We are a family renovating a large property with a vineyard and lots of fruit trees and extensive green - including an irrigation mini-lake, woodlands, big grass sports field, Pizza/BBQ area, and mountain bike trails.
We are setting up a Green Tech incubator -- a place where people can come and try out new ideas to do with sustainable farming, automated gardening, renewable energy etc. Imagine a bunch of inventors or green tech entrepreneurs each with a small piece of land and some good equipment on hand.
We are only 20 mins from central Barcelona.
We are looking mainly for people of experience. Plumbers, electricians, carpenters, gardeners, experienced in agriculture, builders etc. Do what you are good at in exchange for a place to stay etc. We offer accommodation and lots of extras (very fast internet, fun stuff to do etc) but we do not offer food as we dot have an easy way to do so.
We have plenty of room for those that want to bring a tent or camper van - you can connect to water and electricity and have access to a shower and bathroom. We have very limited normal housing also....
see you soon
DIY and building projects
Help with Eco Projects
Help with Computers/ Internet
You will help laying piping, digging, planting, watering, fixing, making, ideas etc. There is forestry work, help with pumps and watering, some building type work, gardening, vineyards maintenance, harvesting, wine making, everything! Lots to learn and derive satisfaction from doing.
We have local farmers and gardeners helping and you can learn from them. You can also get to Barcelona in a few minutes on the bus that costs just 3eur. The bus stop is within easy walking distance - and so is the local pub and the town.
This host offers accommodation and payment.
This ancient cherry farm and more recently vineyard and future one family sustainable farm, is a 15 minute bus ride from Barcelona - in the hills overlooking the ocean of Alella (a small town known for its wine). There are 17 acres of fruit trees, and (mostly) unprepared land plus 1.5 acres of vines. Plus we are sowing grass over a large flat area for kids - and adult - play.
The farm is 10 mins walk from charming Alella town and 1.5km from the beach. The Costa Brava starts here.
We are trying to repopulate the woods and in general create a relaxing beautiful and sustainable environment as well as a green tech incubator for scientists and entrepreneurs that want to do something for the world.
The owners speak English, French, Italian, Spanish and Catalan and are from a mix of countries. We love technology and art and the farm will hopefully reflect both.
