Family project in a Masia (farm house) from the XIV century, in which we have lived for more than 16 years in attunement with nature and its cycles.
The house is totally off-grid!!!
We have bio vegetable gardens, in permaculture way.
We also have farm animals like hens, geese, turkeys and some friendly dogs and cats!
We make a sustainable management of the forest, taking advantage of the firewood and medicinal plants it provides.
We do soaps and natural cosmetics for own consumption.
Personal development activities are carried out in the house throughout the year ( we love Temaskales).
The House is near Castellterçol 70km away from Barcelona. (1,20h by bus from Bcn)
Why is good for volunteers ...?
-Surrounded by forests and mountains
-Without villages in sight, or electric lines!
-Fireplace in the house
