We are two writers who live in an old cottage on the edge of a small ridgetop village within half an hour's drive of the Pyrenees. Our lifestyle is as eco as we can make it. We are looking for help with gardening work, wood cutting, furniture painting, organising our workshop as well as some occasional help in the house. We are ovo-vegan and eat predominately organic food. The atmosphere is informal, creative and laid-back. Originally from the UK, we both speak French and Leaf is fluent in Spanish, Sue has some German. Currently we need helpers for March to help open the garden for the spring/summer months.

Hi, we are Mailys and Joel, and would like to welcome you in our house located about 30km west from Paris.

We offer a private room + private bathroom for 1 or 2 persons in a comfortable and large house, with a nice garden, a fitness room and a garage. The district is extremely quiet, and Versailles and Paris are easily accessible via public transportation (20 / 45 minutes resp.).

The work is most of all flexible and will most likely depend on your skills. Generally speaking, we are interested to get some help on gardening, and general handling of the house.
We expect you to help 3h/day average, but we are quite flexible.
We are definitely looking for cultural exchanges.

In return we provide comfortable accommodation in our house, and WiFi. We have bikes you can use to explore the countryside.

Email us for much more details and pictures. Looking forward to meeting you, Mailys and Joel.

We are keen to find people interested by ecological building, composting installations, pedal power, sun frugal technology, natural cosmetics and cleaning products, wild plants food recipes, wood work, semi-spontaneous agriculture, DIY etc. This is cactus planting time!
This is a project that started in 2012, is an attempt to bring degrowth into practice: consume less, produce less and share more. We join people who have ready to experience a life of voluntary simplicity, a preventive approach to destructions. The idea is to ‘degrow’ in terms of economic greed, resource consumption, social inequality and destruction of ecosystems. Instead, we believe in growing our minds and hearts, and looking at the world differently. It is also a place to facilitate the exchange of ideas, undertake degrowth actions across borders, create ‘frugal innovation’ and discover and encourage farmers’ and craft persons’ know-how. And important: we love unplugged music and danse.

Our farm is 40 hectares of rolling woodland and meadow near the small town of Mirepoix, in Ariège, south-western France. We are developing our farm project and currently have 7 Galloway and 9 Casta cows. Our project involves holding meditational Retreats in which guests are given the opportunity to practice yoga, meditation and silent walks in and around the farm. We are also developing a nature sanctuary on all our land which includes the cows, an orchard, recreating wildflower meadows and creating wildlife ponds and of course, showing love and respect to the original inhabitants - the deer, wild boar, buzzards, lizards and so on.

We have recently featured in a BBC documentary 'The Secret Life of Farm Animals' and also in several well-being magazines such as Happiful, Breathe and Pebble.

The foundation of the farm is quietness. That doesn't mean we don't talk, rather that we are dedicated to allowing this natural quietness guide us in all we do.

Hi,

We are Toby (40) from the UK and Ania (30) from Poland, a young couple with a 22 month old daughter, Sarah.

We have inherited an old french farm which was renovated into a 16 bedroom hotel by my father back in 1990, it is a beautiful house in the countryside of the Dordogne, very peaceful area with lots of beautiful wildlife.

The house is in the centre of the French wine region in-between Bergerac and St Emillion. 60km from Bordeaux.

Sadly parts of the house have been neglected over the years, so we need some help to get the place cleaned and ready to re-open this summer.

We used helpx last winter and we had a good experience, so we would like a bit more help this spring.

If you are good with your hands & happy to get involved, this will be perfect, if you have experience with painting and construction that will be even better.

We have a nice room for you in the main house with a nice view over the garden and with TV, Kettle for Tea & Coffee, Wi-Fi and ens... more inside
