Sometimes it can happen to play with our children while we are their neighbours, a bit ‘of babysitting is really welcome!
We like eating together, cooking together, washing together! If for various reasons we can not do it, we obviously provide the food and thevolunteers are autonomous. We try to use vegetables from the garden, when there are, and wild herbs.
Cleaning together, especially the spaces we use together (kitchen, living room, patio) is very important to us
Required work time: 6 hours a day, 6 days a week. At the beginning of the week, let’s do a program together. We require a certain autonomy, it can happen that we will not always be present during the day!
