  • Description

    Description

    Large and varied finca (farm) in rural Spain, close to the coast, airports, trains, mountains & villages as well as the awesome Catalonian cities like Barcelona. Developing a permaculture, organic, self-sufficient, off-grid, ecological and a wildlife haven. Goats, chickens, 2 dogs and many geckos!
    After many years planning, we moved into our farmhouse 2018 and still have much to do and little in the way of luxuries. This will not be home away from home for sure, living a minimalist life but one rich in health, variety and well-being.
    I had a long career as an IT specialist in London but now spend my days farming, making cheese and fostering nature in any way I can. For sure, you'd never be bored and would gain life skills and a great experience. Our ethos is about caring for our World by doing what we can locally, working hard, enjoying life, not harming others, being independent and building a centre of excellence for permaculture - with your help!

    Now this is important, it can be really busy here and mature, experienced and strong helpers will fit right into the daily routine and the many challenging projects.
    I am keen to provide learning opportunities, but simply don't have time for full time teaching or providing entertainment for those who are mainly out to just have fun. Good luck to you but for our needs, that won't work :)
    While here, you will learn a lot but be realistic about us and yourselves. This will help manage expectations and you will have a more rewarding visit.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    English, some German and of course, Spanish.
    This farm is about building a centre for Permaculture, the first in this area. There are many important life skills from this ethos alone but we'll also pass on our skills and knowledge of farming, animal care, ecology and building practices e.g. how to build a straw/cobb shelter or dry-stone building.
    Depending on preferences, we would encourage you to join us exploring and enjoying our part of Spain and in your own time, borrow a mountain bike, hike the hills, swim in the nearby sea or explore local villages.

  • Aide

    Aide

    Depending on the season, we tend to work within temperate periods i.e. not during the hottest times of the day! We'd much prefer to do short periods of focused work and then rest and enjoy life.
    You'd have very clear instructions, only enough supervision as needed, work across farm activities as appropriate to your abilities, learn from us and others we spend time with e.g. off-grid group workdays.
    Safety conscious, working within limits and skills, set reasonable expectations and appreciate motivated and exceptional people who will help make this finca special.

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    Currently, accommodation is the spare room in the house, but one of the early projects is to complete a small casita up on one of the terraces, which would offer future guest & workaway accommodation.

    Can provide for a vegetarian diet but usually include our own organic chicken or goat meat, 3 meals a day.

    Autres infos...

    We are several kilometers from nearby villages and off-grid as far as public transport is concerned. However, from our local town, there are very good bus & train services. We are only 40km from Reus airport also and 100km from Barcelona. We have a mountain bike for your use.
    Being in the hills, there are hundreds of pathways to explore and even our own finca is 12Ha and offers abundant walking and exploration.
