We live in a beautiful old farmhouse with some 2 ha of land. Our eco-renovation (reed-beds, use of old lime techniques, eco-insulation, wood heating) is 98% completed. We are now focusing on the garden and improving out door dinning and hammock area.

Our village Montbrun-Bocage, located 1hr from Toulouse, 4hr from Barcelona is renowned for its alternative organic market and offers a range of activities of interests from a wood-oven bakery, plenty of yoga classes, five rhythm dancing, beautiful cycle rides, Indian concerts etc. In the foothills of the Pyrenees, our small scale organic garden is calling out for help to expand. We are flexible about what you do and have plenty of projects from gardening/landscaping, canning and transformation, organizing storage etc.

We ask helpers for 4 to 5 hrs work a day, have bikes you can borrow and would welcome you to join us on outings to dance, watch films etc.

We practice meditation daily, host a monthly mindfulness day base on Thich Nhant Hanh's teachings and would be happy to welcome you to your home. We are a vegetarian household.

Maya (our 15 year old), Patrick (a part-time journalist/communications lecturer)and Natacha (a part-time environmentalist) look forward to sharing meals, work and ideas with you. We speak fluent English and French and basic Spanish.

We are looking for a couple preferably to help with gardening and some painting in April, May and/or early June.

We look forward to hearing from you.
Natacha, Patrick and Maya
