Hello all! Welcome! Minimumstay: 3 Weeks – Gardeners, Craftsmen(&wymen) and Allrounders welcome!

We are a relatively new, open-hearted community in the southwest of France. With joy and pioneering spirit we, a good dozen residents aged between 27 and 73, create our new living space. Our organic farm, a former domain, is located on a beautiful southern slope in the Malpère hills in the Aude region. About two thirds of our land (86 hectares in total) consists of forest, which we use gently. On the other third we run a variety of organic vegetable gardens and on the farmland we have planted fruit and nut trees and prepare our fields for organic crops and pastures. Some donkeys, ponies, sheep and horses have moved in. Chickens and goats are planned. We are also interested in alternative cultivation methods such as permaculture and agroforestry which should be realized here. Also for Landart beats our heart.

You have freedom for individual and creative projects here. Culturally we offer a music-, cinema- and dance room, a diverse music and film archive, a paintring studio and participation in our community life. Our property consists of four houses, one of which we keep open for tourism. In the surroundings there is a beautiful and varied variety of nature to discover. The area is also known for its historical sights from the time of the Cathars.

We live in green and quiet nature. You have the choice whether you want to stay in a shared room or in a tent. We share the common kitchen, the sanitary facilities and in the hot seasons the reliable pool.

We can accommodate up to 4 volunteers at the same time. It would be nice if you could join us for 3 weeks or more. We speak French, English, German, Italian and some Spanish. We regularly drive to Limoux/Carcassonne where we can pick you up. From there is also a good transport network.

We live in a wonderful place and it fills us with joy to share it with others. We want to be an oasis of peace, where we explore new ways together in harmony with nature. We appreciate the cultural exchange very much! To enter into dialogue with different generations, to exchange experiences on human, professional and spiritual levels and to learn from each other. We believe that working together in healthy nature creates a good basis for joy and friendship! To see how something is created together under the work of our hands is one of the most impressive experiences of life! Every participation is always temporary, but joy creates moments of happiness and experience remains because it nourishes growth! Let us grow together!

You are very welcome. We are looking forward to a lively exchange with people from all cultures!!!

See you soon
