Organic Status: certified organic and biodynamic vineyard & farm

HARVEST 2016

Unfortunately we do not have any availability for harvest for this year. We will be looking for volunteers for the spring at the beginning of next year.

----------

We are an organic and biodynamic vineyard and farm in a beautiful part of south west France.We are open to volunteers looking for a shorter experience of say a week.

The tasks are interesting and I will always try be involved with you to explain, and of course you can ask me lots of questions about wine and organic winegrowing. Some days we will be busy more than normal but you'll be compensated with extra time off when it allows.

When there's no vineyard or winery work, there may be some things we can do in the vegetable garden or maintenance things like painting, or weeding.

We do lunch and dinner together the days we work. We provide you with cereals, coffee/tea, bread and jam for breakfast on your own.
During the week, we provide you with your meals. On the weekend, it will be up to you... more inside

NOW NEED HELPERS FROM END JULY.
HELP WITH GARDENING, ANIMALS, COMMUNITY PROJECT, VARNISHING AND CARPENTRY

Two helpers who were coming in July/August have now changed their plans so I now need help from the end of July onwards.

I would like some help with varnishing my wooden house and some small carpentry projects.

Then as always I need help to keep my lovely garden and vegetable patch in order.

Also, some help with our community project, mainly painting benches and railings in our village but also help in watering the newly planted flower beds in the village square.

I live in a recently constructed small wooden ecological house in the heart of a small friendly village 3km from the small town of Castillonnes. Small is beautiful is my philosophy!

I am looking for helpers who will be attracted to my small but lovely little bit of paradise and who wish to contribute not only to my own garden and house but also to the small village community in which I live.
