We (Phil and Helen) have lived on our 6 hectare permaculture smallholding in a very quiet village in the middle of Brittany for the last 25 years.
We were self sufficient for a large part of the time whilst seeing our family grow up and even becoming grandparents recently.Helen also runs a local cafe,shop,bar.
At the farm we still have chickens, sheep, a dog, cats and now and then a pig for the freezer.
Part of our land is a forest garden alongside a large polytunnel, whilst the rest is wetland, there is also a huge oak tree on the property
Learning is a journey into the unknown!
We will always try our best to let people work on the projects that interest them the most-
either at the smallholding or the renovation in the village, or a mixture of the two.
At the smallholding we are currently:
Cutting bracken for mulch
Stacking fire wood
Reroofing a roundhouse
Dry stone walling.
At the bar renovation:
Tilling and plumbing
Painting and clean up.
Helpers work from 9h00 until around midday, then after a long lunch break another couple of hours in the afternoon, 5 days a week, in exchange for being well fed and accomodation in farmhouse or cabin in the garden etc.
You will find plenty of opportunities to learn new skills and share experiences.
