  • Description

    Description

    Our project is a vegan auto-sustainable farm in Catalunya, Spain, where we practice biodynamic and regenerative agriculture. It is situated on a natural sanctuary at the foot of red mountains and blue skies with 5 hectares of olive and almond trees. Agriculture is at the heart of our project and our goal is to feed our community directly from the land.
    We belief in the power of a plant based diet so all our meals are made by organic, local and vegan products.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Volunteers can expect to learn everyday from our team as well as friends and teachers who come to share their knowledge. Volunteers will learn about the principles of biodynamic agriculture and its methods, as well as other different techniques to regenerate the land like Paul Gautchi Back to Eden techniques, how to make "Terra Preta" as the amazone native people did, the importance of the electrical conductivity in the land and many more...
    As an exchange we are willing to learn new methods or new ideas from the workawayers because our farm is created by the contribution of each of our visitors.

    Our farm is built and run on the love and sweat of a global community of conscious volunteers. Each month we host 2 to 3 volunteers from around the world. We kindly ask that volunteers are 24 years old or older.

    Following the principles of workaway, volunteers contribute 5 hours of their time in exchange for room and board. In reality we exchange so much more from ideas to stories to magic moments on our land.

    Daily schedule for volunteers:
    9:00 Meet in kitchen for morning tasks
    9:30 Eat breakfast as a community
    10:00- 15:00 Volunteers work together in teams under the guidance of Juan's agricultural projects which includes our byodinamic garden, green house, medicine plant garden and fuit tree forest.
    15:00 Lunch as a community
    16:00-20:00 Private time as you choose
    21:00 Dinner as a community
