We are a young french couple who are living in the Hautes-Pyrénées, near Lannemezan.
Fabien is mountain guide, and Charlene is farmer.

We have a big garden with medicinals plants and vegetables. We are experimenting different ways to cultivate.We are always satisfied to learn various agricultural technicals. It is important for us to use all the resources that we have on the spot, plants, trees, compost, shearing, rather than to bring elements come moreover.
We sell our production to a market in small villages every week.
We have five cheeps and a cat.Sometimes, there is dunkeys in the place to eat grass.

What we ask from the helper :
The volunteer can help us 5 days a week and to take advantage of 2 free days to have a walk or rest (if he is not agree we can speak!)
The activities are diverse: mainly of the gardening, take care a few sheeps, sort out seeds and spices, make the picking of wild plants, prepare herb teas.
Generally, from Monday till Thursday we take care of the truck farming and on Fridays mornings we let us harvest for the market which takes place late in the afternoon. So it is not a problem if the days of free are the weekend.

About the accomodation :
The helper can have a private room, we have the bathroom and the kitchen in common. So if you want stay in our house we will eat every day together.
If you want to be quieter, we can lend you a mobilhome or a caravan which is directly on the ground, in this case, we shall eat together only for the lunch.

About the food :
We eat what we produce, essentially our vegetables and our plants, we eat sometimes some meat which we buy to a friend, a producer in organic farming, in brief,to eat healthily is very important for us. We also like very much cooking and having fun with new recipes, of course the volunteer can also innovate and cook as one pleases!

What is important for us is that there is a good atmosphere and that each finds itself there. For it it is important to participate in the everyday life (housework, cooking, but also to laugh, to exchange ...!)to make lighter and more pleasant the days. We can also go to have a walk or to make hikes occasionally, if it is not a moment when we have a lot of work.

We shall welcome you with enjoyment and good mood!
