    We're looking for workaways who want to experience this wonderful project with us. We are learning from ground zero in terms of the land and farming so we'd love you to learn it all with us.
    We are currenlty working on making kid style camp, crafting workshops.... this will involve design, inspiration, both inside and outside.

    We have 12 hectares of land, much of which is forest but there is a gorgeous courtyard that needs much pruning and inspiration. The vegetable garden is a constant and its always great to have help with it.

    We'll serve all meals Monday-Friday : ( lunch can be flexible) We will leave your weekends free for you to explore. However we are very flexible, so we can mix these days and time up, some days doing less, or more... etc..
    We recommend no less than 1 week and to see how it goes from there.. Singles or couples.
