  • Description


    I am Tif, 34, doctor in psychiatry and I live with Jed, 36, working in different spots depending on the seasons, our five months old baby, our dogs Aska and Chico, our cats and chickens. We moved, three years ago, to an old farm located in mountain in Royans. We'd like some help with our every days life at home.

    We grow our chicken from eggs to running chickens. It's amazing to see a chicken's birth.
    The dogs are nice but you'll have to proof that you are the leader otherwise, the walk can be very long ^^
    We are also slowly renovating our house !

    We like to hike around in Vercors area. We are also used to cycle with the dogs in the forest or on the road.
    There is a lot of paths around the house and some climbing area can be reach by car.
    I enjoy doing my own bread and experience new receipe I would love to teach you how to cook bread or brioche. We eat mostly organic, seasonal and local food.

    JEd enjoys paragliding when he has free time. There is a paragliding spot located 5 minutes from home.

    I already had some experiences aboard and I learned so much from those that I want to still experience it even if I am in France, travelling through people visiting us.

    * We are looking for volunteers at the end of October to help us with the timber production *
    We'd like some help with the animals when we are at work. We'd like somebody to walk the dogs around in the forrest surrounding 2 times a day and play with them.
    Aska is a husky mixed with a malamute and Chico is a one year old husky who needs to learn a lot of things, that why we are looking for people feeling comfortable with dogs.
    We also need help with the chicken hoop (feeding, cleaning).
    We'd appreciate your participation to develop a vegetable garden when the spring is beginning.
    Step by step the house is getting renovated (heating floor, dry toilets ...) in the way of a more sustainable way of living, so we may ask volunteers to help us thinking and acting those missions !
    We also count on workawayer to help in the house but as we will be sharing kitchen/bathroom etc... we consider it as task sharing as housemate, this is the same for keeping the house warm in winter, so we don't consider it as "work" more like "basics rules to live together" and of course, we'll take our part to that.
    A basic day is starting early (specially in summer) by chicken's care: to open the hoop, check food and water before breakfast. In the morning, some cleaning missions (vacuum cleaning mostly) before going for a walk with the dogs. Spare time after lunch before the second walk. At 7pm it's feeding time for the dogs and the second round into the chicken hoop to grab the eggs and check again food and water dispenser. And then it's finally diner time for humans! That's how it usually works but as we sometimes have renovation missions, JEd could ask your help for something very different !

  • Hébergement


    Our home is located in St Jean en Royans but we live far from the city's accomadations, in winter you need a car for the everyday's life and in summer if you have a bike and good legs you would appreciate the nice mountain roads. We can host you in a double bedroom. We use water from the rain, so quick showers are appreciate. It's an isolated way of living, workawayer have to know that.
