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.

This is us. Our little nest in a big world. On the edge of a sweet French hamlet, in a green valley.
The land is co-owned by myself, my fantastic sister Vanessa, and my incredible parents. Apart from myself, the rest of the family are now based in the UK, leaving me with alot on my hands!
We have a large barn used for storage and as a workshop; a herb garden, a large vegetable garden, a berry patch, ducks, chickens, geese, a dog, cat and our neighbour keeps his sheep on the land.
This is our fourth year with this land and as such we are still very much in the groundwork stage, establishing systems and putting in basic infrastructure. There is a lot of work to do but it is varied and we do it to our rhythm.
We have also put on a local festival and provide decor and sound system gear for events. Last year we also made a series of short films with local talent. Some of our projects are listed on our website, www.naufrage.fr

In 2019, the Ecocentre will celebrate its five years. It's still early childhood because at
the image of the man, the ecocentre will take time to reveal itself in its fullness. But already, we can
to perceive in what emerges particular traits, indications of what will be the place later.
Thus the ecocentre has become the starting point of many trails today clearly recognized, for short walks, for swimming, as if to cross the mountain on a half day or even days. We talk about nature, philosophy, garden, building sites, physical and energy practices, education and many other subjects.
From a more prosaic point of view, 2017 has allowed the emergence of a real garden characterized by the marriage of varieties and a nursery trees frui-third. Regarding eco-construction, there are now more restored areas than restored.

Creation of the pottery workshop in the summer of 2019, development of a collective kitchen with a bread oven, construction of dry stone walls,

Join us for the creation and development of our co-working space and maker space in rural France!

Hello,
We are a group of highly-motivated individuals living 30 minutes car drive south of the beautiful city of Poitiers, in SW France.
A year ago, we started an association in order to create a shared space - what they usually call a "maker space" or "co-working space". In French, the word is "Tiers-lieu".
This space is destined to welcome anyone who has a creative or business project, and needs a place to work, be creative, have a calm and pleasant environment to think, mature a project, meet people to sound out their project with, and make things.
Our place will also welcome people who need an office, or a desk, for one or more days every week, or more punctually, with a coffee machine and photocopy machine near. We will have top-notch videoconferencing equipment for those of you who need to meet with people far away. Finally, anyone who wants to organise a workshop, a conce... more inside

English couple, living in beautiful, rural France for over 17 years, looking for help with gardening (large, vegetable garden), cutting and clearing of old trees, help with building work and general maintenance of our 50 acre property.

We live in a lovely, restored farmhouse surrounded by approximately 50 acres of fields and woods, a stream and a little lake. We have a large second home on our property, also lovingly restored, which is rented out, fully, during the high season, to guests. There is a stunning, large swimming pool for the guests and our use.

We try to keep the land and gardens looking as beautiful as possible for us and our guests but the upkeep can become extremely time-consuming for just 2 people. We would really like some help with the gardening and outside maintenance in return for being able to spend time in this truly stunning part of South West France.

We are looking for up to 2 people (ideally a couple) to stay with us for a minimum of 6 nights. We ... more inside

We are a lively English/ German family looking for somebody to help us with our guesthouse and animals in the beautiful Midi-Pyrenees area of South-West France. We are looking for helpers from end of March onwards and through the whole of spring and summer. We experienced that helpers stay between 2 - 4 weeks, as most of them are travelling around. But it could also be longer.

We are Kenneth (58), Kathrin (50), Kieran (18 years ), Kristine (16 years ), a German/ English family running a guesthouse in South-West France, 70 km north-west of Toulouse. We are using all three languages in our family, Kenneth speaks English to the children, whereas Kathrin generally speaks German to Kieran and Kristine. Both children also speak French at school or with their friends, so we really are all trilingual. Most of our guests are also French, so basic language skills are useful.
Kenneth is a Jazz musician and works away on cruise ships a lot and this is why we are looking for somebody to he... more inside
