The Catfarm

Step off-grid and join our collaborative art project and be a part of our purrrfect community. We are a collective of travellers working and growing alongside each other to build and maintain our community in the beautiful south region of France. This project offers the unique opportunity to learn new skills, showcase your talents, make life-long friends, and build a masterpiece together. We have the equipment to build living structures and are open to all creative input. The Cat Farm sits amongst wide open space near the seaside and just 30 km away from Montpellier. The land allows off-the-grid living and has the potential for a permaculture system to be in place. There is a lot of work to be done on this French farmhouse as well as a large amount of freedom for your own creative direction. It is a place where a community can thrive together whilst working towards achieving sustainability through creative collaboration. The Catfarm gained its name from the many cats that used to be in the area and is hard to miss with the giant cat statue that stands tall above the farm land amidst the picturesque hills in the beautiful region of Poussan in the south of France. NOTES - 4 euro a day for the contribution of the food. The Cat Farm does not yet have income to support this feature. - We are family-friendly! People and children of all ages welcome. - You must be fluent in English - We eat nearly always vegetarian and cater for vegans Off-the-grid living can be more challenging than what you might be used to, and involves problem-solving and patience. But living in a community means we are all in this together, and no problem lasts too long when we work as a team. Our main living area is called The Hanger. This is where we sleep, cook and relax. We require volunteers to be open to alternative ways of living, as you will be sleeping in our shared space, or in a tent or hammock. Bringing a tent will improve your chance of getting a spot, as we have limited beds. Have more needs? For Worldpackers we have discount on a really cool private accommodation. Please clearly ask this in your first message.

We believe that we can create a more just and sustainable world, right here, right now. Through creative collaboration, sharing, and sustainable off-grid living, we are building towards an eco-friendly future of equality and human connection. Join us in the journey and become a part of the Cat Farm Community, where you can cultivate new skills, or put your existing ones into practice with purpose. ~ Building the future: sustainability, creativity, community ~ SKILLS WE URGENTLY NEED: - Builders & makers - Electricians - Plumbers - Gardeners - Renewable energy skills WE ALWAYS NEED - Social media content creators (video, photo, writing) - Artists!! - Vegetarian cooks

I traveled through Europe for 3 months, and my two weeks here were BY FAR my favorite on my trip. The friendships that I made were priceless, and I was so happy to be so close to nature constantly, it really grounds you. I would recommend this to anybody up for a rewarding and beautiful experience.

How do I talk about this experience? Words can't describe everything that I lived and experienced in The Catfarm. For me, a hole new and surprising way of seeing life, with this sense of community that changes our relationship with nature and the world around us. Also a lot of learning about different cultures... It's really gratifying feeling noticing that after passed through some incredible (and tough, sometimes) situations we grow a lot and in the end we have made connections with really special people for the whole life. Thanks for everybody that made this travell so amazing.

Great opportunity to be with like minded people who want to explore Eco living and sustainability. I had a nice opportunity to experiment with perma culture and to create compost (activating the thermophile bacteria) using the humanure from the Eco toilet. It was one of the best experiences I've had in a long time, even if working outdoors in 40c heat was a challenge for me. Friends for life made.

That was an amazing experience, I spent 3months there, and I did a lot of things that I'll not imagine before. The people that I met were so nice, interesting, full of love, real adventurers running after happiness and discovery! The projects of the Catfarm are so great, the tipy, the 404 air bnb... everything. I was feeling at home. And of course, I'll come back! The Catfarm is an incredible lovely place where you can learn some much things.... And enjoying all together some chill' and positive moments, like around a campfire hahah! :)I wish all the best to the Catfarm! Meooooow :)xx

I had an amazing experience at The Cat Farm. Ulysses was very kind and taught me many skills. The other volunteers were fantastic always having a laugh or good conversation. I felt welcome and safe at the cat farm. I can only say good things about it.
Thank you so much.
I'll be back (hopefully)
