    From our site you can visit the amazing mountain of Montserrat, deep salt mines from Cardona are abailable to visit, romanic architecture, or swim-kayaking in a winter you can also ski.

    Volunteer help is needed for involved and engaged people, but also we can offer some training also in construction tecnologies and materials if you have some previous experience (not from zero). The work will consist in sustainable and traditional construction , so knowledge of maintinance works, carpintery, etc..., would be very helpful.

    Another posibility is to colaborate in the Natural horsemanship (if you have experience), you can help to dress in a Natural way the horses, we are quite beginers on that field.

    Also we'll need colaboration in the architecture studio, if you'r interested, we use to work on traditional and heritage architecture, in Barcelona but in countryside as well.

    Finally, we need help in the vegetable garden, forest, trees, plants....., help with the chikens, etc... also a car or tractor mechanic could be very helpful!

    We expect hard work and flexibility. We offer 3 meals a day. If volunteers want snacks and drinks between meals, they need to buy them themselves, there's a fridge for that purpose. On days off we don't provide free meals, just the accommodation and also the possibility to cook themselves their meals, but everything can be spoken...

    We have internet but, limited, please not depend on it too much....enjoy the nature ;)
