Hi Guys :)

After a lot of travels around the world, being an helper myself and managing an Organic farm in British Columbia (Canada), i finally settled myself in france, in a farm (Ashnola Organic Farm).
The farm is located at the foothills of the Pyrenees, in the beautiful valley of the Baretous. It is just 20 minutes away from Oloron Ste Marie, 45 from Pau, an hour from Spain and less than 2 hours from the Atlantic ocean.
I am always looking for new helpers who want to share my life style, their stories and listen to mine, are not afraid to put some dirt on their hands, help with animals (chickens, rabbits, horses, cats and dog) and want to eat organic fresh food. Plus i do give a hand to my neighbors with their sheep (milking and making cheese).
According to the season we seed, plant, pick and pack and we go to the farmer market, and the basic chore of every farmer, some weeding :P
I like to work in the morning, 4 to 6 hours per day.
After that, the aftern... more inside

Martin and I are retired but very active. I was a teacher and ran a business, Martin was a builder and it's largely thanks to him that most of our old farm buildings here have been sensitively renovated in the local style. We live just to the north of Bergerac and have over a hectare of land with a few goats, a few hens, a vegetable garden, more fruit and walnut trees than we need, and we run a couple of popular holiday properties on the site. I speak good French although the main language in the house is English.

We really appreciate an extra hand from willing guests from time to time,and the chance to make new friends, hear new perspectives,and share stories round our table.

Although we are in a rural location, the lovely town of Bergerac is 5 minutes by car, with lots of things going on there as well as train and bus link... more inside

Our farmhouse from 1680 is situated on a hill top next to a forest on 9 Acres. We are setting up the property in a permaculture way; organic, raised beds, a crater-garden and a food forest. We are waiting for the permit to start a permaculture camping with some cabins and tree-houses. We are restoring the house in the traditional/green way, use reclaimed oak and chestnut beams and carved stones from an old ruin and work with lime, stone, clay and insulation from natural materials. We will make a greenhouse, chicken pen, pony stable, swimming pond and a petting zoo. We love our work, vegetarian food, and jamming around the camp-fire. Activities include: green building, organic vegetable garden, and forestry. We are a family with two small children and we enjoy our time with volunteers!
Recreation: Pyrenees mountains, ocean beach, swimming in a river.
We speak French, English, Dutch, German and some Italian.

Bonjour, kia ora and hi. We are Sara, Jeremy, 15 year old Elijah and dogs, Nyx and Lion and chickens, so far, hope for sheep soon. We are kiwis and British and have found a new home here in the sunny south west of France at the Moulin. It is on 8 acres of land, some woods, a river and pond, there are quite a few fruit trees, and a newly and very fast growing vegetable garden.
We have so much wildlife, frogs, bird, lizards, even salamanders. Our environment is pretty intact so the eco-system on our land is flourishing. It's wonderful and w etry and minimally impact on it.

For the last 3 years we have been tending and taming and renovating. This year we want to focus our fruit and veg.
Being somewhat sustainable is a goal so our chickens are part of that, as well as being lucky enough to have the fruit trees and good soil for our veg..
We will love to have help end of summer, early-autumn for fruit picking and help making jams and chutneys. We hate wasting food. Similarly our w... more inside

Plan for 2018 :
In July and August, I shall go to Rochefort in a huge house where there is plenty of work to do, I will receive guests, it will take a little maintenance of the garden, take care of the kitchen garden, paint the pool house etc. ... Probably Jocelyne will find me on weekends or one or two weeks. Helpers are welcome in Rochefort in July and August.

In September, I go back to Ares, We will demolish and rebuild an old hut at the bottom of the garden. It's a building company that will do most of the work but we will have to make things, clean, do electricity, plumbing and what else do I know? So helpers welcome.
In general, we ask 4h / day for 5 days / weeks for accommodation and food but any other combination is possible. So if you're available you come, you specify how long you want to come and we'll see.

HELP WITH GARDENING, TREE SURGERY, ANIMALS, COMMUNITY PROJECT, CARPENTRY, PLUMBING

I would like some help with tree surgery,carpentry, plumbing and as always I need help to keep my garden in order.

Also, some help with our community project. The next stages are maintaining flower beds in the village square and work on our nature trail.

I live in a recently constructed small wooden ecological house in the heart of the small friendly village of Cahuzac. The village has two classed historical monuments, the chateau and the church. Cahuzac also has a historical link with the first French governor of Quebec in the fifteenth century.

I am looking for helpers who will be attracted to this lovely little bit of paradise and who wish to contribute not only to my own garden and house but also to the small village community in which I live.

HELP WITH GARDENING
Some of my trees are in need of some surgery if you have the skills to do this.
I have a beautiful flower and produ... more inside

I would like to find people to help me out in four areas. 1. Rebuilding the wooden sluice gates and perhaps even a mill wheel. 2. Rebuilding a 72 square metre area wooden shed which is sloping and needs setting straight. 3. Helping to cut some trees down. 4. Creating an organic garden and cooking (perhaps that is 5?). Males or females with or without children, I have lots of space here for as many as ten people! The rebuilding work is heavy (heavy pieces of timber to be put in place) but the gardening light (is up to yourself) the soil here is absolutely beautiful, rich and loamy.
Really a very beautiful part of France/Europe and a lot to see on your days off: Saturday and Sunday. I prefer non-smokers, no heavy drinkers and no late risers. If you are able to help a lot then of course I can arrange my own schedule to fit your own plan but I prefer to be out of my bed by 9am so that the afternoons are free to enjoy, but wish to find people who are flexible and perhaps don't have an ... more inside
