    Description

    Hi Hi!!!
    We are a great family! Elena, Lucas and little Lür! That is now almost 4 years old !!! Fofana also lives with us, who is from the Ivory Coast and has been part of the family for two years, almost since she arrived in Spain, and a handful of animals (3 dogs, many cats, some chickens, 2 donkeys and 4 sheep).
    It is a farmhouse, the old typical Catalan country houses, dating from the 13th century. We try to live respecting the environment and leaving the world better than what we found.
    We are very interested in permaculture, education and the values ​​of community life. We really like to do things ourselves !!! We like to share moments and live together. That is why we always try to do the housework and chores together.
    The farm has many hectares of land, fields and forests and when it is rainy season a small river.
    We have a natural pool, which in summer is fantastic!
    One of the projects of the house is the cultivation of organic vegetables, vegetables, cereals, legumes, for sale.
    Another project is a respectful parenting space for young children.
    Our house is 3km from the train station, 20 minutes by car from the beach, Barcelona at 1 hour and Girona at half an hour.

    We are looking for volunteers to help us with the different jobs around the house; in the garden, animals, repairs, constructions, DIY, gardening ... at the same time it is very important for us to be able to share with the people from work away and that they be one of the house, thus being able to share, learn from other cultures and ways of seeing the world and life.
    That is why we would like people who speak Spanish well to come, to be able to communicate well, people who want to work and get their hands dirty hahaha, who like children and animals, (the only requirement that Lur asks is that play with him at times😅😅) and have the desire to live in community.

    Hola hola!!!
    Somos una gran familia! Elena, Lucas y el pequeño Lür! Que ahora tiene casi 4años!!! Tambien vive con nosotros Fofana, que es de costa de marfil y hace dos años que forma parte de la familia, casi desde que llego a españa, y un puñado de animales(3 perros, muchos gatos, algunas gallinas, 2 burros y 4ovejas).
    Es una masia, las casas tipicas antiguas de campo de Catalunya, data del s XIII. Intentamos vivir respetando el entorno y dejando el mundo mejor de lo que encontramos.
    Nos interesa mucho la permacultura, la educación y los valores de la vida en comunidad. Nos gusta mucho hacer las cosas nosotros mismos!!! Nos gusta compartir momentos y vivir conjuntamente. Por eso siempre intentamos hacer los trabajos y tareas de la casa de forma conjunta.
    La finca dispone de muchas Ha de terreno, campos y bosques y cuando es época de llubias de un pequeño rio.
    Tenemos una piscina natural, que en verano es fantastica!
    Uno de los proyectos de la casa és el cultivo de verduras, hortalizas, cereales, legumbres ecológicas, para la venta.
    Otro proyecto és un espacio de crianza respetuosa para niños/as pequeños.
    Nuestra casa está a 3km de la estación de tren, a 20 minutos en coche de la playa, Barcelona a 1 hora y Girona a media hora.

    Nosotros estamos buscando voluntarios y voluntarias para que nos ayuden en los diferentes trabajos de la casa; en el huerto, animales, reparaciones, construcciones, bricolage, jardineria... al mismo tiempo es muy importante para nosotros poder compartir con las personas de work away y que sean uno más de la casa, así poder compartir, aprender de otras culturas y maneras de ver el mundo y la vida.
    Por eso nos gustaria que pudieran venir personas que hablen bien el español, para poder comunicarnos bien, gente con ganas de trabajar y ensuciarse las manos jejejej, que les gusten los niños/as y los animales, (el unico requisito que pide Lur es que jueguen con el a ratos😅😅)y que tengan ganas de vivir en comunidad.
