Help needed from April 2019, I wish develop this riverside land to optimise growth of a variety of vegetables and fruits as a knowledge and skills swap centre for volunteers and a place where Volunteers can meet many other volunteers and discuss destinations. Any skill or knowledge you swap with the group that we agree counts as part of your volunteering time. That skill or knowledge you offer maybe key board based. More the merrier, you all have some knowledge or skill to swap, I want find out what that is, come stay as my guest, rest after your travels, dont work the day you arrive or the next full day, just help cook dinner, then after two nights if you wish stay longer you can start doing some volunteering or leave having shared some stories with us and made us a little wiser. There will be a big emphasis on after work interesting activities, maybe yoga, hikes, trips to local village, driving to another much bigger river 10 minutes away, reading, cooking lessons, board and card games, movie nights, full moon party, anything you suggest we will consider if we can implement it. The more there is interesting and fun to do after hours, the longer the volunteer will stay.
Nov 17 we cleared most land in photos from march 18 work will be 2 hours in morning hoeing and truning over land, a break then a light two hours organising land, developing living area planting. then afternoon free for ourselves, some trips in car. you can invite your friends also.

Organic riverside small (3500m2) land, half of it fenced off so good for children and pets, and barn stacked with food and drinking water from town tap. with basic services, heating water with dark tubs in Mediterranean sun camp fire wood, Nov 17 all riverside land scrub been cleared being cleared ready for March 18 digging out small roots, rotovating, and planted in wild flowers, green vegetable, tomatoes, beans, herbs, medicinal plants, salads and crop planting. We will be developing the off grid plumbing and living areas, electrics, Fun stuff, (we have a solar panel already you can charge you phone on daily basis by directly plugging into it and we have a friendly local who also allows us charge up our devices in his garage every second day) Handymen and I are there from March 18 for months. No teepees currently, just barn and tents , you can help us develop them! join us from then stay as long or as little as you like, come and go, I can pick up from local town bus stop, only 1.60 from Beziers gare Routier to SGDF, work would be average 20 hours a week for food and accommodation, not Sunday. Vegetarians and meat eaters, we cook separately. I also hope we can swap skills and experiences and learn from each other. I have been living off grid on barges in SW London for 12 years so i have some experience. (you can also volunteer there) Be prepared that all your experiences in past might be called on if you are the most experienced in a field. though no skills are expected just a willing cooperative attitude. I have a car so will be driving volunteers to local sights and the biggest river in the region, the ORB is only 10 minutes drive away, we can go there every second day for all afternoon some evenings. Please email me or whatsapp me to suggest arrival dates. Welcome, these are life long skills and knowledge I will set you up with, come and learn by doing, I would like to learn from you too. :)
