  • Description


    Welcome to Waterland!

    Pure forest full of wildlife, sparkling rivers with amazing swimming pools in the middle of rocky mountains, wild herbs and mushrooms, we are living in the most green area in Spain, Catalunya. 

    We are a big family (mother (Swiss, 29), father (Italian, 37), baby (mixed;), 16month), uncel (Holland,44) from another mother and always many friends) living together. So far, we rebuild one of the ruins, and there is 2 more to build in the near future. One of us is carpenter, another soil specialist and the third a botanist gardener. 

    The garden is big and can nourish us during summer. We always like to make experiments with compost (teas), natural fertilizers, rare veggie species, microgrganisms, wood chips and so on. The recently planted fruit trees will provide most fruits in the future also. 

    Our vision is to create a space for eco living and building, to give courses about eco construction, soil and herbs.
