Hello ! Bonjour !
(Texte en français plus bas.)
We can host up to 4 helpers between October 19th and October 26th, 2019.
We are situated in Est of France, in the heart of the North Vosges, between Wissembourg and Bitche, a few kilometres from Niederbronn-les-Bains, in the small village of Obersteinbach. In our vicinity there are fortified castle ruins, rock-climbing sites; walking trails; mountainbike circuits and so on. Our house is surrounded by all of this. And we have a heated pool (during the suny seasons) where you can relax.

Maïlis and I (and our two cats, Mademoiselle and Gentleman) have always lived in this region, and after travelling and helpexchanging a great deal, we acquired a house on two hectares with a spring, a stream, a large pond and some woodlands.

Everything we plan is designed to renew Nature’s dominance here. We wish to restructure the area to enable amphibians, insects, birds, small mammals and all living creatures to recolonise the area. We’ve plan... more inside

Keith and I took early retirement from our careers in the UK to live Keith’s dream here in the beautiful Ariege; we certainly did live the dream together and shared a wonderful life. Keith lost his battle with cancer last year. I now find I need help more than ever.

TASKS
I need two pairs of willing hands; a mature minded, sociable couple; partners or two friends who are prepared to share a bedroom with a double bed.
Ideally any time from end of September to Mid November for 5 to 10 days.
Winter is clear up time in the garden. This year the small soft fruit growing area is quite overgrown and a particular challenge for me. It would be a most satisfying project and a tremendous help if this could be cleared. The work is not hard and requires little or no experience, as I can show you how. Although should you have particular skills I am sure they would be utilised.
Gardening plans can change, so it useful if helpers are flexible regarding the type of projects availa... more inside

Welcome in the Morvan!

This Burgundy area has many cycling and marked walking trails, a very rich biodiversity and 4 seasons which have each their own charm.

Permaculture is my tool to live in and with nature and offer wild life an interesting habitat so it can develop as rich as possible. My gardens are registered refuges by the Ligue Pour la Protection des Oiseaux (LPO).
Long term helpers can tend a permaculture design course. Books about permaculture in English and Dutch are available.

All sort of work to help out depending on the season. In the vegetable garden and orchard grow and harvest food, with the restoration of my in 1875 constructed farm using traditional building methods when possible. There are some chickens, bees and the dogs Sam and Joep to take care for. Build a rocket stove, resize the original wood fired bread oven,construct stairs, insulate the new roof,install term.solar panels,cut and take care for firewood.

Our Provencal olive farm and self-catering holiday Gite apartment is only 24km from Mediterranean beaches on the Cote d Azur. In fact, you can see the sea from the olive groves and the cabanon near the house!

WE ARE LOOKING TO FIND HELPERS from MID-OCT AND NOV, FOR OUR HARVEST!

The house is a typical Provencal bastide, built at the head of a secluded valley in 95 acres of Mediterranean olive groves and woodland.
It is backed by a dramatic circle of cliffs in the form of a horseshoe which protects it from the Mistral winds and is only 2 kms from the village which you can see down in the valley. The views are amazing... see more photos in our website http://olives-en-provence.com/galerie-en/
And behind the house there are 3,000 ha of national forestry with walks in an unspoiled and protected natural environment full of wildlife; wild boar, roe deer, foxes, martens, buzzards, hawks and several eagles among all the other lesser species.

Really useful (but not essential bec... more inside
