this summer we won't be at the farm - we will be with one of our caravans at the Camargue beach near Arles. - let me know if you want to join us as 'nanny' for the 3 kids [age 6,9,12]. There is room for one person - just bring your tolerance and love.

after summer we will be as a multi-lingual family of 5 either based near Montelimar or in a well-renovated ancient stone mill sourrounded by fields, lakes and cow pastures in a quiet [bocage] landscape called 'Libeau' originally belonging to the nearby 15th century castle 'Etrie'. We are still renovating the mill of the castle built with natural stone for making it ecologically sustainable [solar, geothermie, organic hemp insulation etc] into a home, seed bank, conference room, 'cabinet medical', health center with spa and sauna.

We provide clean bedding, sheets, blankets and pillows in a heated mobile home in winter and 4 more caravans in summer. Upon special request we have a very private suite in the main house. The hot bath is open at all times. For the garden we have work clothes and shoes [used]. 10 bicycles [aka 'push-bikes'] to go to town or other castles nearby and you can spend evenings at the lakes for fishing. the Atlantic is 1h by car. summer weekends with bbq, wine and music.
3 children aged 6boy,9boy,12girl love to meet others.
we speak French English German Japanese
our interests are bio-organic gardening, health, science, sumarah, travel stories etc. we welcome travelers who add to the collective knowlege and experience of our lives.

Help is in sharing your wonderful self with our kids, teaching them how to play and communicate with you, keeping the place clean and tidy, gardening, seed collecting and storing, landscaping, building, cooking, recycling. We promised an American Indian Navajo elder to build a Hogan for him to chant and meditate. You may also sign up for a course in seed saver networking, bio-organic gardening and ecological building. Please e-mail us for details.
ps. we need to extend the life of 8 computers and 10 bicycles .. anyone up to fiddling with that sort of hardware? [g]
