If you need to report some hours later or to complete all in one day and have two days to go, so on... About day off, If in case you stay two weeks witch is the maximum we ask at the moment, you will have two days whenever you want.

    When we work ?

    The time we work goes from early morning in summer, early automne, hot spring, late spring, around 6 a clock to 12H lunch. And some late afternoon. You can choose hours during these times.
    When it is cold and winter or not hot days, we work a normal day from 9. to 17. for exemple.
