On a 50-hectare land located in Gaspésie, we experience day-to-day practices and know-how, traditional or reinvented, in order to move towards self-sufficiency and an alternative way of life. In this land, which already hosts many buildings and projects, everyone seeks to find a more coherent link with his daily life, whether for housing, food, entertainment or the production of goods and knowledge.
And if this laboratory is primarily aimed at its inhabitants, it also offers a place that the community invests regularly for the same reasons, either through projects anchored in the place, visits and woofing. Our actions thus radiate beyond the local landscape - hence the name that we could give it as a laboratory of social utility.
We are welcoming but we are not a place to welcome :) We like the visit and we like to welcome in good conditions, so thank you for contact us if you want to come see us.

June 30 2016: we founded the Hameau 18 co-op.
3 months later, the land and buildings were officially sold to the new co-op.
A BIG thank you to the donors and lenders who allowed us to conclude our fundraising campaign.
