  • Description

    Description

    5 years ago 3 men had an idea. Self-sufficiency. In order to escape the hectic everyday life, 3 years ago a piece of land was bought and the realisation of the idea started. 25 hectares with 3 houses, a big garden and hundreds of Olive trees and lots of space you can expect at our place. The planting of fruit trees and the expansion of the garden are also planned.

    Our Utopia is located near the cozy place Flix, which is located in the sunny mountains in southern Catalonia. Fishing in the river Ebro, canoeing, hiking, climbing or mountain biking in the mountains, but also just relaxing, there will be no shortage of leisure activities.

    Kind of help:
    - Cutting and cleaning olive trees for next season harvest
    -cleaning the forest from broken wood after snow fall last winter (making fire wood)
    - Animal care and feeding (dogs, sheep, goats and chicken)
    - taking care of our big garden
    - Help with preparing meals and processing the vegetables
    - and many many more little things ;-)
