Sharing France

March 13, 2012

Time to look at your life with a fresh eye?

How about inviting strangers into your home and your garden. To share your friendships and family- even your pets?

This Fresh Eye reveals the things you love and care for- the hopes, dreams and hard work- in a most startling way. Seeing someone ‘get it’. Hearing the penny drop. Watching the light bulb go off.

This last week I shared my France- my ‘deep southwest Gascon home sweet home @ Camont‘ with a few new fresh eyes. As mentioned in my previous posts, Peter Barrett won the year long Charcutepalooza contest . The Grand Prize was an all expenses paid for trip to France (via Trufflepig Travel) and the better part of a week with me at Camont exploring the charcuterie farms of Gascony. What did Peter discover? You can read all about it here on his blog.

What would you discover if you came to Camont?  Take a look…

kate, i can honestly say that my time in Camont did change my life and the way i live and the way i am in the world. all of those things are by extension helping to change and shape my community…
it is fun. it is exciting. it is rewarding.
but most of all it is beginning to allow a sustainable and locally sourced food supply that is healthy and delicious.
thanks !

Bill, thanks for your kind words. Camont and Gascony changed my life, too. I just feel it an obligation to pass that on. It’s nice when someone picks up the relay. see you soon!
Mem and Sharon…keep following along- there’s more to share!
