AS SOON AS POSSIBLE PLEASE!!!!

URGENT HELP REQUIRED!!!

We have agreed the sale of our house and need some help packing over the next 6 to 8 weeks.

The work will be mostly general sorting, packing and cleaning in both the house and outbuildings.

We look forward to welcoming you - plenty of food (and wine!) supplied.

We can accommodate friends in single beds in one room, or a couple in a double bed, whichever you prefer. Of course we will provide ample food for working Helpxers!

We are an English couple living in a lovely peaceful area of the Loire Valley, just outside a village. We moved to France from England in December 2008. Our house is a 19th century maison de maitre and we also have a gite next door.

Organic Status: Beyond Organic/Regenerative

Hi there, Tobias here. Where? The Bearn? A well-kept secret in the South West of France. A beautiful and diverse region with its own timezone - 15 minutes behind the rest of France. It has everything that you need including food, wine AOCs, music, culture, rivers, mountains, surf.

Here a one-man-band (with riffs as an agricultural scientist/viticulturist/inventing/building type), is slowly setting up an organic/permaculture inspired project on a jewel of a piece of land (see fotos - the diamond shape). The soil (a clay sandy mix), aspect, exposition and shelter are all beautiful - sadly the land had been neglected for 4 years so there is lots to do. Just entering the third year. As yet I cannot live on the land, except for camping. Helpers will live with me in the centre of the local town (10KM away) - so a great work/life situation.

Planned work:

UPDATE - This summer the dome is now in action. The vineyard has been planted. The foundations for the verandah are ... more inside

Hello,

I'm traveling by inland river barge through Europe, especially France, Belgium and Holland. Most of the time in France and 250 KM around Paris. The barge is an original Dutch built peniche and made for the old French channels. I still transport cargo and I am the third generation of a shipper family from both sides of my parents. I live and work alone on the barge sometimes accompanied by my girlfriend.

There is a simple separate -little- room (see first photo..)for guests in the front of the barge which is not suite. (no sanitaire, but there is a chemical toilet and lavabo) Also a heating system, fridge/freezer and micro-wave.

The work to do depends on the person, maybe some cleaning, housekeeping work, shopping and cooking? ? ? And serving the aperitif of the skipper of course at 18h00 exactly..LOL.

My intention is to make contact with other people and have an exchange of cultures.

TAKE CARE : In --OCTOBER-- I WILL BY IN HOLLAND / AMSTERDAM. After I think... more inside
