Hello helpers from all over the world
We welcome you into our new starting project.
We are renovating a 6000m2 propriety to create an organic farmstay based on self-suffeciency, ecofriendly, and permaculture concepts.
Situated 1 hour from Lyon and St Etienne, we can pick you up in Roanne or St Jodard train station.
We are surrounded by nature and 5 min walk from the river Loire and 20 min from the Chateau de la Roche.
Our activity is split between Bee-keeping, taking care of the orchards & veggie garden and preserving fruits (making jams, juice …)
We also have birds and rabbits we love.
Just married couple and ex-travellers, we like meeting people from other countries and sharing different languages and cultures together.
Sometimes in our spare time we go fishing, kayaking, hiking, swimming and skiing. When the weather is bad, we enjoy playing table games with our friends
We will give you up to 5 hours work/day to match your knowledge and experience. - This is varied and hopefully fun... It includes gardening, preserving fruits, harvesting and many other things. If there is something even like cooking that you are good at or want to do please let me know!
You may be expected to have responsibility for jobs such as feeding the birds and watering the garden.
It's ok if you have a lot to learn!
Accommodation: comfortable beds and hot shower for all!
Internet access? Yes!
Food: Mostly organic food directly from the garden fresh and preserved. At times you might have to cook for yourself.
Stay up to 3 days and longer if its working well for all of us.
