SOS - We need people immediately - to organise a job lot of industrial shelving! A couple of strong friends would be ideal...

And for general farm tasks.

One person who loves to clean and organise to put this place back into order after too many too busy seasons... would be great too

Generally we ask for a three week stay with an option to stay longer by mutual agreement. But in this instance if you could come now (21 June or in the next few days) one or two intense weeks would work too.

Our place is a beautiful renaissance chateau built of locally fired brick with stone details. It is set in the countryside overlooking a potager (vegetable garden) with antique fruit trees, surrounded by boxwood hedges and century old oak trees, a bamboo grove, a developing orchard, deciduous woodlands, and winding boxwood pathways.

In the field adjacent to the chateau grounds the project of creating a large scale seasonally changing labyrinthine walk was planted in 2006. The hedges,... more inside

Bonjour!

We are Dalila (French), Pete (English), Emilie (8 1/2 years old) and Sidney (5 1/2 years old). Our place is an old chateau set in 29 acres of meadow, in the Pyrenees mountains, 1h30 south of Toulouse.

We'd love you to help us with:
- Splitting wood for heating next winter
- Stacking wood
- Tidying up the vegetable patch (weeding, turning soil, etc...)
- Clearing up the barn
- Painting windows


Looking for practical and hard-working people, who enjoy physical work and being outdoors. We need people who can chainsaw and split wood, as this will be the main bulk of help we require... You should be fairly independent and comfortable around children as our kids will love interacting with you!

About us:
We've finished renovating the interior of the chateau in 2009, and with sustainability in mind, installed solar panels for hot water, photovoltaic panels for electricity, rain water collection, composting. We're using our own wood for cooking and heating in th... more inside

Hello,

I'm Cyrille, and with my little dog, we are looking for two helpers to help us on our little farm.
We have a vegetable garden, some fruits trees, some chickens, some rabbits, a pond with frogs and fishs surrounded by a lot of bamboos.
We are surrounded by cows and prairies.
We are nestling in the foothills of the Pyrenees, 15km from Saint-Gaudens, 80km from Toulouse, and 7km from Aspet, the begining of the mountains,
I work in Toulouse from mondays to wednesdays, so I will be away from the house from 6am to 7pm during those 3 days. Then you will be probably by yourself, except if I have some roomates.
Then you have to be a minimum handy and autonomous.
You will have the choice to take your 2 free days during this period or not. It's up to you.

Helpers will be accomodated in one of the two spare bedrooms I have in my house, or in a caravan or even in a tent. Depend of the number of roomates and helpers at that time.

Main job will be to take care of my ... more inside

Bonjour.

Je m’appelle Yoann, j’ai 31 ans et mon projet se situe dans le Gers à la sortie d’un petit village en pleine campagne.

Je parle français et j’ai quelques notions d’espagnol mais je ne maîtrise pas l’anglais.

Je suis donc un particulier qui réhabilité une vieille ferme gasconnes en utilisant les techniques ancienne.

Différents travaux sont au programme : piquage de murs, enduit à la chaux, travaux de charpente ainsi que la pose de tomettes sur chappe etc...

Il y’a aussi un grand jardin à entretenir et à diversifier, ainsi qu’un potager en permaculture sol vivant d’une centaine de m². Il devrait donc y’a avoir des journées de cueillette et de cuisine! Vous y’avait un accès libre pour votre consommation.

Il est possible que je fasse quelques heures de maraichage à l’extérieur de chez moi, je ne serai donc pas forcément la en permanence.

Les travaux seront donc prévu en fonction de vos connaissances, intérêt et motivation ainsi que les chantiers déjà en cou... more inside
