    Description

    Hello, we are Josep, Alba and our 3 daughters Amèlia (6 years old), Duna (4 years old) and Selma (5 months old). We live in the countryside in the middle of nature in a self-sufficient house and we dedicate ourselves to organic and biodynamic agriculture in Nulles (Tarragona), next to our house we have the winery where we make organic and biodynamic wines from the grapes that we grow In the farm we cultivate vineyards, almond trees, olive trees, hazelnuts, fruit trees, carob trees, cereal, a vegetable garden and we also have some animals (donkey, dog and chickens). We are looking for people who like children who want to learn about life in the country. We are people who really enjoy life in the country, and we like to share knowledge with other people. The help we need from the workawayers is for the house, the girls, the fruit trees and the garden, all for our own consumption. We have a fully equipped mobile home, ideal for 2 people (although it also has a sofa bed for a possible other person) next to our house. Our language of communication at home is Catalan, although the girls can understand Spanish.

    En la finca cultivamos viña, almendros, olivos, avellanos, frutales, algarrobos, cereal, un huerto y tambien tenemos algunos animales (burro, perro y gallinas).
    Buscamos personas que les gusten los niños con ganas de aprender de la vida en el campo. Somos personas que disfrutamos mucho de la vida en el campo, y nos gusta compartir conocimientos con otra gente.
    La ayuda que necesitamos de los workawayers es para la casa, las niñas, los frutales y la huerta, todo para el autoconsumo.

    We are looking for people (we believe that a couple or two friends is better, since they can have more independence), wanting to enjoy and learn from family life in the countryside. All the help we request in the field are crops for family self-consumption. The help we need is in the garden (for self-consumption by the family and workawayers), help in the field with fruit trees (for self-consumption by the family and workawayers), carpentry help to assemble a platform and other wooden structures , helps with the animals, helps in various jobs for the maintenance of the farm and domestic tasks such as cooking, cleaning and tidying the house, folding clothes and occasionally playing with the girls. For us, the ideal workawayers are people with healthy life habits, who like to cook, the tract with children and who are willing to live in an isolated environment where the closest town (Valls) that has services is about 4 kilometers away. . We are looking for people as autonomous as possible, aware that where they are going to live is an isolated farmhouse. We are looking for flexible people, aware that life in the country does not have the same comforts as in a city, energetic, willing to work in the country and positive. Preferably for a minimum of 1 month (it is important for us to make a good adaptation so that the coexistence flows well).

    Para nosotros los workawayers ideales son personas con habitos de vida saludables, que les guste cocinar, el tracto con los niños y que esten dispuestos a vivir en un entorno aislado donde el pueblo mas cerca (Valls) que dispone de servicios esta a unos 4 quilómetros. Buscamos personas lo mas autonomas posible, concientes que donde van a vivir es una masia aislada.
    Buscamos personas flexibles, conscientes que la vida en el campo no tiene las mismas comodidades que en una ciudad, energicas, con ganas de trabajar en el campo y positivas.
