Experience permaculture and help a family in Switzerland

Last Updated: May 23, 2018

We're a family with two children (6 and 2 years old), running a permaculture project at 1300 mt. on the Swiss alps, in a small historical village served by public transports. We have a veggie and medicinal garden and few ducks. Barbara teaches permaculture and Joe is an experienced guide in wild and medicinal herbs.
Help needed in the veggie garden (mulching, fencing, etc.), in the house (housekeeping and cooking, babysitting) as well as for harvesting and transforming wild plants.

Families are welcome.

We look for motivated volunteers that wants to experience our way of living; therefore if you need a place in Switzerland as a basis to look for jobs, this is not the place for you.

Being at our place you'll become part of a tribe.

Help in daily tasks is required and we'll be happy to share with you trekkings to enjoy the beauty of our area and to harvest wild medicinal herbs.

We'll be pleased to share with you our knowledge about growing plants as food and medicine, making our own preparations (balms, medicinal herbal teas, mother tinctures, poultices), using permaculture principles in our garden and in our life.
We'll share our meals together.
Sleeping in tent in our garden.

A double room is available next door for Fr. 5,- per person per night.

During July and August a weekly market takes place at the village, an opportunity to meet people and buy homemade bread and others local products.
French or Italian required plus patience with children and a capacity to be simple and open-minded.Arrival preferred before 6pm to not interfere with our schedule of dinner and bed time. No smoking allowed in the house, especially when children are around.

We are also on helpx:
