    Description

    Hola!
    We are a boy and a girl starting a Community that wants to live in a sustainable way while helping others.
    The aim is to set a friendly and committed environment where we can live together in an ecological way and, at the same time, offer the house to others, so we can all teach and learn, offer and receive, share and enjoy.

    All ideas would be considered, but for the moment we thought of opening the house to the neighborhood and travelers. We will host projects related to peace, justice, ecology, equality, art, culture, technology, crafts, healthy life, ... and much more!



    We can also learn Spanish, Catalan, English, Italian, and your own language! We will cook vegan (or vegetarian) food, help in the urban garden, visit other projects, meet other people, play board games, do sports, go to the beach and mountains, watch movies and documentaries, read, do yoga and meditation, collaborate in developing an online volunteering project, fix bikes, bake bread or whatever you want to do in your spare time.

    The house is in the town center but close to nature, in Valls (Tarragona, Catalunya, Spain). Valls is a small city with a little bit of everything, and a lot of options regarding ecological life, alternative projects, culture, gastronomy, library, theaters, cinema, shops, sports, ... Near Prades mountains and climbing spots like Siurana, Valls is easy to reach by plane+train, bus or car (90Km away from Barcelona/airport, 25Km away from Tarragona/Reus/airport). Maybe I can pick you up from one of these places.

    The house has 4 floors and a terrace, 5 bedrooms, bathroom, hot water, kitchen, living room, parking for bikes, WiFi, washing machine, ... We're providing beds, food, resources, safety and everything we can, for you all to be comfortable (but please remember that we will try to keep an ecological and sustainable way of life).

    We will learn and share ways to take care of our physical and mental health, help each other, keep an open mind, cooperate, practice languages, exchange cultures and explore the world through our own experiences.

    Looking forward to hearing from you and welcoming you!
    Max and Andrea

    Help

    The house is old and it needs some arrangements and adapting. The help that we need is to make the house ready, by decorating and fixing the spaces. We would love to share our knowledge in DIY (Do-It-Yourself) and much more, and of course, learn from you!

    We will be both physically and mentally working (designing the tasks and performing them). No previous skills are required, but a positive mindset and an open mind to learn and work with hands. We will teach everything we know, and learn from you what we don't. No matter your language, we will manage to communicate. No matter your age or gender, your country or culture; we will get along through respect and empathy!
