We are a Belgian family who have been living in Southern Catalonia, Spain for 5 years now. We live on an organic olive farm (4 hectares), close to the sea (Costa Daurada) and mountains. Next to our house we run a charming guest house with swimming pool. We keep bees and have our own local honey. We have no mains electricity and water. We get our energy from solar panels and water from a well. We have three dogs and two cats.
We are looking for confident, reliable, keen, responsible, flexible hard working volunteers.
We don't accept smokers, drug users or heavy drinkers.
We ask our volunteers to help us with:
Weeding, clearing and fertilizing the land, composting, pruning olive and almond trees, picking olives and almonds (in season), pool maintenance (in season),painting, building, farming, gardening,general maintenance, or any other urgent odd job.
You will be working 5-6 hours/day and 5 days/week.
Accomodation:
If there are no guests you can use the guest house.
Three meals provided on working days. You can take your tent with you and put on our land if you prefer.
What we offer:
While helping us you will learn about olive and almond trees, olive oil production, beekeeping, organic gardening, baking artisan bread, sustainable living...
You can use a mountainbike to explore the beautiful nature and places of our region. The coast and beaches are only 12 kms away. You can also make lovely walks among the numerous olive and almond groves, along the large beaches, in the hills and mountains, along the rice fields in the flat Ebro-Delta, or in the heavenly barrancas (dry rivers).
You can learn the basics of some new languages during your stay.
You will taste some delicious, typical Catalan, Spanish and Belgian dishes and we will be glad to learn you how to prepare them.
If necessary we can take you by car to the village for shopping.
Experience life in another culture and in plain nature.
