  • Description

    Description

    Would you like to take part in the early stages of a project in one of the most beautiful and energizing/stimulating corners of the Montseny Natural Park? Located in a fabulous/enchanting natural environment…

    The project in in the very beginning, no bussiness activity. By the moment only the eco vegetable garden, the aromatics herbs and the fruit trees are ready,
    No customers, no clients by the moment, only us, some friends somedays, and the volunters , and Carles and Irene, helping with the stronger and speciallist garden tasks.

    We will share working time, delicious meals, respect and happy moments living together and exchange around our passions: Nature, walks, Samadeva Yoga, Malkovsky dance, music, silence and everything you and persons here would like to share.

    The future project , 6/8 months, consists of the creation of a space for groups, deeply connected with nature, the forest, and the cultivation of aromatic and medicinal plants, and the sharing , curses , sesions / formations of Samadeva knowledge , Malkovsky and Isadorienne dances (Isadora Duncan) , Ikebana, Bio construction, etc,
    Health, living together, beauty, ecological and spiritual awareness are the values that have guided this project since its conception. And we would now like to invite you to participate in its implementation.

    The former farmhouse (Catalan rural house) and its adjoining buildings are situated in a beautiful and secluded mountainous environment, next to the Montseny Natural Park, 30 km from the Costa Brava, in the province of Girona.

    We need help with aromatic fields. the renovation and decoration of buildings (according to sustainable building criteria), the creation of green spaces, the preparation of team meals ,general maintenance, big vegetal garden, and after some months , the design of a website.

    We are looking for people with some knowledge and experience in:

    - ecological gardening and prunning fruit trees.
    - carpentry,
    - Plumbing-
    installation of solar showers and dry toilets,
    - internal and external maintenance,
    - the kitchen,
    - Social networks and the web in order to create an on-line agenda to monitor the progress of the work and to report on all the experiences of the site.

    Or versatile and adaptable people.

    The time of work will usually be 4 hours a day, 5 days a week but can be adapted to the hazards of the moment, tasks , and people. We dedicate aswell 30/40 min day to the comun spaces, and diary living tasks ( preparing fire in winter, cleaning entrance, mainteining swiming pool than all of us can use , in summer, bathrooms, putting order in freeze, etc). In summer, in the hotest time, we beguin soon in the morning. Rest of the year we go with the sun.

    If the persons present want and decide,, also a optional day-to-day time to share knowledge/experiences around yoga, dance and all the arts or others questions that you or the team would like to share.

    The rooms are single, double or triple, with shared bathroom. We really try to ofter individual if you are alone, but sometimes could not be posible.
    The stays we prefer between 1 and 2 months. If you would like to stay less contac us and propose aswell,
    We stablish a 7/10 days trial time to feel both parts feel comfortable and happy with the exchange.
    You will need to have your own travel assurance or similars, (Seguridad Social, for example)

    Important: We are in the mountain, 15 km of the civilitation,, living with rural timminig and enjoying a lot the sound of nature, a kind of silence. .Some persons feels the time here like a nature-retreat. I you feel bored quick not going to the bars, or not going to the town, or cities, probably this is not your place
    Although we respect individual freedom, alcohol and other drugs are not welcome.
    Our biggest wish is that this experience that we will share together will be unforgettable!
    Lluisa, Carles, Oriol,, and Rex & Lhasa, and near...Julia too.
