 Min stay requested: at least a week

  • Description


    We are a family of four living on a finca. Our children are 9 and 6 years of age and Ivan and Assum are 41. We dedicate our time in growing medicinal plants and cultivating organic vegetables following the philosophy of permaculture. This is not a commercial project, we cultivate for personal use. We are interested in self sufficiency and natural therapies such as movement therapy and temasquales. We are also interested in improving our English (this text is translated by our friend! Our English is much more simple). Therefore we would like to host people who are native speakers or have a good level of English.
    Tasks are variable. Many small projects around the house and grounds. Hanging out with the kids, cooking, feeling free to start projects. Lovers of using recycled materials are welcome as everything is done only with what we have around.

  • Help


    We are interested in hosting people who are keen to learn and who feel part of our project. We give preference to families or couples. At the moment the most important task for the volunteers is to help with our medicinal garden. We need help with taking out weeds and cleaning the general area. Another task is preparing firewood and reconstructing the shed where we keep the wood. We would also like the volunteers to help preparing food and helping around the house. Most importantly, we would like to host child friendly people :)

  • Accommodation


    We live on a farm that is surrounded by forests and a river. The farm has two houses and a mobile home. The mobile home is reserved for the volunteers. There is also a yurt you can sleep in. There are two double beds, living room area and a sink in the mobile home. Nearby there is a basin where the volunteers can swim. Hot shower is available in one of the houses. There is plenty of vegetable based food and fruit mainly from our own garden. We also have a constant supply of organic eggs from our own chickens.

The nearest lively village, Santa Coloma de Queralt, with shops, bars and and restaurants is 14km away. We live by the river Gaia.There are many paths and riverside for walking. There are some walls suitable for climbing. You can swim in the river or in the pond. There is a donkey on the farm who you can try to tame :) There is no public transport but the families are keen to show the local area to the visitors. During the summer there are many local festivals in the area.
