Hi,

We just bought a former farm in Burgundy, with 2 hectares surrounded by fields and woods!

We have a lot of works to do on one of the outhouses, a former barn that we want to renovate to be an extension of the main house, which we want to be a passive house.

A big part of the 2 hectares are devoted to our poney (and his future friend), and we will organize it as a paddock paradise. The rest will be our garden, where we are beginning to create an organic vegetable garden and plant trees and medicinal plants following the principles of permaculture.

Lisa : I'm a veterinarian, working mainly with horses, and also dogs and cats. I use a lot phythotherapy, aromatherapy and homeopathy in my work, and I'm also interested in micronutrition, behaviour study... In my free time I like reading a lot about various things, writing, photography, spending time in nature, learning languages...

Greg : I'm a real estate agent, I'm very sociable, I like sports, reading and learning... more inside

We are a couple living in a village with a garden 40 kms north from Paris.
We have discovered helpx through our daughter (age 20) who has been travelling in Ireland since a few months and loves her helper experiences.
She said we could enjoy becoming hosts.

We'd like to welcome helpers for two to three weeks in June.
This is going to be our fist experience and I hope you enjoy staying with us.
We would like help in the garden to weed, prune and plant. End of spring will also be the period when we want to repaint the doors and shutters.
The garden is organically maintained and has been for 15 years. It is a garden, not a farm, it is located in the middle of the village.The place is quiet and lovely.
We welcome either one person or a couple. There is a bedroom and a shower room (the shower room is occasionally shared when our granddaughters come for the week-end (age 6 and 7). Wifi included, please bring your devices.

Hello!

I am nearly an old lady but of course can't believe it and still think that I am young! That is to say that age is not important to me as I usually get on well with easy going people.

I live in a very small village in a vast area of forests. I love animals, I am vegetarian and of course love nature ...

There is a spare room and a couch in a loiving room a little apart from the living space but the prettiest part of the house where to sleep is the nice attic.
I need help .... to renovate the house: painting walls, cleaning etc......and help in the garden

I havetwo cats and a big white dog.

I can help you learning French.

As my place is so quiet! far from everything with no shops, no bars, no public transport, I think that one week or maybe two is enough!

I am used to travelling and welcoming people from all the world and most of the time enjoy it.

We prefer to speak French as not all of us speak English. We're very happy to help those who enjoy practising their French conversation, however rudimentary. Written communication is fine in English if it's easier.

We live on 2.5 hectares of meadow and woodland in the hills around the beautiful mountain of Bugarach.

We have quite a low impact way of life with compost/dry toilets, 12v renewable power and a vegetable garden that provided most of our food. The mains water supply is very restricted but we do have a beautiful roll-top firebath in the beginnings of a bathroom (another project) that overlooks the mountains. .

We live quite close to/amongst nature & spend a lot of time outside. We have a cabin for the family & there is a cabin (small), caravan (large) & tents for friends & HelpXers. We also have a levelled clearing that has been used for Yurts & Tipis - so if you have one bring it along!

Our projects are mainly centred around ecological construction, including... more inside

We have a big garden with medicinals plants and vegetables. We are experimenting different ways to cultivate.We are always satisfied to learn various agricultural technicals.
