This is an environmental education / permaculture project run by teacher and activist Anna Gurney in the Matarranya region of Spain. 2.5 hours from Barcelona, near Calaceite town. The project is a collaboration between Anna herself and any permaculture teachers, volunteers, friends and travellers who are interested in getting involved. Over the years the main house, outdoor kitchen and campsite facilities have been built and many people have participated in courses, workshops and retreats. Anna now has a two-year old daughter so there are increasingly activities designed for families too! immediate objectives: - develop the site according to a permaculture design and finish the small house for guests. - promote permaculture and activism through practical projects and courses. the land: 1.5 hectares of olive terraces and two piney hillsides at the bottom of the Vall Rovira, Matarranya, Spain. two nearly finished buildings, no mains water, not much electricity just trees and nightingales. photos.

The facilities are extremely basic with no hot water and compost toilets. There are two places to sleep (apart form if you bring a tent) which are a yurt, and an old stone shed. Both have comfortable beds and wood burning stoves. There is an almost fully equipped kitchen.

The land and the surrounding area are beautiful pine forests, hills and rocks. You can barely see another building, and it is an extremely peaceful place, perfect for enjoying nature. There is a stunning river nearby where we can swim when it's warm enough, and the local town is a 5 minute drive.
