    Description

    Hi travellers:)
    Please note; that we are currently looking for guests who can commit to a whole month stay only. 2 travellers is best, or a solo traveller who’s happy to live there alone. We specifically need help in July & August, however there is always the possibility to stay longer if everyone is content.

    We’ve been working on this farm for the last 6 years, it was previously abandoned. We decided to dedicate our time & energy to this project because being in nature feels good, we love watching the trees and the veggies grow. We try to create a healthy and beautiful space where people can come together and feel good. That's the idea; sharing and caring :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We like to celebrate life and have a good time, we have friends who pop by to visit, especially on the weekends. We don’t live there, but will visit 2-3 times a week. We’re very busy during the week, but like to stop & enjoy time together socially on the weekends. We'd appreciate having people here who are good communicators & will keep us in the loop of what’s happening, asking questions when they’re not sure how to proceed with something or if they have new ideas they’d like to try.

    Help

    You can help creating a Garden of Eden. There's about 200 fruit trees (half of them mandarines), plus many herbs & medicinal plants, and a big veggie patch. There are also lots of animals; sheep, goats, chickens, roosters & a dog. We’ll provide food; for details or special dietary needs please ask us. The tasks required of guests will be mainly caring for the animals & watering the plants. Guests will go to another farm to help out 1-2 times per week where they’ll see & learn how a fully functioning eco/bio dinamic farm is run. Fresh home grown eco vegetables will be provided in exchange. Guests must have experience living independently and be used to caring for themselves; cooking, cleaning, shopping etc. and ideally we’d like people who love animals and have a positive attitude.
    PETS; sorry, but we can’t accept travellers with pets, as we already have a big male dog living on the farm who doesn’t like sharing his territory with other domestic animals.

    Accommodation

    There’s a caravan to sleep in, and we have mosquito nets for the beds. There’s electricity and running water, plus another caravan that we’ve transformed into a beautiful wooden kitchen (with table), fully equipped for cooking, eating, and hanging out. There's a wooden outdoor garden shower, another more private indoor shower (with hot water), and we're using a dry toilet system (solids only).

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    In your free time you can visit Tortosa (there is a bus), and do other things like trekking in the mountains nearby, swimming in the river Ebre (20min walk), or simply hang out on the farm. The closest town is called Bítem (5min walk) where you'll find supermarkets, restaurants, bars, banks, and a lovely veg market. We’ll share time together and we'll try to make your stay a happy one, but please remember that we're busy so cannot be present every day. We often have friends coming over for coffee, a drink or BBQs, and you'll always be welcome to join us.
    ARRIVAL; you can catch the train from Barcelona (Estación de França, Barcelona Sants, or Passeig de Gracia), to TORTOSA. The journey is 2 - 2.5 hours and costs 12-13€ one way; we will pick you up at Tortosa train station and take you to the farm. Coming from elsewhere; please ask us...
