We discovered HelpX a while ago & we thought what a great idea to help us make progress with our renovation of stone buildings which make up a hamlet here in the middle of France.
We have lived here for 18 years with our 2 sons ( 18 & 22) having met in Amsterdam. They are bilingual in French & English & one of us speaks good Dutch but has little practice.
Three of the buildings are finished (our home & 2 holiday rentals) plus a wagon we rent out. We have 5 hectares of woodland & pastures, that surround the buildings, that need to be maintained. (This is where joining helpX comes in). To give you a better idea of what we are trying to achieve please look at our website.
We all enjoy meeting new people. We have travelled quite a bit & are happy to share our experiences & knowledge with others.
We're looking for help in developing & maintaining our extensive grounds & woodland. Helpers could stay in our wagon- depending on bookings. We have free wifi & cooking facilities.

Hello Helpxers,

We still have space for our annual volunteer weeks from 12-26 april 2019 on our permaculture and glamping farm.
In the first spring sun we are going to do the odd job like gardening, handy stuff, painting and more. Or join in for some good food, ping pong contests and hanging out around the camp fire.
There are many little things to do, but it is also dependent on what you have to offer us. There is lots of cleaning to do in the garden, starting up the veggie garden, work in the new young orchard, painting jobs, some carpentry, fencing. For the very handy people there is also space for little projects.

What we Ask
We are looking for independent workers who are not afraid for some physical work. You stay a minimum of one week, but of course you are welcome to join us for both the weeks. We are open to men and women (we don’t receive children this week).The work is quite fysical, so if you have serious back or knee problems this probably is not for you.

W... more inside

Bonjour and Hello,

We are a family of 5 (plus a very friendly dog, 2 cats, 11 assorted hens and a cockerel!) We have 3 sons (17,14,11) who moved from the UK in 2007 to this amazing spot in the Aude . We live in a former bergerie situated amidst beautiful wooded hills 3km from the small village of Arques on the edge of the Corbieres hills.

We grow a lot of our own vegetables and herbs and some of our own fruit all naturally. We are experimenting with different natural cultivation techniques to find ones that work best here and working with a variety of mulching materials.
We have a small organic market garden the produce of which we sell in the village and to the local primary school. We also exchange produce with friends.
Much of our land is marginal and needs help to become capable of providing good healthy crops. After 9 years of growing here the improvements are showing themselves through some yummie-tasting veggies.
We have a polytunnel which in winter is full o... more inside

Hi everyone,

We are a family of 4, Sebastien and Laurence, with our two young children, Louise who is 8, and Morgan who is 5 years old. We also house 2 cats and sometime sheep!
We live on Oleron Island, and our house is a 5 minute bikeride (or 10minute 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 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:

- We have a large garden where we grow lots of organic fruits (raspberries, blackberries, redcurrants, blackcurrants..) so we always need help mulching, weeding, watering, mowing, etc.,

- There's always a b... more inside

Hi there!
I discovered helpx when I was travelling in new Zealand and now that I have a place to call home, I would love to keep this travelling feeling that you'll bring with you!

I live in a nice brick house and need and hand to bring back this old lady to her best potential.
The house need some indor refreshment. I don't know yet all I want to do in there but there'll be some wall painting involve for sure.
I have a garden too if you prefer working outside and if the weather allows it. I really want to do something out of it, grow some of my food there... Do you know anything about permaculture?
I also would like to build a cold frame or a greenhouse made from reused material.
If you like cooking, I'm always curious to try different food. I'm used to eat meat and try to reduce my meat consumption but I have hard time to cook meat free meals so if you are vegetarian or vegan, I hope you can share tricks or recipes!
I would like you to work 3 to 4 hours a day and 5 days... more inside

**We still have space for the summer season,Spring and automn do get in touch!

We have bed and breakfast with a little organic garden. This is a place of peace, a little bit in the countryside but as there are always people around you`ll never feel lonely. Philippe looks after the garden while Jeanne-Marie is mostly running the bed and breakfast - making sure everyone has a good stay. We eat all meals together with all guests and friends/family.
I`m experimenting more and more with vegetarian cooking but there is always meat and fish at the table for the people who want it
And Philippe like meat always

There is always something to do, either in the bandb or in the garden. Normally in the morning you help cleaning the (bath)rooms when our guests have left. You can help in the garden, picking fruits and vegetables and learn how to prepare them for a nice, healthy meal. A good opportunity to experience proper French cuisine. French is mostly spoken but we also speak a bit Eng... more inside

Sorry, NO NEED for volunteers now.

If you like animals, specially birds, you would probably like to help us... Our association was created 15 years ago, with a sanctuary certified by the local veterinary services department and the prefecture.

We shelter all types of parrots, regardless of their age or behaviour.

Each year, new parrots are illegally imported into France or seized by authorities over bad treatment, with no possibility of arranging for their re-adoption for legal reasons because they are considered wild captive fauna.

See our website to learn more about us: www.asap.asso.fr and click on the English flag on the right to see the introduction page of our English website. To see some of our parrots, click on the button sponsorship ;-)

This non-profit, non-subsidised organisation needs volunteers to provide the care these birds need.

The work requires feeding the parrots every morning and cleaning the area regularly. Afternoons are free. We prefer a minim... more inside
