Thank you for checking out our listing - Updated; 22 - March – 2021
We have often appreciated the help of workaway people as you can see from the feedback.
UPDATE - This year we moved to a biger land to receive start our eco project,
We hope to be able to invite people again soon.
North west Dordoin France, the plan this year is to achieve more sustainably and off grid as much as possible, dry comost toilets, regenerative agreculture, solar panels etc, posibly build small eco dwellings, and continue with the eco projects we started 10 years ago at the previous place, that is growing by hand human scale heritage/ancient grain/cereal, fruit and veg including harvest storage and cooking, compote/jam, fermented food, sourdough bread, design and plant a perennial edible garden, record results photos videos etc.
Normaly we host 2 people, a couple or 2 friends suits the situation best,
All the activitys require people with experience or ability to do manual phisical chores in the garden or diy on the house.
This can be a good educational experience learning about human/family scale ecological food production and other diy, without chemicals or tractors.
Note : in the gardens there are different activities according to the season :
Winter and Spring we get the land ready for seed planting,
March, April and May is the main ground preparation and seed planting time,
Summer and Autumn is weeding, watering, harvest and storage time.
FOOD - At this place there is a healthy balanced vegetarian/vegan diet only, meaning NO - meat, fish, eggs, drugs, alcohol smoking etc.
I prefer to accept people for this project who normally eat vegetarian/vegan food. I see this way of life as being essential for environmental sustainability, mental emotional and spiritual balance.
COOKING - we usually cook the food for everyone and we usually ask for help to prepare the food and clean up after dinner, the kitchen is well-equiped. If you need to prep your own food or you have a special diet please let us know before you arrive here so we can talk about it and see if it is possible.
ABOUT US - We are straight-forward people that you can talk to, working together on the eco garden project, i am an experienced gardener/farmer builder etc. engaged voluntarily by choice in gardening farming, bhakti yoga, mantra meditation, eco building, healthy lifestyles, vegetarian vegan diet, Permaculture, self sufficiency, natural farming-Fukuoka style, sustainability, regenerative agriculture, i am semi retired spiritually inclined and long in the tooth.

People who come here can learn; about self-sufficiency, eco gardening, growing and cooking healthy organic vegi food, and many other things associated with living in a positive peaceful spiritual way. many books to read.
We would appreciate the help of 2 veggie people, a couple or 2 friends for 1 to 4 weeks . (Minimum Age 21.)
It's good if there are 2 people as there is no entertainment or city type night life in this small village, it's quite isolated, basic country life.
We often need help with the eco/organic gardens, sustainable regenerative agriculture project, fixing up the house, food storage herb collection, jam making, diy maintenance etc. There's always various things to do, we like sharing our skills, teaching people how to do things and learning from others.
Please ask us if you need more information,
