Hello, Michel and I are 54 years old, we project to work with you in our garden from October 8th to 28th.
We welcome you to help us plant 5-7 trees (almond trees and olive trees), dig the holes, carry the compost and manure in the vegetables garden, move the ground...and rebuild some traditional ston walls to support the garden levels.

In Provence we have gardens designed as "Restanques": our garden is composed of 8 small levels (terraces).

In 2-3 weeks, during our holidays from october 8th to 21/28th, we hope we will together be able to improve the ground.

During your stay, you'll help us by:
- digging holes for planting fruit trees
- carry compost and manure to fertilize the soil for next spring
- clean up areas of the garden, remove wild grass and trees, roots, rocks
- add manure and prepare the permaculture garden, and start designing it for next spring.

We live 5km away from Aix en Provence, very close to the Mount Sainte Victoire. We have one bedroom for you in our house, and two cats.

We would like to welcome 1 or 2 woofers during these 2 or 3 weeks.
You won't be working all the time, depending on how fast we work! and depending on the weather... So you'll have some free time to visit the area ! The city bus passes every 20minutes in front of the house and you can easily go to Aix en Provence for a drink or to visit the city, enjoy the wonderful Provence markets, and many more places around.

Thank you so much for telling me a bit more about you when contacting us, and we are very much looking forward to welcoming you in our lovely house !
