We have been living in the Languedoc, in the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains, for nearly five years now. With the help of family and volunteers, we've been working to transform the property into an organic smallholding with small-scale holiday accommodation, and to move towards a sustainable way of living.

With two-and-a-half hectares of woodland, meadow, orchards and vegetable garden, as well as sheep, chickens, cats and guinea-pigs, there is always plenty to do.

We welcome volunteers from March until October, staying for 2 - 3 weeks. In the summer season we have a small number of paying guests, and really appreciate volunteer help to look after them, and to look after the grounds, the animals and the garden. Out of high season, there is project work to do - small-scale construction, decorating, gardening, woodland management and maintenance.

We welcome people with practical skills and ideas to undertake new projects, but out of season, enthusiasm and commitment are mo... more inside

Our project aims at developping a self-resilient place in the middle of the Pyrenees mountain chain (South France) and practicing Ecology on a daily basis.

Here we learn, share, aware, respect, accompany, shape and communicate on a very simple basis : "Minimize your impact on this planet and maximise general happiness". This is one of the reason the place is vegan.

If you want to share (or already share) this vision, you are more than welcome.

Our work consist in :
1/ Regenerating the soil together with providing food to the residents ; we base our work on permanent agro-forestry cycles (I am not talking of permaculture but it is);
2/ Restauring an old house, partly troglodyte (carpentery, alternative way of energy production...) to create a workshop area where hosting events;
3/ Building light habitats (tiny house, roulotte, geodesic domo, tree houses);
4/ Developing medicinal herbs gardening;
5/ Planning the animal refuge project;
6/ Planning the refugees' housing... more inside

Eco farming and tourism. !!!


The summer season is coming to an end and we will be fully back on the job while the next 3 months will be a lot more comfortable to do physical work then in the heat of the summer. For the coming period we will be doing building work, maintenance all over the place (spent a few weeks to get the treehouse ready for the winter season) and there are many other little projects in and outside, installing a solar hotwater system on the main building, clearing land and landscaping, preparation work for planting finally after all the years of pioneering we found the time to start a vegetable garden needs a bit of care too.

Building wise, our first project is to finish the roof on one of our buildings, any enthusiastic helpers are more than welcome...!!! There will be carpentry, stonework ( masonry ) and more technical jobs.
If you prefer work on the land....don’t be shy ;-) there is plenty of it!!

We're a few people living in the Pyrenees mountains (south of france near mediterannee sea), a place isolated from road and town.

Our main goal is to restore the potential of the old little village La Coume to allow people to live there.

We run different projects: organic gardening, raising animals (chickens, goats, donkeys, horses), rebuilding ruins with old methods, making our own energy.

I am looking for people to help me 6 hours per days 4 days a week. I expect autonomus people who are not afraid to work hard and walk.
People need to be able to reach us by foot,work independently, cook for everyone, do a bit of housekeeping.
You must be aware that it's not a holiday center...

In exchange I will be happy to give them food, housing, activities happening around in the valley, trekking and exchange knowledge. You will be lodged in a commune house with a dry toilet outside.


Most of work is hard and outside: building with stones, electric fences, clean the fields, ... more inside
