  • Description


    We are a family of four members (father, aged 51, teacher and mother, aged 51, doctor) with two kids of 10 and 14 years old, living in Lleida (Spain) . We are close to finish our project of our new bioclimatic house in the countryside, 3 Km away from the city center and we need some help with the finishing works in this eco-building project.
    We are member of the Lleida time bank and we are involved in some volunteering tasks in our town.
    We offer accomodation in a caravan, next to the ose or in a room inside the house, with all the kitchen and toilet falicilies, including all the food and also the vegetables from our big vegetable garden, bicicles to move around. You can help us for about 4 hours a day and have your free weekends for excursions, either in our area or to Barcelona (accessible easily by bus or train at very reduced prices for about 8 euros). Help with teaching english to our two kids is welcomed also. We still are not living there because we are now finishing the last works but we are planning to move there very soon when i will be finished.
