  • Description


    Hi! I'm Bego and I'm rebuilding my dad's old stone farm. It's a huge construction (the walls, the roof and half of it already done) and we need experienced people to help us finish the rest.

    This is a space that focuses in feminism and works to help women to grow and work in their projects.

    We are rebuilding an ancient farm (more than 500 years old), creating a space with the philosophy of permaculture and care and growth as women.
    We are looking for architects, architecture students, building engineers and alike.

    It is necessary to have some basic knowledge of Spanish as the host does not speak any English. It is possible to communicate by email in English, the daughter, who speaks English, will arrange everything with you, but she's traveling, so she'll only be there from August to December.
