Hi everyone!

I'm starting off a permaculture project in one of the most beautiful areas of the Sierra de Gata (Extremadura, Spain). It needs some volunteers boost, people willing to contribute with their effort in exchange for a lot of learning and good experience.
The project is located in a 13000m2 estate full of olive trees, pines, oaks and berry bushes. There is also a creek with swimming areas, little ponds and waterfalls that crosses the land.
The project involves:
- The construction of a half-buried, bioclimatic, spiral shaped house made of stone and hiperadobe, and green cover following natural shapes.
- Restoration of farmland and terraces typical of the area.
- Creation of an edible forest.
- Grow and maintain a vegetable garden.
- Reforestation of the environment with native species.
- Recovery of the banks of the river.
- Implementation of renewable energy sytems and auto construction techniques.

The work and the country life is tough in the first stage but very rewarding.

The area is ideal for hiking and rural tourism.

Accommodation is in a shared room or in an individual tent. The food is vegetarian.

Thank you very much !!
