  • Description


    My name is Iris, 34 years old. I live in the house where my grandparents lived, which is and old house built by them. Is pretty big and have a big area of land to do gardening, plant vegetables and so on. My father plant there a lot of trees which are now very big. In the spring is plenty of grass and flowers and you can rest in the shadow of variety trees. My family did an organic agriculture for long time and now I would like to redo planting organic vegetables, fruit...
    I have a lot of ideas like doing a path with aromatic plants, an space where you can meditate in nature with some wood tools, create an space to do a women circle and far more. That's the outside part, but inside the house there is a cozy fireplace. All the rooms are plenty of light. We don't have neighbours (only enfront of he house separate with an street) so is pretty quiet and calm.

    The place is located in a little village (1170 inhabitants) in the middle of the countryside in the Lleida's area. It's named Vilanova de Bellpuig. You can bike around and walk near the canal.

    I love spending time in nature and I would like to do one more step creating with hands, close to the earth. I am zero waste, trying to reduce and reuse. I like music a lot, reading, writing and I would like to learn singing. Also I am a dancer and I apreciate all kind of arts. I work as a social educator-social worker.

    *Imagine what can be done and do it*

    If it is what are you looking for don't hesitate to contact me! I am sure together we will learn each other and share meals and ideas ;)
