My husband and I recently moved to Catalonia and bought a Finca. We have eighteen dogs, at the moment, and a cat, so anyone coming to stay must like animals. Most of our dogs all live very happily outside on our land and have shelters and pens, but we do have some indoor dogs too.
We are animal lovers and are vegan and even though it is not a requirement for a Workaway to be vegan, we would ask that any Workaway staying be willing to eat only vegan within our home. You are. of course, free to eat whatever you like when you are out! We live in the foothills of the Caramella mountains, an area renowned for natural beauty, and on the doorstep to Els Port nature reserve. We are also only 15 minutes away from Tortosa, a bustling city with bars and many shops and rail and bus links to Barcelona and Tarragona.
We have WiFi and are off-grid powered by solar, with water direct from the Caramella mountains. Being off-grid is very liberating, but in times of overcast or rainy weather, we may need to restrict showers to every other day due to the electricity needed to power the water pump. We are also unable to use hairdryers or hair straighteners due to the energy needed to heat them.
We are non-smokers and ask that smokers do not smoke near the house as the windows are often open. We are happy to provide breakfast, lunch, and dinner on all of the days that you are at our home.
At the moment we are only looking for two Workaways, who are travelling together and who are happy to share a large bed in a double room, as we have no other rooms available. The period we need help is for a minimum of ten days and a maximum of two weeks starting from 28th October 2021.

We offer a full vegan experience and volunteers could learn many aspects of vegan cookery. We are also happy to assist with English language skills and would welcome assistance on learning Spanish. We also take part in social activities, such as quiz nights and local festas so workaways would be invited to accompany us if they wish to do so.
At the moment we are starting a project which requires us to put in new fencing, so the work can be physically demanding as it involves digging and laying concrete. We also need assistance with harvesting our carobs and olives.
We need daily help with our animals and have several light-building projects lined up. We also hope to plant our own veggies and work our large vegetable patch. You would also be asked to assist with light housework, such as washing up, sweeping floors etc.
