We are a french couple (37 and 44), with a 5 years old girl. We speak french and english. We try to live in an eco-friendly way of live. We have few animals : 2 cats and 2 horses

We are living, for 8 years, close to the nice village of Argenton les Vallees, in an old hostel (17th century) on an ancient way to St-Jacques of Compostelle. This house is nice but was very cold and wet and we often are working for improving it with natural and local materials and alternative techniques (straw insulation, rocket-stove, dry toilets...).

Beside this works, we are working for a little association promoting a simple and sustainable way of life, including the food, houselife and "how to ecofriendly move in the countryside" topics. Then we have a lot of knowlegde to share, mainly on ecological gardening and on saving energy.

I would be happy to host a helper from 20 august to the end of august.
I live in an old but rénovanted house in a nice village. I have a garden in front and behind my house, which need to be clean. There is also some creation to do, like make a separation in hazelnut branches and other things like that. I have also painting to do ( windows, garden staffs). It will be also time to make jam from blackberries, and to collect fruits in gardens.
It's more funny to work with somebody than alone.
I like also to show you the nice surrounding of my area, do cycling or walking tours, meet my friends with you and go to Poitiers, which is a very nice university town.
I travel a lot ( so some months of a year I'm abroad) and I have contacts with foreign students in Poitiers. I like the

**** URGENT - NEED HELPX *****


Hello, my name is Dominique and I live in Les Herbiers, it's a town about 15,000 people, 1 hour from Nantes, 1 hour from the sea (les Sables d'Olonne). I have 3 children about 24, 22, 20, they are sometimes home, but they are students in Paris
I'm a teacher during the week, and sometimes during the end of the week I cook "Crêpes" in the market.
We have a house in the center of Les Herbiers, with a big garden.
We love meet people and take good time together. My friends say about our house that is like " L'Auberge Espagnole".You could go to the Puy du Fou, who is 15 minutes from les Herbiers.

So I would need help for the following things :

Garden : - Mowing the lawn
- Cleaning the flowerbeds

House : - Painting the kitchen
- Painting the bathroom

Barn : - Tidying up

I hope we'll have good time together.
Dominique
