    Hi Patrick - we have a long time member called Hard Working Hippy who is from France. You might like to send her a PM to see whether you could help out at her place.

    Salut Patrick,

    Thanks for your message. I'll answer you questions in the open forum in case there are other francophones who need help.

    No, I'm not French but I've been here for over twenty years and I live with a Frenchman who was born in our village.

    I'll certainly help you with places to go and people to see. Here's a site with the details of what's happening in the French Permaculture scene : https://www.permaculture.fr/

    I administrate the Permaculture forum : https://forum.permaculture.fr/

    Here's a map of some of the Permaculture sites in France : https://www.communitywalk.com/sites_de_permaculture_français/map/384150

    Let me know what other information you'd like.

    Irene

    Cherchant un lieu et des amis pour faire pousser des plantes naturellement...;-)...

    Chère Irène,,

    I am very happy to receive you mail, and I thank you very much for taking the time to answer me. :inlove:

    Actually, my need now is how to meet people in real life, either people who have already a sustainable working farm (and are willing to share, to host or to think about partnership) or people who are like me (without a place to start) and whom with I could exchange tips, ideas or maybe sharing or mounting a project together. Perhaps, I should go to WOOF for offering my help in a farm, but meanwhile, if it exists, I would like to propose my project to other (basically I have the motivation, some knowledge, full free time, and at least 100 000 of Euros to invest on a land of several acres with housing and water access). :handshake:

    I have followed this link you gave me, trying to contact the Kerzello in the Côtes d'Armor France (near where I am right now), but could not find any mail address nor a site where to contact them (just the telephone number, and I have only a cellular phone with expensive calls, so i prefer mails). I have found some forum discussions, and proposal to participate in paying formation (dated in 2008), but this is not what I am looking for right now (maybe when I will have a place of my own, but for now, I am learning through Internet, thinking about how the project could work and how I would like it to be... Meanwhile, I just happened to learn that they are making a teaching in October 20012, a,d I found their address and sent them a message for volunteer...:y:

    Mostly my researches are in meeting real people on real farms, maybe working as a benevolent, or looking for chance to get associated within an already existed group, or finding an appropriate place to start a farm. But I know it would be impossible for me to start just by myself...

    So I don't know if this place in Plufur still exist, and if it does, I would love to meet these people and give them a visit if they are OK for me to come... I hope they answer my message soon, and would tell you about it...:clap:

    The type of farm I would be interested in is the kind that does everything, for self sustainability (not the ones that are professional and very specialized in one crop only)...8)

    I have already registered a profile "lychees" in that other site some weeks ago, and presented my self, but did not received any real and serious connections I could feel comfortable with, so I did not maintained my proposal long..):
    https://forum.permaculture.fr/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=2495
    Maybe you could tell me how to proceed there to be more successful...:blush:

    I have also registered in this exchange site, that is apparently more for people who have already a place running and who are willing to exchange seeds or plants, but it sounds nice to be as there are some announcements and people :

    Thank you again for your time and help
    Kindly
    Patrick
