La ferme du Val miesse
It's a small farm located 17 km from Lisieux, in a very quiet place.
I love traveling and collecting The different techniques i learned around The world.
I use the principals of permaculture for 2 years in my farm, since my first permaculture design course.
I'm looking for volunteers who love nature and want to learn about gardening, ecco construction using clay and wood and other local materials.
I can provide shelter but i need participation for food, during summer there is a lot of vegetables coming from the garden. I do have a bungalow (Only a room) for the people who want privacy.

small sheep farm with lots of chickens and three dogs who stay in the house, quite a caotic lifestyle. We have two bedrooms available, one single and one double,but I think two extra people would be enough, it is not a big house. 1km from local village with shops, bar etc. 2 hours st malo, 45mins le mans, 15 mins Alencon. Wellies needed especially at the moment.
help would be great dog walking, some renovation, at some times of the year lambing, fencing, sheep care, cutting firewood, gardening, preparing the vegetable garden etc.
no accommodation available until after Christmas

Vic and Heather are retired now. We have lived in Europe for many years but have settled in France. We have a large garden and even larger dog; an Irish Wolfhound. Come January its the time to cut down some wood and stack it for the future. Last October Vic had a new hip put in so he is still slowly recovering. If you can use a chain saw and stack up the logs that would be a great help for us. You can use our car if you have a license.
Musician? You are welcome to bring your instrument along and join in for a jam.

JANUARY 2012 UPDATE -------

I (Franois-Xavier, 38) am on my own on the farm right now and due to my own business schedule slightly overwhelmed with daily chores. These include:

feeding a small number of chickens and rabbits. (and clean their mess, though this is probably a once-only task for the duration of your stay here) This is the only chore which is truly vital and requires regularity.
remove ivy from tree trunks. (there are several hundreds of apple trees here, though of course not all are infested)
prune fruit trees (apple and pear) and bushes (redcurrant, blackcurrant). Some heavy pruning is required for most apple trees, it seems.

I am therefore looking for a helper to stay with me for the whole month of January. (provided we both get on after the initial 5-day trial period)

What I expect from you:

I am a pretty hard worker in my own field so I expect you to have a fair amount of work ethic. Im not insensitive to hippism and antimaterialistic counterc... more inside
