  • Description


    Hey! its Vicent from! I'm a musician and teacher, with music, I've had the inmese luck of traveling the world, playing in Japan, EEUU, Southeast Asia, Mexico, Colombia, Europe... Right now, I work as a teacher in music schools around, but i'm also so interested in off grid organic living and permaculture. I buyed a little piece of land in the valencian forest like one year ago. We are Simona (from austria) and me living here. This is a mediterranean landscape, we live near Sagunto, in the "Sierra Calderona" Natural Park, we are so happy here because we are living in the park but we are 15 minutes away from the most beautiful beaches of valencia. The parcel, right now, is a big pine forest and we are starting to develop a food forest based on native plant varieties. We have some farm animals. We apply permaculture principles in everything we do: organic garden, compost, natural construction, food chain... We will be happy to host you in the project! visit us on instagram: elcaudelesraboses

    Note: this is not a bussiness, its a non-profit project. Raboses is just a place to live and share with other conscious humans. Enjoy it :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    First of all, welcome to sunny side of Spain, we have a nice weather all year round, here you can learn everything about the mediterranean way of life, food its fantastic, we try to make some parties and suppers with friends to facilitate cultural exchange, but the most important you'll probably learn here its how to live with a permacultural approach and away from any noises and disturbance.

  • Help


    Okay. We need help for:

    1. Garden: We plant vegetables and fruit trees, there are different garden areas in the project. Everything we do is organic way (Biofertilisers, bokashi, compost, no dig, native micro-organisms reproduction) work in this way is about to plant, get gardens ready for planting, getting the fruits and handleling plant for a better production.

    2. Animals: We have some goats, they need to go out in the forest everyday, also we need to get the milk and transform it into cheese. Also we have some chickens, chicken tractor needs to move around the place everyday.

    3. Natural construction: We make some constructions. We usually do cob and strawbale construction, clay construction, clay coating... we are finishing up the goats stable. Also we are planing to construct a yoga temple with a reciprocal structure, an outdoor kitchen, a dry toilet....

    4. Land transform: in order to create more production areas, we need to transform the land, we apply dry stone wall techniques.
