I'm Hilde, living in Biches,Burgundy region, central France. Together with my son Robin, we started a small scale permaculture project.I took a PDC with Steve Read from the Université Populaire de Permaculture in 2012. Currently we are renovating the house (using natural and recycled materials as much as possible ) and developing a garden. Robin is setting up his mushroom farm. We speak English,French, Dutch and German.

We offer a stay in the French countryside. Bedroom has 2 single beds, you may have to share the room with someone. Bathroom will be shared also. We have internet
which you can use freely. There are lots of books,and music.We eat mostly organic food and while we do eat some meat we can cater to vegetarians. If you like hiking there are
lots of cool trails and the Morvan nature reserve is nearby.
We're very close to the canal du Nivernais. Bikes are available. Nevers, the closest city, is at 40 km.
We are looking for someone who likes to garden, help out with the renovation: working with cob and reclaimed wood, installing water treatment systems, rocket stoves (we already have 2 but you really can't have enough), passive solar,...
If you play an instrument be sure to bring it with you!

Work would be 5H a day, weekend off.
We are looking forward to get to know you.
