  • Description


    Hi everyone,

    We are Pablo (Spain) and Eva (Netherlands). Together with our baby girl Ayla we live in a formerly abandoned village in northern Spain. We are interested in bio construction, alternative living, sustainable resources, ecological gardening and regeneration of the surrounding mountain/ forest.

    At the moment we are building a little straw bale house in a hexagonal shape called 'flexagon' after the principals of Tom Rijven. Straw and clay walls mainly and we just started with the roof and the finish coat of the walls. We are looking for people who are skilled or interested in carpentry, construction and con building and are interested in joining and learning about biocontruction for the months of April, May and June.

    Next to the building project we have many other projects around the village. As are the gardens/ fruit trees/ bee hives/ cutting firewood and maintaining and improving existing constructions.

    Pablo works part time at a garden center and brings back many plants and trees to give a new home. We noticed that since the baby is born, it takes a lot of effort keeping up with all the projects we have running here. Because with the job on the one hand and the baby on the other, we have our hands quite full and could really use some help :)

    We are interested in hosting people who can stay a minimum of three weeks. We like to get to know our visitors and that our visitors get to know us and learn in depth about the project and we noticed from previous experience that one or two weeks stay tend to be too short.
