  • Descrição


    Aloha, I'm Mark and I invite you to come and discover our project:
    We are 100% off-grid now and enjopying it. We are growing most of our own food ( it feels good ).

    It is still quite basic here at the farm and i am looking for independent people, with the key word being autonomie.
    I belive autonomous people can create comunity together. That does not mean we dont need one another in our exchanges. I just means we are not dependent upon one another.!

    Le Barraquet (in the old local language ) mean's "The Grean Bean", how cool is that for our project.!
    We work towards this as a coherent ecological space. With the impostance on the sharing knowledge, creating social ties, one of solidarity, cultural and festive ties in our local community. The area of Puivert is special and full of like minded people from many cultures. Here at the bean we not only grow food for ourself but our excess goes to the local community. We also do lights for shows, compost toilet rental and are p)resent in many local festivities from the may-poll dancto concerts and theatre.
    I belive i live in paradise here. And heaven and hell is a state of consciousness in the here and now, its what we make it. Like in the Huna philosophies " The world is what you think it is, and Energy goes where you focus your attention. And now qunatum physics is catching to the ancient teachings.

    We are lucky to be in this preserved place, in the heart of the Pyrenees Audoises (Cathar country).
    We live on just over 5,6 hec with several buildings. The whole farm was abandoned for over 30 years and theres lots of work to do, thats why we need your help..

    I want to invite and welcome you to this beautiful place and assiste us with our enthusiastic project.
    All the best
    Mark and young Sirius.

    A Quick Note:
    *The shower has been disconected as we are working on that building. Their are possibilyts for washing (we have an austraien bush shower) and there is always hot water available fromour solar cooker when the sun shines.
    * Im sorry to annonce that we wont be taking people with dogs after our second bad experience. (cats, monkeys, donkeys and goldfish welcome :-) .

    Aloha, je m"apelle Mark et je vous invite a venir et devouvrir notre project:

    Un lieu écologique, de partage de connaissance, créateur de lien social, un lieu solidaire, culturel et festif
    Est un lieu préservé, au cœur des Pyrénées Audoises. Un terrain de 6 hec et des bâtiments, abandonnés depuis 30 ans, revivent et accueillent le superbe et ambitieux projet de Mark et jeune Sirius.

Help with my son who is 12 years old, a happy soul ! And various tasks on the farm periodically ....

    The Key Word the Discribes the Farm is "Autonomy"
    ( i feel that autonomus people can come together to creat community)
    We are all individuel cells in a greater growing expanding living organism called humanity.!

La rénovation des divers bâtiments ( le plus part des toitures sont a terre ). L'installation des panneaux solaire et un group électrogène qui va rouler à l’huile de friture (recycler).

  • Acomodação


    Mobile home or Camping at the farm:
    At the moment we have installed four mobile homes. One is my space, another my sisters and there are two for visitors and a little cosy caravan. So we can accomodated cofortably 8 to 10 people at a time. And we have plenty of space for tentes. Mose of the spaces have there own cooking facilitys so people can have there own space/independence when needed.
    We provide all foods, with one main meal a day all together (often more) and ask each person to do there share of cooking and cleaning. If you do have special dietery needs please let us know in advance.We have stopped taking Vegans as we dont produce enough varietie of products to suit there needs.
    We have no main's shower at the moment and i do have an austrailien bush shower. Water can be heated up on the solar cooker and by putting watering cans in the greenhouse to warm up in the daytime until the new solar shower can be built..! We also use a compost toilet.
    So if you have any knowledge about making an "efficient" shower , please come and share..!

    Mobil home ou camping à la ferme:
    En ce moment, nous avons installé quatre maisons mobiles. L'un est mon espace, un autre est a ma soeur et il y en a deux pour les visiteurs.
    Nous avons beaucoup d'espace pour les tentes.
    Nous fournissons des repas complets (souvent végétariens ) et demandons à chaque personne de faire sa part de cuisine et de nettoyage (au fur et à mesure), si vous avez des besoins spéciaux en matière de diététique, veuillez nous en informer à l'avance.
    Nous n'avons pas de douche en ce moment et nous mettons des arrosoirs dans la serre pour se réchauffer pendant la journée jusqu'à ce que la nouvelle douche solaire puisse être construite ..! Nous utilisons également des toilettes à compost.
    Donc, si vous avez des connaissances sur la réalisation d'une douche "efficace", venez et partagez!
