Hello candidate helpx'ers,

“All Life is made of Stardust” art and permaculture community project is founded by Karen (52) and Ronny (51). We are creating a resilient home for a small group of people willing and able to experience different ways of life.

Situated in the hills of the Volvestre the property consists of 7.5 ha of field and forest, a small pond and 2500 m² fruit and vegetable garden.

The past few years life for us has been a real challenge on a personal level but now good health is regained. New ideas and inspiration, many plans for the future in which people looking to make a difference can play a role, for a limited period or, if living according to the “laws” of nature appeals to you even for a longer time.

In the past half year we have visited several community projects in order to understand how people can function together and we learned a great deal that we want to bring into practice.

We are currently looking for volunteers to help us tur... more inside

We are a couple living in a village with a garden 40 kms north from Paris.
We have discovered helpx through our daughter (age 22) who has been travelling in Ireland for a few months and loved her helper experiences.
She said we could enjoy becoming hosts.

We'd like to welcome helpers as from mid August.
I hope you enjoy staying with us.
We would like help in the garden to weed, prune and plant and do some painting or other tasks in the house.
The garden is organically maintained and has been for 15 years. It is a garden, not a farm, it is located in the middle of the village.The place is quiet and lovely.
We welcome either one person or a couple. There is a bedroom and a shower room (the shower room is occasionally shared when our granddaughters come for the week-end (age 9 and 10). Wifi included, please bring your devices.
We include the food although we'd like to share the preparation of the meals with you. We'd prepare half the meals and either you'd prepare the oth... more inside

Currently looking for help for the end of September /beginning of October for 1-2 weeks.

I work a lot in the summer so need a little extra help walking our dogs and keeping on top of the house and garden. Must be animal lovers, our dogs are very good - we also have 2 cats and 2 hens. All our animals are rescued. Our house is small, but welcoming. The spare bed is situated on the mezzanine above the living room.

I live near the sea and there is a beautiful lake walking distance from the house where you can also swim. Spain is just 20 minutes by car. We really are very lucky here as we seem to have everything - sun, sea, lakes, mountains....

I am vegan so this is a meat-free household, but i`m happy to share some very tasty recipes.

Pretty easy-going and have a good sense of humor. It`s not the place for people looking to get drunk every night, although moderation is fine.

I try to find a good balance between getting help and giving you enough free time to explore and e... more inside

I`m Nadege, French, fluent English.
I love traveling (been to a few countries in Europe, USA, Canada, Cuba, Asia, Indonesia, West Indies...) and meeting new people, discovering new cultures.
I also love photography and music (have taken photos of quite a few famous musicians).
I live in a big house with garden in Toulouse suburbs with little dog Oscar aged 15 months.
A few helpers stayed here - some for a few months - who did a very good job both in the house and garden.
I am presently (September 2019) looking for someone to help with garden and house maintenance, repairs, cooking and maybe a bit of house-dog sitting. Would also need a small fence done at some point if/when someone has the ability to do it.
Work 4 hours x 5 days - two weeks minimum.
I`ve got 2 free rooms. Couples welcome.
Please get in touch if you have some free time. Thanks.

Background : studied sociology, worked in charity/Health organization for many years. Still working.

# 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

in 2017 i bought a house in the french département called haute marne, which is part of the greater region of Grand Est. the house came with a huge garden, divided into one third flowers, one third vegetables and the last third a small orchard. i would be very pleased to have a helping hand now and then to be able to take better care of garden, house and barn. i am not looking for slaves, but for skilled people who are interested in sharing their knowledge working together with me for 4 hours a day, 5 days a week. i do own 3 dogs, so dog-unfriendly people please refrain from asking. i am an long term vegetarian and will not be spending money on meat. And: this is a non-smoking household. i do speak english, french and german fluently as i grew up in luxembourg. the location is in a very small and rather remote (next to no public transport) village. i could fetch helpers either at the parking lot of exit 8.1 of highway A 31 or at langres train station. helpers have their own room wit... more inside

Hi everyone,

We are a family of 4, Sebastien and Laurence, with our two young children, Louise who is 11, and Morgan who is 7 years old. We also house 2 cats and sometime sheep!
We live on Oleron Island, and our house is a 5 minute bikeride (or 10 minute walk) from the coast and nearest village, Saint Denis d'Oleron. From the beach and harbour, you can see the famous Fort Boyard and La Rochelle. We live in the countryside, but have several bikes you can use to make use of the many cyclepaths/trails and beautiful beaches that Oleron has to offer.

Near the house, are the best SURF's spots (confirmed surfers) of the island, you can go by bike. Sebastien is surfer and will come with you surfing. We have some wetsuits and bodyboard for you.

We need some help especially for outside work:
