We are a young french couple who are living in the Hautes-Pyrénées, near Lannemezan.
Fabien is mountain guide, and Charlene is farmer.

We have a big garden with medicinals plants and vegetables. We are experimenting different ways to cultivate. We are always satisfied to learn various agricultural technicals. It is important for us to use all the resources that we have on the spot, plants, trees, compost, shearing, rather than to bring elements from outside.
We sell our production with two market by week so it's lot of work!
We have five cheeps, five chickens and two cats.Sometimes, there is dunkeys in the place to eat grass.

The activities are diverse: mainly of the gardening(weeding,ground work,seedling,plant and transplant), take care a few sheeps, sort out seeds and spices, make the picking of wild plants, prepare herb teas and prepare the market.
Generally we work the week and you can take you week end free to visit or what you want.

About the accomodation :
The helper can stay in differents places, we have a caravan and a flat.

About the food :
We eat what we produce, essentially our vegetables and our plants, we eat sometimes some meat which we buy to a friend, a producer in organic farming, in brief,to eat healthily is very important for us. We also like very much cooking and having fun with new recipes, of course the volunteer can also innovate and cook as one pleases!

What is important for us is a good atmosphere and that each finds itself there. For it, it is important to participate in the everyday life (housework, cooking, but also to laugh, to exchange ...!)to make lighter and more pleasant the days. We can also go to have a walk or to make hikes occasionally, if it is not a moment when we have a lot of work.

We are looking for someone for the month of october to learn with us how the farm is working during one or two weeks. After that, to take care of the farm (animals and vegetables) during 10 days because we are going out.

We shall welcome you with enjoyment and good mood!
