PLEASE COME TO OUR RESCUE !!!
We are a couple : Luc and Martine, both of us are French, but we do understand and - at least as far as Martine is concerned - speak English fluently. We have 1 part-time employee,Gerald, 50 years old French, plus worldwide helpers coming and going, . We also have 2 pets : 1 "insider" male cat,Gris-Gris, 1 "outsider" female cat, Lily.
Luc has been passionate about organic gardening ever since his youth and has been an organic farmer in Burgundy since 1980. Before Burgundy, he went to work 2 and 1/2 years in Burkina Faso for the Cooperation.
Martine, after having lived in England, the States and in Canada and having being into macrobiotics, buddhism, yoga, new age, etc... for years, has moved on to be a fervent Catholic (and turned the page definitely) : as such and amongst other things, she blesses the meals and goes to church on Sundays.
We live in what used to be a watermill (unfortunately the wheel is gone ), set in the middle of rural, rather ... more inside

RECHERCHE ANIMATEUR NATURE AVEC DES ENFANTS

Depuis 2012, l`association développe un écolieu écovillage en permaculture (oasis du mouvement colibri) basé sur un jardin mandala de 5500m² avec un mini-parc animalier. Le jardin nous permet déjà d`avoir l`autonomie alimentaire pour 10 personnes et de vendre environ 10 paniers par semaines. Nous réalisons également des formations en permaculture , recevons des bus de touristes, des classes vertes...

Il y a 3.5ha de terrain.

En attendant de trouver une équipe de 10 habitants (nous sommes 3) pour rénover et habiter les 700m², nous recherchons des bénévoles.

Hello All

We are a family of four. My wife, Louiza and I with our two children.

We have a small 20 hectare farm where we farm with Soay sheep (ancient breed that resembles to the wild mouflon sheep race). We also farm with wallabies. Apart from that we have large tracts of land with forests that need cutting and thinning out. Also we need to enclose more land with fencing and do some general renovation work on our farm.

We are aiming to have an eco friendly farm where visitors can come and stay for a few weeks. We are in the process of renovation our second farm house with natural materials and ecologically...not building with cement but chalk and sand, etc.

My wife has a beauty salon in town and spends her days there. I take care of the farm and try to advance by renovating and upgrading our farm. We sometimes just do not have the time for everything and a helping hand would be very much appreciated. I speak fluent English, German and Dutch. My wife is fluent in English... more inside

The Manoir de l'Echauguette is an 18th century Manor with beautiful outbuildings and a park closed of walls. It is set-up in the middle of an old North Burgundy village of 750 souls with all commodities.

About me: I am 48, completely international, born abroad, lived abroad as a child and later as an adult in London and Barcelona. I speak English and some Spanish (and French of course). I love meeting people, exchanging, teaming-up on projects.
Hélias the Golden Retriever and Mao the Labrador Retriever share the house with me.

I would welcome help:
- to help keep the courtyard and the garden great, but also better them with flowers.
It is a charming French designed garden with little alleys, with a line of fruit trees, a wall of grape, and some beautiful old trees. Timing: anytime
- For wood work, anything with house renovation. To create one more room in the attic, or help with modernizing a barn, lots of other projects possible. Timing: anytime

We are a young couple of vegetable farmers, on a small farm in Burgundy near Chalon-sur-Saône. We grow with family (our baby is 1 year old!) all kinds of vegetables depending on the season, and sell our products directly on the farm.
We want to keep a method as culture respectful of the environment as possible: we weed by hand, we use natural fertilizers ...
We also have chickens and quail, raised outdoors.

We hope increase this year our culture surface, and increase our number of chickens. So, we will set up new greenhouses, and a new chicken coop.
We will also start making the transformation of canned vegetables: ratatouille, eggplant Provencal, peeled tomatoes, tomato sauce, beans, etc.

In parallel, we are transforming our house a little, and do the construction of a family kitchen, and more!
