Hello, Retired architect/amateur painter involved in restoration project SW France, looking for help in the Pyrenees & in Scotland (for the construction of a sauna)to share work & creative leisure for a few weeks in early or late summer 2016.
Our area in France near the river Garonne in the Pyrenean foothills is rich in wildlife, its inheritance of architecture, history, mountaineering and cycling to name but a few.

The house, a traditional, large farmhouse, has been ecologically restored by France, a now-retired architect, combining traditional methods and materials with modern science. Colombage, the old French half-timbered construction, has been adapted for external cladding and internally the walls have been lined with straw, clay and lime, which provide breathability and good insulation. Hot water and heating are partially provided by solar panels.
We are now trying to convert part of one of the outbuildings into a small annexe and a roof of one of the farm buildings ne... more inside

Hello future helpers,

We are a German couple in our early 60s in great shape and especially active. It has been almost 35 years since we established our farm in South Corsica, close to Sartène, in the valley of Ortolo. We speak German, French and English.
We have a varied farm: a sheep breeding, poultry and a big garden filled with vegetables. We sell the main part of our production on the local markets.

The main activities depend on the season:
- From December till July, our main tasks are the milking sheep and the producing cheese.
- From March to October are dedicated for the preparation and the maintenance of the garden (sowing, planting, plowing) and the harvest of vegetables.
- From October till December we cut wood and take care of the new born lambs.
- All year round we raise chickens (meat and eggs).

The missions may evolve according to the skills and the interests of the helpers for example:
- Taking care animals (feeding, preparing the sheds…),
- ... more inside

im an english woman with a five year old son, living in a beautiful isolated valley in the south of france. we are off grid with solar electricity and spring piped water. we have 8 hectares of mostly woodland, and have chickens, cats, dog, a sheep and two donkeys. i moved here 3 years ago with my french partner with the intention to set up a ferme pedagogique (learning farm) centered around medicinal herbs and renewable energy. however now that the relationship has ended we are heading in new directions. although he is happy to help with work on the property which we still co-own, he has a job so cant do as much as he'd like. which is why i'm look ing for some help.

I am looking for help with building two extensions to my small house for extra space and light and to create a bathroom and kitchen (it's all in one room at the moment). and also to add on to the compost toilet. i am interested in eco / green building and my philosophy is to build as simply and cheaply as possible wit... more inside

We are an english couple who have been living in France for nearly twenty years, with our two sons aged 15 and 11. We run an organic vineyard producing red and rose wines at the property. Most of the work we do is manual and we do need help from time to time, particularly at harvest time, which is usually mid to late september.

We enjoy having people from different backgrounds and countries to stay with us here, adding new experiences for us and our children.

There is always stuff to do in the vegetable garden and around the house, and cooking etc. Guests are more than welcome to cook should they want to, as it makes a great (ex)change.
We also have a small flock of sheep which started as only 3 but is now eleven as we have found no acceptable means of limiting the numbers....

We can offer accommodation and meals to anybody who wants to come and help us, in exchange for 4 or 5 hours work a day, on average.

Our farm in SW France is devoted to our rarebreed pigs. We have a herd of Berkshires; Middle Whites; Oxford Sandy & Blacks and a lovely Tamworth. They all live and farrow outside. We feed them twice a day with local petit lait (whey) and our own cereals.

We also sell our pork to a wide range of customers in our community - we have a farm shop but mainly attend the local market to sell.

Fun hard work but rewarding. We have many on going projects from building new paddocks for our pigs and general maintenance work around the farm. Gardening is on the back burner and we would dearly love someone to come and give our farm that little bit of TLC.
