yes we are NOW OPEN !

perhaps you feel very alive and would like to share your interest in :
nature, loosening up, building with wood, digging the earth, inner-music, creative improvisation and ... silence ...

You can work with, learn and support
`permaculture` y ` eco-cultura musical sostenible` by visiting this project on the island of Mallorca en españa.

You can help fertilize this space with your happiness and enthusiasm.
Real laughter as well as deep concentration and flex ability are the most important tools in this eco-environment.

There are no classes here, no fixed program, but rather lots of little projects you can try out.
It`s important to observe, listen very well and follow, often without specific instructions.

You will get the feel of it, if you are really interested and you can ask about any aspect of this experiment.

Within the helpx plan,
1 or 2 volunteers at a time are welcome.

Please communicate indicating if you have any experience with, or would especially enjoy :
`woofing`, cooking, free style carpentry, fixing bicycles, maintaining solar energy sistems,
learning how to live well with less money
and how to feel great by `doing it yourself`.

** right now help is especially needed with cleaning, painting and organizing our living spaces, building an outdoor bathroom, cooking, planting and caring for our organic garden **

The idea is to understand by doing ... experimenting with vegetables, fruits, flowers and trees ... recycling, learning from each other, sharing, working alone, ecological construction, food preparation, cleaning up ...

You can work in order to learn how ! you can discover and explore work as pleasurable through creative activities. it all depends on you !

You can visit us as a volunteer,
with the possibility of staying on a bit longer.

*** please note : at this time our cost for your food is not included (Por ahora, el costo de su comida no esta incluido). Also, there are special conditions for your introductory week which we can speak about in a telefone or whatsapp call before confirming dates (Tambien hay condiciones especiales para su primera semana que ponemos clarificar en una conversacion telefonica o whatsapp, antes de confirmar fechas).

To start with ...
our minimum visit is 14 days

(We are also looking for 1 or 2 individuals
to join our project for perhaps a bit longer)

Our experience is that ...

1. In the first week, with some general
introductory guidance you can begin to get a
feeling of what is going on here.

2. By the 2nd week, you may be able contribute
something of value both to yourself and
this project.

... after that, if it feels comfortable and you are invited to stay on ... you can just relax and enjoy this inspiring island and your continuing discovery of the basic eco-systems in position here.

there is no income generated from the work on this farm farm. it is simply a shared project, both energetically and economically.

For the 1st and 2nd week of your visit as a guest volunteer, you can share free of charge this land and house , water, electricity, plants, seeds, furniture, project materials, wood, cooking gas, tools, automotive fuel, oil, repairs, etc. as well as our `learning laboratory`.

In return, we ask for an average of 5 hrs p/day-6 days p/wk of your active involvment.

Sometimes we may work longer hours one day, if the weather or change of season needs an intense response
and have some free time another day.

* usually : mornings are free, with a meeting at 13:30h
jobs beginning around 14:30h, lunch at 16:30
siesta and final projects 17:30-21:30.

Working here ... on these projects ...
gives us the opportunity and freedom to learn by doing.

This is not a job and you will not be employees ...
but you will want to work because ...

We share this experiment as part of our
personal self-development ...

We hope you will be honest
giving your full measure of creative energy ...

Getting connected can be a natural high !


Here`s a little bit of our history.
and what inspired this project here in Mallorca :

In Capilla del Monte ( a village of musicians, artists and like minded individuals ... located in the hills of Córdoba, Argentina) I connected with an inspiring group of friends.

These generous individuals shared with me their books and good advice on `permaculture`, which is basically a practice of `total ecology`.

Perhaps it is posible to integrate more with our universe by connecting with and caring for `mother earth` ... her plants and some of the other creatures with whom we share this planet ... ´´


Agricultura ecológica (en una finca compartida)
Compartimos: el campo, la casa, música interior y en vivo,
la huerta, comida sana, danza, silencio, alegría, limpieza y comodidad.

Hola voluntarios,
Aqui un poco de la historia sobre que ha inspirado nuestro
proyecto en Mallorca ...

En mi vivencia en Capilla del Monte, Cordoba Sierras, Argentina, he conectado con un centro de permacultura. Me han pasado libros importantes y algunas prácticas de permacultura: una forma de ecología total, integrando el amor de las plantas, la tierra (pacha mama), los seres humanos y todos los bichos con quien compartimos este planeta.
La idea es entender ... haciendo ... experimentando en la huerta biológica y construyendo con materiales naturales y reciclados.

Este centro de premacultura me inspiró para iniciar proyectos en la finca donde vivo y compartir con otros de corazón y alegría el reír y profundizar nuestra conectividad con la naturaleza ... aprendiendo uno del otro.

There are 2 rooms available for volunteers:
1 rm with 2 single beds
1 rm with a double.

Also, there are lots of common spaces, both inside and out.

**** Please bring your own sleeping sheet or sleeping bag ****

Tenemos 2 habitaciones para voluntarios:
1 hab con dos camas
1 hab con una cama doble.
Tambien hay muchos espacios al uso libre ... dentro y fuera
This is a space for non-smokers, but you can smoke outside, if necessary.

Its best to plan your `general tourism` for before or after
your visit here.
To fully enjoy this musical environment, it`s important that you are really interested in ecology, permaculture, waking up your body, improving your personal communication, sharing human warmth ... and ...
that you have the free time in your planning for the possibility of staying on longer than the minimum visit of 14 days, if you connect.

we can speak : spanish, english, french, dutch, mallorquin or in general some form of body language : hand gestures, facial expressions or vocal noises etc.

To get here :
From the airport or ferry terminal,
you can take a local bus to plaza espanya.
Down some stairs, you will find the trains.
Purchase your ticket to `estacion consell/alaro`.
Its about 20 min ... a lovely ride through the countryside
and costs about 2 euros.
Last train leaves palma at 22h

If you call us on your mob fone just before you get on the train
(also, there are public fones outside the palma train station)
we can come and pick you up
at the bus stop in the consell/alaro train station
some time after 14h.

We invite you to communicate with us ...
Please write and tell us about yourself,
... a little personal history ...

and what can you do to help out ?
Este finca es un laboratorio de aprenticaje, un aventura vivencial para individuos motivados, que quieren/pueden trabajar ... en solitario y/o compartiendo con otros.

Aqui, trabajamos and aprendemos con intensidad y alegria.

calor humano y `permacultura`.
