Hi, I am Antonia. Next september (2018) we, my husband and me and friends, and a few strawbale instructors are going to build a straw bale house just outside the cute little village Macanet de Cabrenys at the foot of the Pyrenees in Catalunya, 2 hours away from the Costa Brava. It is going to be a meeting center for music, art and natural healing. There will be two vegan cooks and a yoga/salsa dance instructor, who will be there also.
We are looking for strong and enthusiastic people to help with making the straw walls and with making the reciprocal wooden roof.
We are Dutch and Macanet de Cabrenys is my dreamplace because of the nice people, the beautiful nature, the pureness, and the clean water, which you can take from natural sources in and around the village. That's why two years ago I bought a beautiful piece of land just outside the village. Going to the village takes you 10 minutes walking down the hill. There is a nice central pub in village center, a swimming pool and much more.
Let me know if you want to participate.
