  • Description


    Hi and welcome to our humble finca in Catalunya (Malla). Our family consists of 4 people, me, my husband and 2 sons of which one is helping us at the finca and the other is studying in Barcelona. We have started a permaculture project in Girona ( Sant Joan Les Fonts) in the mountains of Garrotxa (a beautiful volcanic area in the North West of Spain) and in Malla (province of Barcelona).

    We are at the beginning stages and need hands!!

    Hands to help us around the house and in the garden. Someone who is handy😁, for several small projects, such as constructing a chicken coop, Repairing 2 caravans, building wooden platforms for tents, and Planting and harvesting medicinal plants, trees and veggies.
    Furthermore, we need hands to help with planting and harvesting of the fruits and herbs that grow on our land in Sant Joan les fonts.

    We offer a beautiful small house which we call " La Casita" which has a double bedroom, fully equipped bathroom, kitchen, a living room, wifi, an outside private area, in a nutshell, a comfortable small house of app. 40m2 with heating in the winter. It has Wifi, so working away is also possible.

    On the property we have our Masia where we live and also an apartment where the family stays when they visit, but also is available for more workawayers. We have 3 dogs ( very lovely and kind) and a bunch of chickens.

    We live very close to Vic, a beautiful medieval town in the Provence of Barcelona, which is only 3 min away from us by car. We can pick you up from the train/bus station in Vic.
