    Description

    We are Uriel (Argentina), Alba (Spain) and Alma, our 7month dougther. We are a family living at the countryside, near a small village called Vila-rodona, 30km from Tarrgona and the Mediterranean sea. One lovely dog and many of the wildlife of the forest live with us. We love nature. We practice Ayurvedic Medicine and Naturopathy at the farm. We are begining a family project with the goal of be able to grow up our doughter at home with the help of our jobs taking place at our home. Offering courses and stages open to everybody. A kind of healthy and consciousness homestay.

    Eleven years ago we came here and started building our own house. The first part of the house is now completely finished. We rely a lot on nature. A lot of our food comes from our garden and forest. As well as our natural medicines and wild protected honey. The house is almost fully solar powered. We use solar power for both electricity (there´s no connection to the grid) and as the primary source of heating we use wood fire. We produce our own olive oil, fresh marmalades from the fruit trees, almonds, bread, home cleaning products and herbal medicinal preparations.

    We appreciate volunteers with love of growing vegetables, bio construction, sustainable energies, preservation the environment, water saving systems and specially love for nature and healthy and conscious relationships.

    Our actual project can offer all kinds of farm activities like: the whole process from sowing vegetables, painting the place constructed, gardening, construction the chicken coop...There is also some small construction works to do. Also keep the place tidy and clean for the best sharing.

    We speak: English, Catalan and Spanish. Normally we'll work 4 to 5 hours per day. Often we will start the day with activities like planting, sowing, weeding, harvesting, gathering, collecting woods, building, cooking….

    Meals are everybody for itself, because we have to adjust to our daughter's meal schedules. However, some times we can plan for eating together. If possible, we would like you to let us taste some of your cultural food too.

    In spring and summer we have place for 2 volunteers.

    Welcome to join the project of life.
