I would greatly appreciate help in the house and garden from 26 June onwards until mid July and then late July to early September.
Our home is 3kms from one of the lovely little medieval Breton towns in the department. There are many lovely countryside walks in the locality and we are just 18kms from the coast or the city of Saint Brieuc. Public transport is available from the next village - a 1km walk or I may be able to offer a lift.
For accommodation I can offer a nice room with private shower and toilet facilities and all meals provided. Wifi is available if you bring your equipment.

I run an organic orchard (apple, walnut, hazelnut, chestnut, pears, ...) close to Lannion and 15 min from the sea cost. I'm also a beekeeper (around 30 hives with local black bees).
I live with Florence, who is an organic cheese maker, and Gwendal, our nearly 3 years old little boy, who is very cute ! He is having a little brother or sister in may, so Florence doesn't work anymore. The cheese is made by a substitute.
We also have an orchard and a vegetable garden at home to look after.
I've been helper around the world in 2011! It was a great experience and I have learned a lot, so now it's our turn to host.
We are non smoker.

You will be hosted in our friend room, at home.
You can use some bikes if you want to ride around and there are great walks around the place.

There is a lot to do here, depending on the seasons : building, beekeeping, making hives, cutting fire wood, planting, taking care about trees, gardening, milking the goat and cows, taking care of the c... more inside

We are two couples creating an eco-project in the countryside, in south west of France. We are a multicultural group of friends (Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, France) that traveled a lot and lived abroad for many years. Now that we are creating our own project we are interested in cultural exchange and sharing experiences about permaculture and eco-construction.
This summer we are building our eco-place with friends and we are looking for more volunteers to be part of our adventure!

We need volunteers to help us set up our eco-place from mid-June to mid-July and from mid-August to mid-September :
-Shared facilities (kitchen, solar shower, building renovation)
-Permaculture garden
-Eco-house made with wood, mud and bale straw

No Summer needs ! Only for March to June !
We are now looking for 2 helpers for june (not before the 11th). We would prefer english speakers to improve our english!

We propose a warm friendly family welcome in exchange for help in our garden and around the house. We are both working, and our garden is always in need of cutting, clearing, weeding, pruning, mowing..., and wood sawing. This time the job will be above all wood sawing and clearing to built a henhouse.

We ask for 4 hours work on 5 days a week but work time and times off could be flexible to suit all.

We need people from march to june, we prefer 2 weeks stay and this can be extended if we are all happy :) We prefer also two friends or one couple. It's easier for the job.

You will have your own bedroom with one double bed in our house but you'll have to share the bathroom with our son, Baptiste 25 years old who is living with us (but working so, he is not so often there) and perhaps with Capucine (23 years old)... more inside
