  • Description

    Description

    This is a rural experimentation space focused on self-sufficiency in food, arts, culture, energy, technology, education and leisure.

    We develop projects collaboratively and coordinate workshops and events.

    How?
    Learning collaboratively and hands-on. Observing, investigating and testing, failing, learning from our mistakes, reflecting and trying again.

    Our working methodologies are based on permaculture and hacker ethics applied to all areas of human life.

    We organise ourselves in laboratories or work areas to develop projects and activities on topics as diverse as organic agriculture, art, self-building, technologies, leisure and energy.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Workawayers will be fully integrated into the organization and work systems. They will become part of the family and the team. They will join the work group they are most interested in (organic agriculture, textile, self-building, music, energy, robotics) and will participate in the projects accompanying the person in charge. In addition, they will always have the possibility to develop their own projects, accompanied and tutored if required by the project coordinator of that particular laboratory.

    In addition to the exchange of knowledge, they will use project management tools, documentation and agile development methodologies in a transversal way.
