Looking for animal-loving, outdoors-type, hard working, handy people,. ;-) In september 2016 I bought a small property 'in the middle of nowhere' that needs a lot of love and attention (not to mention work) so it can become an eco-friendly, clean, warm and beautiful natural place!

The project of our association is to develop a community ecofarm in the Tarn mountains. We settled there 4 1/2 years ago, in this piece of paradise oriented south with an amazing view on the Black Mountain and the Pyrenees. Since then we develop vegetable gardens, orchards and edible forest-gardens in cooperation with Nature. The design of the place is done according to permaculture principles. If you are interested in permaculture, natural building, wild plants, music, dance, Nature and the simple pleasure of living, we certainly will have a lot to share!

Le projet de notre association est de développer un écolieu à vocation de collectif dans la moyenne montagne tarnaise. Nous sommes installés depuis 4 ans et demi sur ce petit bout de paradis, orienté au sud avec une vue splendide sur la Montagne Noire et les Pyrénées. Ici, nous développons des jardins et des vergers/ forêt comestible en coopération avec la Nature, et l'aménagement du lieu se fait selon les principes de la perma... more inside

After 6 years of building and work on our land we have moved into our eco/self build stone buildings! We want to thank all the various Helpxers who have helped us and kept us thinking positively and shared our project.
We are now doing smaller finishing projects including building a green roof garden'shed'! We are also continuing to manage our woodland and preparing firewood for next winter's heating.
So we are looking for,'up for it' practical helpers to share our tasks and experience our lifestyle.... aid us with all the jobs in the gardens,and some house sitting.
A driving license is also useful and a willingness to try out some French!

There is a nice old house in a fantastic area in the southwest of France, that needs a lot renovation now through the summer. If you can help by doing a bit of interior work, cleanup or renovation please contact us.

Gardening, animal care, wood and construction work,... and all kind o outdoor jobs.

To go further with our project, we would need people who are used to the outdoor and physical jobs.
Also mechanical and building skills would be very welcome :)

A fantastic site, a crazy project, animals in every corner and two eccentrics in search of an improbable conversion. Here's what you'll find in the middle of the ruins of a medieval castle and its outbuildings.
We left Britanny to the Hautes-Pyrénées three years ago, to begin this life project as ambitious as exciting. With our garden and animals, we try to develop an educational farm, as well as a asoociation to save the ruins of the chateau!

Located 450m above sea level in the Pyrenean foothills, our little corner of paradise requires numerous works of all kinds to regain its former glory and to adapt to future projects: land clearing and building, logging, preservation of stone walls, development of livestock buildings and pla... more inside
