Welcome !

I moved in 2012 to a nice piece of land in the mi ddle of the forest in the Vosges, with endless possibility for entousiastic helpers who want to give their ideas, their help.

Cook by trade and passionate by ecobuilding,
I traveled with helpx few years ago for about 4 years around the world and also beeing an host for about 15 years. It is a pleasure to host many volunteers from all around the world.

From 2012, I create, develop and run a small campsite "La clairière du Verbamont" (check out my website).
La clairière du verbamont is nestled in the heart of the big forest of Darney (Vosges) surrounded by a beautiful forest with loads, a paradise for Nature lovers.

My 2 sons 8 and 6 years old are also part time with me growing in this nice environnement.

There is for example for you to do with a big garden driven mainly in permaculture principles, vegetable transformation, fencing , campsite construction, dutch translation, small solar project, self sufficiency principles, low tech technology process, help for maintenance of campsite, mowing, taking care of animals, wood stacking, small construction project, preserving, jam making, bread making, ..

Also for helper who want to stay longer than 3 weeks, We can work together on a low tech project / self sufficient project (washing machine with human power, solar dryer, solar cooker, movable compost toilets, small windmill. These special project need helpers who have a basic knowledge of handworking and stay long enough to develop and finish the project.

I'm not vegetarian but I can cater for. I will be happy to share my knowledge on ecobuilding, construction, cooking, mushroom picking, permaculture gardening, wood working, bakery, wild plants, carpentry, animals caring, ...

Accomodation in your separate bedroom or caravan. There is many things to do around check out my website, I can also provide bicycle.
I prefer helpers who have an interest in my lifestyle.
I speak english and spanish and of course french which is my native language.
I ask you to work 4 hours /day + 1 day off. I prefer longer stay (after agreement of both) , 2 week is a minimum stay.

I can pick you up in Contrexeville train station or -closer in Darney bus station.
If you plan to come by car, check the location on my website.

See you soon !!
