About the workproject

We need 3 volunteers

Hi! We are Debbie and Daniel we moved from the UK to a beautiful part of Normandy about 2 hours from Paris in 2000. We have a vegetarian/vegan b&b with 3 guest rooms which is in the stunning Pays d'Auge area. We have 3 and a half acres of glorious gardens that we manage organically, we grow lots of vegetables and fruit for our guests and helpers. We have chickens, ducks and turkeys as pets, don't worry we only eat their eggs! The help we need varies depending on the time of year. Our b&b and restaurant are closed from mid-September to Easter so at this time of year the help is mostly projects in our extensive gardens and in our various buildings there are always general repairs decorating and furniture renovations. If you have any skills in these areas that would be great! You can help feed and look after the animals too. You will learn lots of new skills! I can also use your help with my paperwork, especially if you speak French. We can also help you with your English if you need it! We have been welcoming helpers for many years, we really enjoy having helpers and bringing people together, they remain friends & often return year after year. If you are a hard worker and enjoy meeting new friends from different countries, sharing stories and having fun come and join us! Contact us and we can send you lots more details!
