Come and help and learn on our family farm. We are not a business, we are a family of three living in a small country house on a big piece of land in hills of nothern Spain. We live here fully off the grid and try to live of the land. All our energy comes from our solar panels and we collect rainwater. We have vegatable gardens, fruit trees and . We also have some olive fields where we try to make our own olive oil.

UN sustainability goals this host is trying to achieve
Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
We live in an area where there are not many foreigners and Spanish and a Catalan dialect are the main languages. It's a chance to see the real Spain in a rural location. There is plenty of opportunity to practice Spanish if that is what a workawayer wants.
Workawayers will experience a slower pace of life in stunning surroundings. We have plenty of wildlife to see, such as hoopoos, polecats, eagles and foxes. In late spring we hear nightingales! There are many local fiestas normally which if you want you can get involved with too!
