About the workproject

We need 3 volunteers

We are running a retreat centre close to barcelona and almost always can use some extra hands. We work together with a local dog rescue and often have puppies or other dogs to take care of. In addition we have our own 4 dogs, chicken, a piggy, lots of cats and soon 2 horses!!
We prefer to have people stay minimally for a few weeks. End of may we will have lots of cherries and nisperos to be picked and pitted, we always need extra hands in this period!

We have worked with volunteers for the last 12 years and most of them love it here and are still in touch and come back to our place, bring their friends or family and come and hang out with us.

we are located in a safe rural environment far away from corona........

drop us a mail and we can see how your skills match our needs !
