The Experience

Tenemos un huerto familiar, cultivado biológicamente, por supuesto. Hacemos nuestro propio pan, conservas... y podemos enseñar a hacerlo. Estamos a 15 km de bellas playas de la Costa Brava, en verano vamos con los voluntarios con frecuencia. Ofrecemos alojamiento y comida a cambio de 4-5 h al día 5 días a la semana, ayudando en el huerto, mantenimiento de instalaciones y ayuda en casa. Hay wifi y biblioteca de temas alternativos para consulta.

Quisiera agradecer esta experiencia en el pueblo de LLagostera cerca de Girona. Silvia y Jesús, los dueños de casa, logran que te sientas muy a gusto, conociendo las costumbres locales y ayudándoles en sus instalaciones y huertas. Diría que un punto aparte es la comida tan sana y deliciosa que se disfruta en la mesa, elaborada por Silvia y el rico pan artesanal de Jesús. Las personas que viven en la casa son muy amables, te sientes feliz como en casa.
Frente al trabajo, todo es respetuoso escuchando y considerando las experiencias que quiere vivir el voluntario y las necesidades de la casa

Las tareas varian entre domésticas y de huerto/jardinería dependiendo las necesidades. Cada día hay algo nuevo y diferente por hacer, nunca te aburris. Silvia y Jesus te incorporan a las actividades extras (en mi caso fuimos a unas charlas sobre herbolarios en otra ciudad) y ahí mismo conviven otras personas con las cuales unx establece contacto, conoce, comparte, etc. En la urbanización no hay tiendas así que para comprar hay que bajar al pueblo, se puede hacer en bicicleta o siempre hay alguien que te puede acompañar. Sin duda lo recomiendo.

Sol i vent és casa, es reconectar con la naturaleza y tener el espacio para encontrarte a ti. Silvia y Jesús son almas bonitas que te van a ayudar en todo y te van a hacer sentir parte de la familia. Aquí puedes encontrar un hogar, vivir la naturaleza y reconectar con la tierra. Sin duda, me dejo un cachito de mi corazón en esa casa, así que volveré sin dudar.
