  • Description


    Hello, my name is Carles. I'm from Barcelona and living for 5 years now in Menorca, a place that I love. It's a beautiful island full of charming and colorful beaches, lovely caves and a lot of trekking possibilities. This Unesco Biosphere reserve is a perfect place for nature lovers.
    Two years ago I bought a lovely typical house in the countryside near to a small village called Alaior. This house is surrounded by a big terrain full of olive trees and some other varieties. At the moment we are cleaning different areas, creating step by step new space for an orchard, a vegetable garden and some charming corners.
    In summer we have different work because of the hot temperatures and we spend more time outdoors.
    After the summer we take time to maintain the garden, repair and rebuild things or create new ideas. For example this year we are creating an area for different fruit trees like apple, peach, prune...
    I recently had my first volunteer and it was a really good experience, we enjoyed to work and live together. I like the idea of cultural and language exchange, so it was always a pleasure when I was traveling and now I'm happy to share my project with other travelers.
    The idea for the project is to create a peaceful place on a sustainable way, getting our own food, our own solar energy and learning to appreciate the nature.
