This is a former silk farm in the foothills of the Cevennes in the South of France, we are not a farm or business, but our aims are to restore the land and live as environmentally friendly as possible. There are sweet chestnut, green oak, arbutus and mulberry trees. Water is from our own spring, we have mains electricity but are planning some solar energy projects. We also need help on the land, stone walling, clearing of undergrowth, cutting and collecting wood for heating (evergreen oak), constructing paths, repairing fallen terrace walls, clearing stream and rock pools, planting new trees, cultivating organic vegetable garden, and many other projects depending on your skills, interests and experience you require.
