Dear Helpers,

We are a young (in spirit and mind) French-Argentinian-International couple, Annette and Alé, that after backpacking, moving and living all around the world for many years, are living now in France, in a farm at the heart of the "Parc Naturel du MARAIS POITEVIN" (Grand Site de France), at the edge of La Banche river.

Please, in order to get an appropriate answer, read the entire description and when you contact us please answer to all the questions we ask at the end.

Our place is near to La Rochelle, Ile de Re, Atlantic sea side...

Eight years ago, we bought a XVI century old farm, to renovate it, and we are still working on it, in order to propose BandB with full accessibility.

Our goal is to reach a self-sufficient and sustainable life style, and to share our way of life with helpers and friends. We believe this is our way to make a better world.

We own several kinds of poultry, such as ducks, geese, hens, roosters and chickens, a little flock of sh... more inside

...UPDATE... We have adequate help for the moment, but are particularly looking for a couple to help us out throughout December and over Christmas and New Year. Please note that we can only accommodate a couple in December, as we have limited accommodation available.

We are a Simon and Suzanne, a British couple running holiday accommodation in the Pyrenees from a large property with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. In our fourteen years here we have welcomed holidaymakers from all over the world and introduced them to our lovely area, and many have returned to visit us several times. Our two children are now in their 20s and no longer live here.

In our 5 hectares of grounds we keep geese, ducks and chickens for eggs and/or meat. Completing the menagerie are two dogs and two cats.

Outside the main summer season, we would like volunteers to stay for a minimum of two weeks, but this period can be extended if both parties are happy with the arrangement. There w... more inside

Hello everyone,

We are located in Trémel in Côtes d'Armor, in the middle of nowhere. Our closest neighbors are a herd of cows !!! But we have a lot of visits, especially in the summer, between HelpX, trainees, scouts, friends, etc ...

Five years ago, I decided to live the society as I conceived it, instead of constantly criticizing it. So I left my previous job and bought the farm where I currently live. Since then, I have set up solidarity projects:
2015: ? Establishment of the Grouped Habitat Tifolk
? Participation in the Swiss Association "Pumpipumpe" (network of neighbors sharing)
? Establishment of a "Insects Edible" (since in "stand by" since it does not comply with French legislation
? Beginning of the project "Renovation of the studio"
2016: ? Setting up a food garden, a shared garden and a self-service garden (Les Incroyables Edibles)
? Creation of a new drink based on Ginger concentrate
? My first beekeeping, with the acquisition of a hive (to start). We use t... more inside

Aloha everyone, I am Mark! AT THE MOMENT we are looking for people to help with our on-going Permaculture Design:
(Please read profile full so you know what you are getting yourself into, thank you ! )

Five years ago we got our hands on an old run down farm (from around 1780ish) with 16 acres of land, of which 4/5th is usable, the rest is good for the planting of trees.

I currently live here in my mobile home on a full time basis with my six year old son Sirius who stays with us every other week. Also living here full time is Roman who helps take care of the thirtyodd sheep, and Rich who is working in the village but helps when he can.
We have just acquired four beautiful red chickens who are soon to be of egg laying age and a cat by the name of Shere Khan, the hunter! (but super friendly)
All the buildings need renovating and we have put priority into growing food to feed everyone who comes to help.
There is plenty of accomodation with more coming soon (inchalla). We a... more inside
