  • Description

    Description

    Hi, we are a young family composed by Berta, Edu and our child Niu (1.5 y o) (and another one in the oven!).

    We are living in an off-grid farm 1 h from BCN. Berta does workshops there related to herbs and vegan gastronomy and we all are interested in self-sustainable living, organic food, health and happiness.

    Our long term project is to share our farm by enhancing the variety of workshops hosted and becoming an inspirational space for self-sustainable living here in Catalonia, we have an environmental volunteering project starting in February, placed in teepees in our property.

    For now, though, we need help with babysitting our child Niu for some time a day during weekdays. Berta is pregnant and quite tired and we're both very busy with the new project and house duties, and we want to be present with our child when we're with them.

    We're looking for someone who loves kids and learning from/with them, who sees nature intercation as the best possible activity to do with them. Their job would be to basically be outdoors (if the weather allows it) visiting the chickens -and at the same time feeding them-, walking through the forest, playing with natural materials and just being present for him.

    We try to consume local organic products and to avoid non biodegradable materials. We also apply this mindset to basically everything we can: we try not to use the car too much, to make as many things ourselves/consume the least we can and to not spend much resources in order to live. We live off grid -solar panels and well water only-, so we'll need you to be aware of using few electricity & water. We don't have hot water (so we try to not shower too much and we heat water in pots for that). We are also commited to a local NGO that organizes debates, documentary shows, and workshops, which you could totally participate in despite the language difference -they are generally in catalan but we're happy to translate-.

    As we are pretty busy with our duties and activism & social activities we appreciate people with initiative and who are autonomous. Everyone with gardening, building, woodworking, electricity skills is especially welcomed.

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    You'll have your own room, with shared toilet, into the main house.

    We barely eat animal products and we like to cook simple yet delicious meals, which are based on organic cereal and different local beans plus some wild or bought veggies. However, if you want to have some snacks, extra treats, dairy, or meat, you're welcome to bring it yourself and use the common fridge, though we would appreciate your understanding of our plastic-free path -we can help you by showing you no-waste grocery places-. We'd love to show you some of our local dishes, a few wild experiments...and also to let you bring your country's essence into our kitchen.

    It is also very important to us that you respect and understand our cleaning, cooking and living dynamics: we really care about having clean, organized, well-kept, beautiful and peaceful spaces; and that has a specific form to us, that we will gladly show you in order for you to adjust to it.

    We also try to not go shopping more than once a week and our economy is very frugal, so we'd also appreciate you to understand our ways of preparing and managing food. We are completely off-grid, so we try to consume little electricity and water. We cannot provide daily showers nor offer connection for high-impedance devices (such as hair-dryers, electric heaters, etc).

    The spot is stunning and on the days off you can visit Barcelona in less than 1h 30 by public transport, and within 1 hours if you have your own car. If you like nature, hiking and animals you'll enjoy a lot being there. We have dogs and cats, which all live in perfect harmony with eachother. You'll be also able to use a small pool in summer!
    There's also a piano -which is a little bit untuned, but works- and a violin.
    There is public transport that runs during the week, and that you can reach within 30 min from home.
