During the last year we have bought some land in a rural area 10 minutes drive from Vigo. We have almost one hectare between forest and meadow, in a very quiet environment, where water abounds. We dream of building a small community that is as self-sufficient as possible. We are currently working on the development of infrastructures (yurts, dry toilets, rocket oven, workshop...) and the organic part (vegetable garden, greenhouse, edible forest...). Long term we also intend to develop facilities where we can produce processed products (specially fermented food!). Whenever possible using products of our own harvest or wild ones.
Help with Eco Projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
We have experience in many fields that we like to share: cooking, fermented food, carpentry, organic farming, permaculture, traditional crafts, collecting edible mushrooms, wild edible plants,...
We are looking for energetic and enthusiastic people! The main tasks to develop will be gardening, bio-construction, animal care and functions of the day to day of life in community. You would be asked to work 4 to 5 hours per day. Depending on the season, some garden jobs may require getting up early to avoid hot hours of the day. If you are not an early bird maybe this is not your place.

For now we have a total of four yurts. Three of them work as individual homes for the people living here permanently (Ana, Tomás and Vento). The fourth yurt is working as a common space where we cook, eat and spend time together. For the worm season we have a build a big tent with three mattresses for volunteers, we believe three people can sleep there comfortably.
We really want people that come to enjoy and have a good time while they stay with us, so we think is really important to keep a good and fluid communication at all times.
