In the Summer of 2006, the seeds for this 'small - is - beautiful' reciprocal project were sown at Jacqui's 'Place to Be' in the Cevennes. The reality of Bio or Organic Farming in a French valley where so many of the young have left home had resulted in total exhaustion for the older farmers. On the other hand, Totnes is full of enthusiastic and energetic people of all ages prepared to go to their farms to help them. In turn they learnt about planting onions by hand, caring for goats & making cheese. Initially they travelled with Jacqui Cousins to carry out this work, but now they all link with the larger International WWOOF Association.
