We are Mo and David. We have retired from a very busy life running a spiritual centre in Kent England. We moved to this beautiful area in South West France in November 2007. We are both artists, David works in wood mostly although he is also fully skilled in building and maintenance. David and Mo built a kiln last summer and Mo is returning to making ceramics after a long absence. Volunteers would be welcome to use the pottery and art studio in their spare time..

We have about four and half hectars (about 12 acres) of land, which consists of woodland and meadows, which is cut once a year by a farmer, and a rose garden which surrounds the house. we also have a thriving vegetable garden.

We have an organic vegetable and fruit garden. We are very conscious of the necessity of being organic, but have had to use a limited amount of weed sprays on the ornamental garden.

We are ten minutes from the nearest town, in a very rural area, we have bikes and lots of quiet countryside for walking in.

Our helpers will be expected to work for five hours a day, David and I usually take turns in planning and cooking meals, input from our helpers would be very welcome. We have two bedrooms in the house for our helpers, one with an en suite bathroom the other with a shower room. Both rooms are very comfortable. We would like our helpers to be competent in using garden maintenance machinery, this is quite important.

Note: The Photos show the garden as it is in May-June, when its at its best!
