Hi, we are an English speaking family, Paul, Sarah and our two children, Ben 9 and Freya 5.

We live in a traditional gascon farmhouse, surrounded by sunflower and wheat fields, the house has a very rural feel but we are only 5 minutes from the busy town of Lectoure. We have a swimming pool to cool down in during the hot days. We also live with a Beagle who is 2 years old and very energetic and our cat who is not energetic!

We are 20 minutes from the large town of Agen and 30 minutes from Auch.

We are looking for practical people who can help work in our garden cutting down bamboo, planting, weeding and internal paintwork for 5 hours per day for 5 days a week, from mid April onwards.

In July & August during the school summer holidays we also look for someone who is great with young children and has lots of energy to help entertain Ben & Freya.

We are also looking for people who are keen to be part of family life, our children are very social and love having people to ... more inside

**LATEST UPDATE** Now looking for HelpXers between now and June - sorry, no space between July and September! In the spring it's mainly work outside, with a mix of brush-cutting, weeding, pruning, general gardening tasks, with a little interior decoration.

We spend much of the year in Asia, but I am back in our beautiful 18th century farmhouse in rural Provence, at the foot of the Mont Ventoux to prepare things for summer rentals. Plenty of gardening to do throughout the year, as well as rebuilding an old stone-walled pond fed by our slightly sulphurous spring (hence the name of the farm, 'L'Eau Salée'). It will be a lovely feature once it is restored. Other major projects include renovating an ancient well. Inside the property there is some painting and general upkeep to do, when the weather is less pleasant outside (pretty rare in this part of Provence)...

We're close to the Roman town of Vaison (7km) and Malaucène (3km), so although there are no other houses in sight, all ... more inside

Here is a great chance for you to make a real difference I have 2 holiday cottages (one of which I live in) with extensive grounds that need to be brought into use after some neglect.
This is a very rural area of Brittany with great areas to walk, hike, cycle, nature and bird watch with wild boar, deer and a lake not to far away.

WE are looking for help and ideas to create a wild flower garden, re-align the hedgerow on part of the rear of the premises. The front area to be landscaped again with wild plants and we have an area at the back which we want to create a fire pit and BBQ to entertain you and our other guests.

There is also a plot which we want to use for organic vegetables and may be even a poly tunnel for tomatoes… We have 2 sheds that require moving and repairing along with some internal and external painting and wood preserving.

You will be living in the main cottage unless the Holiday let is empty, we work from home so always around and will be happy catering... more inside

Période mars, avril 2015

Depuis 3 ans, je construis une maison écologique (paille-chanvre) seule ou avec de l'aide et j’aménage petit à petit l'espace vert autour de la maison. Les travaux à l'intérieur de la maison sont toujours en cours ainsi que l'aménagement du jardin potager et l'espace vert.
Avec ma fille nous vivons dans la maison entre les pièces finies et celles pas finies. Nous partagerons ce lieu avec vous pour les repas, salle de bain... Et vous dormirez dans une caravane, avec toilette sèche à l'extérieur.
Ma fille de 14 ans a pour passion le cheval, l'équitation..., elle fait l'école à la maison, apprend l'anglais et l'espagnol. Moi, je suis Infirmière à mi-temps et j'ai plutôt oublié mon anglais et espagnol......
Nous vivons dans un endroit calme, à la campagne avec 3 chats, 2 lapins, 1 cochon d'inde, 4 poules et un coq.
Nous sommes à 1heure de route de la montagne.
Nous mangeons végétarien et biologique.

We are Nadine, Emily and Matthew, friends who all met while working in Ethiopia several years ago. We quickly discovered that we shared a similar vision: to create a beautiful space for people to learn, renew and nurture themselves. This was our motivation behind establishing a holistic, meditation and Yoga sanctuary based on ecological principlesin Chateau Mongoger in Le Loire valley, central France.

We are now starting to bring the project alive. Emily has arrived from Ethiopia last year to initiate and oversee the work that needs to be done. We are now in the second year of the project and now have full a full time french gardener and manager but we are still looking for for peropel to come and help with renovating and preparing this beautiful Chateau so that it evolves and enriches the experience our future

Hi,

-- NOBODY NEEDED BY NOW --

i am the daughter of the familly (21 and 3 little brothers) and have the project to make something nice with the permaculture idea in a part of our garden which has never been used, and in another plot of land we bought nearby.
i do not know a lot about agriculture and gardening but i am really interested in learning from you and exchange ideas!

the first and maybe bigger part of the project is cleanning the site (cut a few trees and bad grass), strengthen some dry stone walls, then plough with a cultivator the ground, prepare mounds (buttes) and begin thinking about what and how to plant!
there is also an habitation to build, this part is in gestation in my mind but i would be pleased if you share your skills about it with me.

i hope to welcome people from everywhere to make them discover our nice place, between mountains and mediterranee (15min driving)!

we do not eat 100% vegan but a lot of raw food and mainly without gluten and l... more inside
