Like a "farmhouse museum" : Over 60 helpers from all continents and 17 countries appeared in 6 years to pay a one-week-visit to this most charming and romantic half timber compound from 1722.
The antik real wood furniture in all rooms will give you the impression to take part in a time voyage.
Almost 300 years old the compound is quietly situated at the calm edge of a hamlet of some 300 souls.
Main building completely restorated in traditional style. Romantically renovated kitchen with additional wood stove. Significantly reduced consumption of fossil resources by a bio mass based central heating system (pellets) and a seldomly used car. No TV ;-)

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...

Ten years ago, we bought a XVI century old farm, to renovate it, and we are still working on it, in order to propose BnB 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 sheep,... more inside

Need help in September / October /November ... to prepare a new vegetable garden !!
I am a retired and energetic lady, living in a bucolic and old house recently renovated, overlooking a stream , situated in a natural conservation area of forested Monts du Lyonnais.
I worked as horse riding instructor and scuba diving instructor. I like discovering new countries or simply enjoying nature by camping, hiking, kayaking (lately in wonderful Greenland) or cycling
I did a lot of work by myself on this property both in masonry and for the land. Recently a Canadian volunteer taught me the organic permaculture vegetable garden. Currently even if this vegetable garden is small, I can still transmit my knowledge .
I like working with Helpers, talking about what to do or my knowledge of plants (medicinal and culinary) or yoga and of course about your country, your experiences during your trip, improve language learning, music, exchange culinary specialties and all topics that motiv... more inside

Please get in touch if you have some free time. Thanks.

# Helpers welcome from september 29th! #

We are living in a former 18th century farmhouse in the countryside 40 minutes by train north of Strasburg, 50 min. to Karlsruhe or Baden-Baden in Germany. The house is surrounded by a large garden in a picturesque alsatian village below the Vogesian mountains. We have reformed it, using traditionnal and organic material. We would appreciate help - 4hours/day - in the garden (mostly organic) i.e. mowing the grass, trimming the hedges, picking the fruit, helping tending the vegetable and flower garden etc, and some light maintenance work in- and outside the house, like painting shutters, according to the season. We ourselves travelled a lot around the world for many years; Now, Klaus enjoys gardening and music - there is a piano in the house; Valerie likes cooking, especially using the garden ressources, and all kind of needlework. We can communicate in french, german, english, italian and japanese. The next railway station, Soultz-sous-For... more inside

We are now looking for HelpXers from mid-November onwards.

We are Ron and Judi and we have lived in Northern Brittany for over 13 years and shared the last 11 or so of these with our alpacas! We have been joined from time to time by fantastic helpers who have helped us make life at La Grand-Mere even more wonderful!

We always have lots of outdoor work, which at the moment is helping with the clearing of fallen trees, strimming, hedge cutting, constructing a small log and tractor shed and replacing paddock fencing. Later in the season there will be lots of leaf blowing and clearing.
We also have lots of tree work if you have the skills!
Our old bread oven too awaits some loving attention!

Our work can be quite physical so we need strong, energetic, enthusiastic helpers and we would prefer couples rather than singles at the moment.

The focus of our life here is our animals, a small herd of alpacas, a couple of peacocks, chickens, cats and a large flock of doves! For us... more inside
