  • Descrição


    Hello everybody! We are a family of 3 who are looking for people who can help us with the tasks of our country house. These tasks are very diverse and are related to the garden, the chickens and the maintenance of the house (garden, painting, construction, cleaning...)

    For those who sign up early will be able to help prepare an organic garden from scratch, do the care, harvesting, winter preparation, etc...

    Another job is to feed the chickens and collect the eggs. Also to open them to walk and eat in a natural way. All the food is organic and, therefore, also its production. Today, we have nine hens and a friendly but warlike rooster, named "Wazi".

    And both the vegetables from the garden and the eggs can be used for your own food.

    Other jobs include rebuilding a stone wall using hydraulic lime, weeding the garden, mowing the lawn, painting, etc... And also taking care of our two dogs "Lluna" and "Kala".

    About ourself, we are passionate about nature, sports and gastronomy in this area. But we also love to travel and meeting new cultures.

    In my particular case, I really like plants and their pharmacological uses. I have my small laboratory in a corner of the house where I prepare some tinctures and ointments. Of course I will be happy to share my knowledge if anyone is interested. I am also a member of the traditional Catalan showgroup 'Els senyors del foc'. We do "correfocs" all over Girona and the south of France and we are known as "Diables". If you like this kind of fire show, you can come and play with the devils in the fire.

    My wife, Anna, she is a yoga teacher and does some classes at the farm and some in other rooms. You are also welcome to join the classes she does in our farm room.

    One of the basic pillars in social relationships for us is respect and discretion. Therefore, we ask that applicants take this detail into account. We do not like the dicussions, nor the fights, nor the conflictive situations. We like to live independently, with respect and with love. We wish that volunteers can enjoy these characteristics when they are with us, so any behavior that is not respectful, conflictive or childish would mean not continuing in our project.

    Regarding our work standards, we consider ourselves hardworking and persevering people who adapt to what may come.

    We hope to enjoy with volunteers a great time and sharing knowledgment and experiences.
