    Description

    Long term volunteers needed!

    The intention is to create an experimentation and training center of permaculture that promotes a sustainable way of live.

    Cecile, with the help of all the persons that comes to participate in this project, takes care of her land of olive, almonds, carobs and fig trees from spring 2015. For the moment we have 2 cats, 1 female dog and some chickens. We had bees for some time and we are preparing to host some donkeys and sheeps some day, while planting gardens, a food forest and rebuilding and building the necessary infrastructure for the project.
    There is the main house, with my room and the office, an other bedroom, the kitchen, a future bathroom and an activity room. There is also an other small house/bed room at 100m, a yurta and a pool with fishes and soon some plants.

    The long land follow a nearly all year wild torrent, that serves of biological corridor between the two Natural Parks of Terres de l'Ebre (Ebro Delta and Els Ports). The land is crossed by a canal with water from Tosca's springs and by the dry Xerta-Senia canal, in which you can connect by bike with the Green Way of the Val de Zafan. There's also climbing routes and a via ferrata at a few kilometers.

    Se busca principalmente voluntari@s de larga duración!

    El objetivo es de crear un centro de experimentación y divulgación de la permacultura que promueva técnicas y hábitos de vida más sostenibles.

    Cecile, con la ayuda de todas las personas que vienen a participar en el proyecto, cuida de su finca de olivos , almendros, algarrobos y higueras desde la prmavera 2015. Por el momento, tenemos dos gatos, una perra y gallinas, y tuvimos abejas por algun tiempo. Nos estamos preparando para acoger algun dia unas ovejas y un burro, mientras plantamos huertos y un bosque comestible y renovamos y construimos las infraestructuras necessarias para el proyecto.
    Hay una casa principal, con mi habitacion y la oficina, otro dormitorio, la cocina, un futur baño y una sala multiuso. Hay tambien otra casita/dormitorio a 100m, una yurta y una piscina con peces y pronto algunas plantas aquaticas.

    La finca sigue un barranco salvaje con agua casi todo el año, que sirve de corredor biológico entre los dos parques naturales de les Terres de l'Ebre : els Ports i el Delta de l'Ebre. Está atravesada por una acequia con aguas del Tosca y bordea el canal seco Xerta-Senia, con el cual se puede conectar en bici con la Vía Verde de la Val de Zafan. Hay tambien vias de escalada y una via ferrata a pocos kilometros.
