** The following in english, section en français au bas de la page, hablamos español, ni uzas esperanton.

We are starting a fruit tree nursery and cooperative farm in a small and beautiful village between the sea and mountains of Gaspesie (Gaspe peninsula, Quebec). The project takes place on a 14 hectares land we own in Mont-Louis (between Sainte-Anne-des-Monts and Gaspe city). We live there surrounded by beautiful mountains, friends and neighbours. We are seeking help for the gardens, tree nursery, chicken coop and on building projects such as barn improvement, greenhouses, kitchen, helpers' camping area and work on the houses. Your experience and creativity can be put to good use and we are very open to your suggestions. Be aware that the project is just starting so we don't have much producing yet, just a lot of space! Although we are not rich, we have sufficient tools and resources to work steadily and efficiently.

In exchange for your help, we offer a room in the tipis, a caravan or camping accommodation and can also provide food or other services, depending on your needs and help availability. We are flexible on schedules and prefer long-term stays over short-term. Also be aware that we need intimate family and friends time apart from work and may not be available to hang out with you often. We expect our guests to be mostly autonomous in their personal activities and transportation.

We have ecological values and are very tolerant and respectful. We equally appreciate our visitors' effort towards respect and non-violence.
We would like to hear your insight of Permaculture and similar ideas about growing healthy communities.

*** Français

Nous sommes un voisinage paysan qui démarre plusieurs projets de vie sur une belle et grande terre située à Mont-Louis en Gaspésie. Il y a la pépinière de fruitiers rustiques, les jardins biologiques, la boulangerie, la cuisine, un petit poulailler et la construction / rénovation de bâtiments. Nous avons besoin d'aide pour ces projets et pouvons vous accueillir dans un tipi, dans une caravane ou au camping rustique (incluant eau, toilette et cuisine d'été). Nous cherchons des gens autonomes (qui ont des idées, savent ce qui les intéresse, sont capables de se divertir et de rencontrer des gens par eux-mêmes). Nous sommes nous-mêmes très flexibles, mais également très occupés pendant l'été. Nous travaillons généralement avec l'approche de la permaculture. Écrivez-nous pour plus de détail!
