My husband and I have lived in this beautiful area of Catalunia for 15 years. We harvest olives almonds and carobs on 2 organic farms. We have 7dogs 2 cats, ducks , chickens and 1 pig and 8goats. We are approx 4kms from the nearest village of Xerta which is in the Ebro valley alongside the fantastic river Ebro. We live off grid but have a solar system which provides us with power, English TV and Wi Fi. We are also close to the "Via Verde" which is a cycle track of over aprox 100kms. We have a pool which will prove refreshing after day. If you enjoy walking climbing or just peace and quiet then this is the place to be. We ask that helpers communicate and reply either way when first making contact. The work during the spring summer months involves animal care, wood cutting and general help on the farm inc some gardening and small construction work. We also milk our goats and produce cheese which we could teach you.
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
We live off grid and pratice permaculture. 99 percent of our waste is recycled. Water is limited so showers are every other day and we try to live in an eco friendy way.
We need help to keep on top of things on both farms especially in the harvest season, but we have building projects too, and our ever increasing animal population take a lot of our time and energy. Currently we need help with painting inside and out, clearing the land ready for harvest (strimming etc) pruning trees and cutting wood, harvesting carobs and almonds and later in November olives, as well as everyday care of our animals.
