la r.O.n.c.e welcomes volunteers…
We are a collective of 8 people, called la r.O.n.c.e, who are currently settling up in South Brittany(France), and we will be happy to welcome volunteers from May in order to discover (just like us!) permaculture and organic food growing by helping out with everything that need doing on site.
La « r.O.n.c.e. », (aka Resist. Organise. Nourish. Create. Exist) is a collective of farmers, artists, mechanics, cooks, permaculturists, botanists, trainers that aim to experiment with a post-capitalist life and creative forms of resistance. Our collective brings together activists (e.g. against the Notre-Dame-des-Landes airport), who are using consensus decision making and are respectiful of the expression of emotions.
We are currently settling up on a 15 acre site, located 4 km away from a train station and within a very active region. An organic market garden is starting off this year and also has three donkeys, which will be eventually used to work the land. We are also planning a self managed mechanic workshop, a vegan nomadic kitchen, a lab/training centre on art and activism, a forest-garden and the refurbishment of buildings.
We would prefer that volunteers stay about three weeks (but this would obviously need confiming after a week spent together), to have proper public liability insurance and to become a member of the « friends of la ronce » (a non profit organisation aiming to support our projects). The conditions are very basic (no hot running water, sleeping in a caravan without heating, etc) and our food is mostly vegan. We speak French and English.
If you are interested, please send an email explaining why you want to come, when and for how long, your experience, the language(s) you speak, etc)
