    This is not a business. What we do here does not generate money.
    I am looking for people who want to share this space and practice a new lifestyle, respectful of nature and its rhythms. All we will do is for the planet, to create a place where life is simple and full of abundance.

    We need a lot of help!

    The main idea is to gradually transform some spaces on the land, expand the cultivation area, make a community kitchen space and other things so that more people can join the community project.

    There are several basic tasks, such as maintaining the land, taking care of the fruit trees, collecting food, going to the source for water, cooking, etc.
    And on the other hand, we need to accumulate firewood for the winter, cut grass to cover cultivated areas, make mud to close holes in the cabins, collect reeds and whatever else comes up.


    Other tasks we can perform are the following:
    Trees: transplant, cut, graft, prune and sow. Uses: fruit, firewood, fertilizer, basketry, construction, ...
    Huerta: perform the tasks corresponding to each station. Plant, prepare land, collect, quilt, help neighbors, ...
    Build cabins with natural materials from the environment: willows, rye straw, hazel sticks, mud, ...
    Cooking, made of food (jams, vinegar, cider, ...)
    and everything that can help make this space a more friendly place with the environment and all its beings!

    Esto no es un negocio. De lo que hagamos aquí no se genera dinero.
    Buscamos personas que quieran compartir este espacio y practicar un nuevo estilo de vida, respetuoso con la naturaleza y sus ritmos. Todo lo que haremos es para el planeta, para crear un lugar en el que la vida sea sencilla y llena de abundancia.


    Necesitamos mucha ayuda!

    La idea principal es ir transformando algunos espacios en el terreno, ampliar la zona de cultivos, hacer un espacio de cocina comunitaria y otras cosas para que más personas se puedan unir al proyecto comunitario.

    Hay varias tareas básicas, como mantener el terreno, cuidar los frutales, recolectar alimentos, ir a la fuente a por agua, cocinar, etc.
    Y por otro lado, necesitamos acumular leña para el invierno, cortar hierba para cubrir zonas de cultivo, hacer barro para cerrar huecos en las cabañas, recolectar cañas y lo que vaya surgiendo.

    Otras tareas que podemos realizar son las siguientes:
    Árboles: transplantar, esquejar, injertar, podar y sembrar. Usos: fruta, leña, abono, cestería, construcción,...
    Huerta: realizar las labores correspondientes a cada estación. Sembrar, preparar terrenos, recolectar, acolchar, ayudar a vecinos, ...
    Construir cabañas con materiales naturales del entorno: sauces, paja de centeno, varas de avellano, barro, ...
    Cocinar, elaborados de alimentos (mermeladas, vinagre, sidra, ...)
    y todo lo que pueda ayudar a hacer de este espacio un lugar más amigable con el medioambiente y todos sus seres!

    The main land is a small edible forest with fruit trees and a vegetable garden.
    There are several holes for camping, a hammock and a hut made of pallets and mud.

    In this space we will try to reduce the environmental impact as much as possible, little by little it has been transformed into a place that is not very aggressive with the environment, reducing the consumption of electricity, gas, water,... there are still details to be polished.
    For cooking there is a very efficient oven and small stove that work with wood (nearby there is a small forest to collect dry branches fallen from the trees).
    To shower, water is heated on the stove itself, or with the sun.

    The food here is plant-based (No dairy, no eggs, no meat, no fish). We feed on vegetables collected in the area and some things such as legumes, cereals or oil we buy through a consumer cooperative. We can share meals or make them separately, improvising.
    The wastewater stays on the ground so it is better not to use chemical products in the bathroom (shampoo, toothpaste, etc). The use of toilet paper will be avoided, it is more hygienic to wash your bottom with water, apart from the environmental impact generated by the use of paper.

    El terreno principal es un pequeño bosque comestible con frutales y huerta.
    Hay varios huecos para acampar, una hamaca y una cabaña de palets y barro.

    En este espacio se intentará reducir todo lo posible el impacto ambiental, poco a poco se ha ido transformando en un lugar poco agresivo con el medio ambiente, reduciendo el consumo de electricidad, gas, agua,... faltan detalles por pulir.
    Para cocinar hay un horno y un pequeño hornillo muy eficientes que funcionan con madera (cerca hay un pequeño bosque para recolectar ramas secas caídas de los árboles).
    Para ducharnos se calienta agua en el mismo hornillo, o con el sol.

    La comida aquí está basada en vegetales (No lácteos, ni huevos ni carne ni pescado). Nos alimentamos de vegetales recolectados por la zona y algunas cosas como legumbres, cereales o aceite los compramos a través de una cooperativa de consumidores. Podemos compartir las comidas o hacerlas por separado, improvisando.
    Las aguas residuales se quedan en el terreno así que es mejor no utilizar productos químicos en el baño (champú, pasta de dientes, etc). Se evitará el uso de papel higiénico, es más higiénico lavarse el culito con agua, aparte del impacto ambiental que genera el uso de papel.
