    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    If you have arrived here you will have realized that we are still in the process of learning, if this has an end, therefore we will walk together through this process and grow together with each situation.
    Specifically we will learn the bases of permaculture in social concepts as well as the fair distribution of surpluses or concepts related to agriculture and bioconstruction.

    When is a situation of rehabilitation of a house we will also touch and we will get dirty with different lime mortars, with electric circuits, plumbing, bioclimatic technology, custom made furniture and a long etcetera.
    With regard to land management experiences, we will treat different types of animal plants and water systems so that each space can develop a great influence on the biodiversity, since it meets the needs of humans.
    We will also learn about the trades related to the hospitality sector and the public attention.

    In short, we will discover together how to move towards a much more inclusive, balanced and permanent society.

    Si habéis llegado aquí os habréis dado cuenta de que estamos todos en un proceso de aprendizaje continuo, es por esta razón que queremos andar y crecer juntos en este proceso.

    Al estar en una situación de rehabilitación tocaremos y nos ensuciaremos con cal, arcilla, y lo que sea necesario, trabajaremos con circuitos eléctricos, en la huerta, con los animales, con la fontanería, haremos mobiliario a mano, decoraremos la casa y sus exteriores…

    Somos gente que nos gusta movernos y conocer a otras personas, proyectos y formas de hacer. Nos gusta compartir experiencias y opiniones con los voluntarios y la gente que se cruza en nuestras vidas.

    Creemos que necesitamos ayuda en muchos ámbitos y que podemos ofrecer una buena experiencia donde aprendamos unos de otros.

    En definitiva descubriremos juntos como andar hacia una sociedad mucho más justa, inclusiva, equilibrada y permanente.

    We have the privilege of living in a very large space, with lots of land (that translates to a lot of work), a large house and other spaces that require many reforms, cleaning and organization. We have many projects in mind, and we can always think of some more ideas. Of course, we can not cover everything we have dreamed about alone.

    Currently there are ongoing projects such as; the rehabilitation of the house, the cleaning and the adaptation of the exterior spaces, the garden, ecotourism (rehabilitation and rental of caravans destined to the dismantling), ecological beekeeping (for the improvement of the biological content, of the biodiversity of the zone and the pollination of crops), a space for socialization.
     
    With the great variety of current and future projects, we offer volunteers the possibility of adapting their tasks to their knowledge and of expanding them in whatever they want. There is a great freedom when doing work.

    Tenemos el privilegio de vivir en un espacio muy grande, con mucho terreno (eso se traduce a mucho trabajo), una gran casa y otros espacios que requieren muchas reformas, limpieza y organización. Tenemos muchos proyectos en mente, y siempre se nos ocurre alguna que otra idea. Claro está que no podemos abarcar solos todo lo que hemos soñado.

    Actualmente hay proyectos en marcha como; la rehabilitación de la casa, la limpieza y la adecuación de los espacios exteriores, el huerto, ecoturismo (rehabilitación y alquiler de caravanas destinadas al desguace), apicultura ecológica (para la mejora del contenido biológico, de la biodiversidad de la zona y la polinización de los cultivos), un espacio de socialización.

    Con la gran variedad de proyectos actuales y futuros, ofrecemos a los voluntarios la posibilidad de adaptar sus tareas a sus conocimientos y de ampliarlos en lo que quieran. Hay una gran libertad a la hora de realizar el trabajo.

    Accommodation

    Due to the current situation of the house (a lot of internal reform is missing) we can only offer accommodation in tents that will always be provided with a nice mattress so that you can rest in conditions.

    In the interior of the house we have a bathroom and a shower, a kitchen and a large dining room. We have a leisure area to drink with friends, a space for rest and study with a computer, a work table, sofas and the library area. There is also a laundry option if necessary.

    There are some large outdoor spaces where you can relax and enjoy the unique places offered by the Natural Park of the Volcanic Zone of La Garrotxa, very close to the house there are rivers, river pools and incredible landscapes.

    Debido a la situación actual de la casa (falta mucha reforma interior) sólo podemos ofrecer alojamiento en tiendas de campaña que siempre estarán provistas de un colchón agradable para que se pueda descansar en condiciones.

    En el interior de la casa disponemos de un baño y una ducha, una cocina y un gran comedor. Tenemos una zona de ocio para beber con los amigos, un espacio de descanso y estudio con un ordenador, una mesa de trabajo, sofás y la zona de la biblioteca. También hay opción de lavandería si fuera necesario.

    Hay unos grandes espacios exteriores donde poder relajarse y disfrutar de los parajes únicos que nos ofrece el Parque Natural de la Zona Volcánica de la Garrotxa, muy cerca de la casa hay ríos, pozas y paisajes increíbles.
