    Hello! We are a family loving people and living in downtown

    Alexandre, 7 and Samuel, 5, dynamic children, enjoying the live with unschooling approach in the nature
    And I, Marie, an safety engineer and studing to become a prison chaplain and a comedian

    We are familiar with hosting thanks to couchsurfing and aupair.

    We have 2 projects on fire:
    - Renew a house in Mons (400m from home) with eco and second hand materials
    - Move our unschooling project in a new place, probably next to edible forest

    We need help especially to renew a house. If you have skills in woodwork, plumbing is really welcome but it's not necessary. There are many things to do as renewing the walls (repointing and painting), help to move stuff, babysitting, etc.
