in 2017 i bought a house in the french département called haute marne, which is part of the greater region of Grand Est. the house came with a huge garden, divided into one third flowers, one third vegetables and the last third a small orchard. i would be very pleased to have a helping hand now and then to be able to take better care of garden, house and barn. i am not looking for slaves, but for skilled people who are interested in sharing their knowledge working together with me for 4 hours a day, 5 days a week. i do own 3 dogs, so dog-unfriendly people please refrain from asking. i am an long term vegetarian, and have started my retirement very recently. i do speak english, french and german fluently as i grew up in luxembourg. the location is in a very small and rather remote (next to no public transport) village. i could fetch helpers at the parking lot of exit 8.1 of highway A 31. helpers have their own room with one double and two single beds. bathroom has to be shared. w-lan... more inside

Hello everyone,

We are located in Trémel in Côtes d'Armor, in the middle of nowhere. Our closest neighbors are a herd of cows !!! But we have a lot of visits, especially in the summer, between HelpX, trainees, scouts, friends, etc ...

Five years ago, I decided to live the society as I conceived it, instead of constantly criticizing it. So I left my previous job and bought the farm where I currently live. Since then, I have set up solidarity projects:
2015: ? Establishment of the Grouped Habitat Tifolk
? Participation in the Swiss Association "Pumpipumpe" (network of neighbors sharing)
? Establishment of a "Insects Edible" (since in "stand by" since it does not comply with French legislation
? Beginning of the project "Renovation of the studio"
2016: ? Setting up a food garden, a shared garden and a self-service garden (Les Incroyables Edibles)
? Creation of a new drink based on Ginger concentrate
? My first beekeeping, with the acquisition of a hive (to start). We use t... more inside

The project here at La Mariais is to create a learning centre for sustainable living. The work with friends and volunteers is currently coordinated by myself (an English woman with a background in permaculture, organic gardening, healthy vegetarian cookery, teaching and ecoconstruction).

This year work will continue on the old wattle and daub house (applying lime renders)and in the edible/permaculture garden and forest garden (tree planting, creating garden structures and growing annual and perennial food crops). Designing and/or building a rocket mass stove, a solar shower, dry toilets and an earth shelter or tiny house on the land is also a possibility. So if you have skills in any of these areas I would love to hear from you.

Creating delicious food with wild and cultivated plants is a big part of life here.

If you have skills in building or gardening/ landscaping you could really help to move the project on. However all are welcome.
