Hi world!!,

I'm Raul!! Me and some friends-collaborators we are organizing spaces in our property to develop a project related to nature, art and personal development. Currently we have a room where classes and workshops of different disciplines such as yoga, dance or theater are offered, all the rest is in under construction.

We are located in a little village inside of a natural parc called Collserola beside to Barcelona. We are happy to have the opportunity to make this project. Hope we enjoy and learn together.

The house is 10 minutes walk from the train station to Barcelona (20 minutes trip), and 2 minutes from the little village La Floresta, where there are the usual shops and services.

Our property was abandoned for a long time, so we have a lot of work here.

We need easy going helpers, calm and responsible, who know work well and hard, preferably non smokers, (no smoking in all property), and vegetarian, with some skills in gardening, painting, construction, carpentry, furniture restoration, electricity, graphic design,community manager etc..

We are not master of anything but learners of all! then you can learn a bit of: veggi garden, plants care, building, clean well (ja ja ), yoga, veggie cooking, all it depend what we are doing when you arrive.

We offer a little simple room without windows (I'm sorry), near the kitchen, may can be a bit annoying when someone is cooking and you want to sleep, but we try to be in silence between 23h to 7h. Anyway this house is big and there is common areas for relax, do yoga, read, or anything. If you are flexible sure you will be happy here.
We offer towels and bed linen. Bathroom and kitchen are shared with other people.

We don't offer meals, only accommodation. You have to buy and make your food. Sometimes we eat or we cook together, but normally everyone do his own plan. Here we are mostly vegetarian or vegan, then we ask don't cook meat during your stay please.

Normally we ask for work around 3 hours a day, 5 days a week. But we need flexibility about that, some days we can work more and next day free, or work weekend and have days off during the week for example. After breakfast, we start working at 9am and we stop around noon.

After work you feel free to stay in home and do your own activities, go for a walk, explore the natural park of Collserola, visit Barcelona, or just relax. If you like music takes you headphones, here we prefer silence most of the time.

We also hope that, as is logical, the helpers keep spaces clean and tidy during their stay. Also expected of the helpers to keep common areas clean and tidy at all times, because we are sharing space with other people. The cleanliness and general order of spaces, is something to maintain outside working hours, as in any shared house.

One more thing, we have a few bad experiences with lazy people, if we are not happy with the exchange, we feel free to say bye bye, you too:)

After this be happy and enjoy, live is nice!! Ask any questions you have before coming. Hope to hear from you soon!!

Best regards from La Floresta,
