Holaa..!! My name's Manel and I live between Horta de Sant Joan and Bot, two cosy little villages in the Southwest of Catalonia (Spain). This area called Terra Alta is known specially for the catalan good wines and the great natural area of Els Ports de Beseit.; tu
Over 8 years I've been working on a project which is based on a concept of self-sufficiency, construction and experimentation with materials available in the area where I am, like working with stone, wood or cane.
Please, elementary spanish level is required because I don't speak English.

First, volunteers are supposed to help me doing some building works in order to have more livable places and to tune the much comfort as possible for the next volunteers. So,building skills are needed.(Restoring the old buildings, recovering stone walls, making dry toilets,...)
Besides, there is much more work to do like implementing a sustainable garden, improving/maintaining the zones created and cooking. So, it's important that volunteers have the skills to cook his own food.
In addition to this, the month of July is very hot what make us to get up early in order to avoid the hottest hours of the day.

My purpose is to publicize the area and make a knowledge exchange. You will learn alternative technology, building walls of stone dry, bio-building, crops,...
If you are a nature lover,you're respectful to her and not afraid to challenges, be sure this is your experience..!!!

Near my plot there is a natural water zone to swim and contemplate all the nature around. There are also some footpaths if you prefer to go hiking with lot of places to find out.
To get at the place I can pick you up in l'Aldea or Tortosa. There are several trains and buses which go from Barcelona to there.
For internet connection you must go to the nearest villages.
Important to bring mosquito repellent.!! Insect-prone area.
