Thank You USA and Australia for helping

Americans and Australians join forces in France

Thank You Thank You Thank You!!

We love to show appreciation to all our volunteers who have volunteer with us in France. La Giraudière wouldn’t function as successfully or be as diverse without our mix of volunteers. So as a thank you, we are giving a shoutout to 2 sets of friends from different sides of the globe!

Firstly we have Sara-Jane and Megan from the USA. These lovely American ladies were only here for one week, but they were a massive help during their stay. They spent their time working on our beautiful garden and helping our new flowers from the market settle into their new environment. During their down time, they took full advantage of our on site bikes and headed down into Brossac to enjoy some ice cream in the sun. We really hope you enjoyed your stay and you come back for longer next year.

Secondly, we say “merci” to Vivienne and Jill from Australia. These two Ausssies visited us for four weeks and they fitted right in.They both undertook different jobs, Vivienne did our housekeeping and Jill worked in both the garden and the office, and every task they undertoook with so much enthusiasm. They were very friendly and a great asset to the LG family. When they had some free time, they visited a number of places including La Rochelle and Chalais Chateau. Thank you for everything and we hope you returned to Australia safely!
