    Descrição

    We are keen to have volunteers for the end of November/early December for Olive picking.

    Hello! We are a couple living with two dogs, some guinea pigs and a beautiful view on an olive farm on the Coll De L'alba in Catalunyan. We are situated on a top of a terraced mountain side surrounded by olive, carob and fig trees. We have breath taking panoramic views of the delta ebre and the surrounding area.

    The house is a rustic, traditional stone Masia (with two separate annex rooms for volunteers and guests) which is off grid: we do have running hot water for showers and wifi (from solar and a generator).

    We need help! The land around the finca has not been farmed for many years and we are attempting to reclaim it without using chemicals or heavy machinery. We aim to be organic and self sufficient.

    We are located halfway between Barcelona and Valencia: just twenty minutes from the nearest large town, Tortosa, and twenty minutes from the beach. There are excellent bus and train services in the area. We have bikes that can be borrowed.

    We eat a predominantly vegetarian diet but do eat some meat.

    I am an ex-Steiner teacher and Matt is a landscape gardener and designer. We are keen to share skills and meet people. We are learning Catalan and speak fluent English, some poor French and Spanish as well!
