Eco Living Project in Rasquera

Hey everybody!! First we would like to they, what help is needed in the moment and it will be great, if u have some skills in that work, or if u dont feel bad to work hard for 5 hours a day.


The things we are doing in the moment:
-BUILDING a Chirinquito (a little Cottage)with wood from the forrest and other Building Projects (in August we start building a little Straw/Claim house)

-Working in the Garden / building raised Beds, new fields for growing vegetables, transplant vegetables etc.

- Cutting and collecting Firewood

- Collecting Stones for our buildings (Nature stone Walls, Raised Bed, Repairing old Walls

Thats the Jobs to do in the moment! Actually it could be possible, that we can offer just a Tent, cuz we having Workshops in July (Permacultur), with some guests around, who rent the Caravan and Housetents. So please ask, what place to stay we can offer.

MORE ABOUT US: ;-)

We are two german women who have been searching for many years for a place where we can live a quieter and more contemplative life, close to nature.
We were fortunate to have found a lovely finca of 1.7 hectares outside the traditional Catalan village of Rasquera, in the north east of Spain.

The Finca is close to the river Ebro, the beaches of the Costa Daurada and also to the Sierra de Cardo mountain range and Els Port National Park, as well as to many small and interesting villages. On this nice almond and olive finca we grow our own vegetables, keep chickens for their eggs and collect as much rainwater as we can, although we are connected to mains agricultural water if we run short. There are also some fruit trees and are constantly planting new varieties. We live off grid, so get all our energy from solar power. Our aim is to create a peaceful sanctuary where people can come to relax and enjoy nature.
