    Update 21-05-2024

    We are looking for 4/6 helpers at the time in the months July, August and September.
    We prefer non smokers.
    Since we have had many volunteers already, we have noticed it’s most fun for volunteers to come and leave around the same time, to get to know each other and form a team. Also, if everyone comes at once we can introduce you to the farm all at once, establish living rules and finding out a way we’d like to share our time and space in community meetings. (around the pizza oven, with some guitar music perhaps..)

    We therefore ask you to stay at least three weeks, preferably more, and come in a certain slot:

    Slot 1: 6th of July till 6th of August
    Slot 2: 6th of Augst till 6th of September
    Slot 3: 6th of September till 6th of October

    In your title please specify when you’d like to come
    Example: “Mar wants to come 6th of July till the 6th of August”


    Hello people!
    Here Mar, Sandra and Adrià.

    In July Mar will take care of the project since Adria and Sandra will be on parental leave with their newborn. In August and September you will be working with Adria.

    Mar is a free-style carpenter, likes to farm and do creative things, likes to dance contact improv and is a climber and hiker.. has lots of recommendations of where to go on your free days.

    Adria studied biology and always worried for wild ecosystems and biodiversity conservation, for few years I volunteered in many biological studies around the world, but then I realised that since Food Industry and Capitalism are the main cause of most of the really concerning environmental problems the only battle was against them.

    So I did remember that my family had an old farm from the grandparents who nobody was using and I did study a master on organic farming. And some introductory course to permaculture too.

    Here we are now, in a big old house, 8 hectareas and the animals; the 3 cows, the 80 hens, the 4 dogs and 3 cats...

    And by the way with some friends we created an organization and started to prospect, interview old farmers and create a seed bank and traditional trees nursery. WE HAVE HUNDREDS OF SEEDS IN THE SEEDBANK OF THIS HOUSE!!!

    The projects in the farm are :
    - 0.8 ha veggies garden which take most of the work!
    - 100 young sweet fruit trees and grapes ( fig trees, peers...)

    - 20 almond trees
    - 27 small pistachio trees
    - 60 olive trees
    - cereal crops
    - feeding/taking care of cows and hens
    - milking the cows and makig cottage cheese and iogurts (not in summer)
    - Moving fences for cows to have fresh grass
    - in september the cows will give birth !

    We are 7 people living here right now (two volunteers, 5 workers) but in the summer everyone wants to go on holidays and we need your help! There will be 3 rooms for volunteers to stay of which two with a double bed and one a shared room with 4 single beds, there is also place to camp outside and the tree house..
    In summer we start early (6 am) but have two breakfast breaks ;-) and cook lunch for each other alternately.
    Since we might be many, we ask you to actively involve in Karma yoga (doing things for others: such as cleaning the compost toilet, the kitchen or a specific area..) and ask everyone to respect each others needs (to be clean, not leave your clothes lying around, if you are a smoker only smoke in the designated area, etc.

    Volunteers work 5 days a week, 5 hours a day. If we are many we might ask to alternate the free days so that everyone can take a day off (Mar and Adria included 😉).
    We will teach you how to take care of cows, calfs, chicken, a vegetable garden in Spanish summer.. It will be fun!

  • Ayuda


    Mainly farming/gardening help which means weeding, harvesting, seedling, planting, watering...

    Sometimes I also need help with some construction projects. If you have special skills in construction (laying tiles, construction laying concrete or creating garages) please mention this in your message.

    We expect from volunteers to help in the usual domestic tasks ( sharing the cooking, washing dishes or some other usual tasks)

    In summer we use to wake up really early to avoid the the hottest hours outside
